Try spraying WD-40 into the door latching mechanism (door side). I learned this fix after two battery replacements, but have only had to spray twice in the more than seven years of ownership

Door ajar light stays on as well as interior lights when all doors are closed


Most vehicle door open light works by a spring loaded contact switch. The switch body acts as ground. when the door is closed the switch depress disconnecting positive from ground. Seems that one of your door switch may be bad. Look for a rubber covered sitch on the door jam you should be able to remove the rubber cover to access the switch for a good inspection.

Try spraying wd40 into each door latch. Do it one at a time then open and close the door about a dozen times spray some more in there after about 6 open and closes. Do this with each door and even the hatch. This should clear ya right up.

2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed


I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.

Door ajar and interior lights stay on constantly


The switch that tells the computer that the door is closed is broken or has a loose wire.This causes the computer to think the door is open thus the door ajar and interior light on.Switch should be located on door jam.
