I'm not familiar with the switch on that one. The quick fix is take bulb out of socket then find out what triggers the light. It's normally a small switch that is covered with a soft rubber cone shaped piece. It is normally on the body not the door.You will have to take the switch out to check it. Have you tried all the switches in the car? My car as a separate switch than the Light switch

SOURCE: door ajar alarm

The doorlach pin is faulty.
On newer vehicles it is inside the door on the locking mechanism.
It is stuck in the closed position, or has become dislodged.
Refer to your mechanic for repair.

I had te same problem and cleaned all door switches with WD-40 and worked them a little. The problem went away Try that before you try to change a switch.

Use a t-47 torx bit and adjust the latching pin in or out to line up the hatch, simple as that!!!

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Escape, dome light will not go off when

The door switch provides a ground to the dome light... so there is no danger to you if you want to attempt a removal of the switch. A rusted or shorted wire in the door switch (of any door) will keep the dome light on.

Can't get the dome lights to turn off.


If this started immediately after you bumbed the tree make sure it did not jar the back hatch door to were it is not shutting properly or you may have jarred the connection to the rear hatch door switch that makes the dome light go out,

The rear dome light will not turn off. Do you


The back hatch has a switch that is supposed to be turned off when the hatch is closed. The switch could be stuck or the hatch not hitting it right. You could just take the bulb out.

Dome light won't work exept by the override switch-sometimes


I seem to be having the exact opposite problem. I have a 99 chevy blazer and the dome light will not turn off unless I push the override button in. The radio does turn off as soon as I turn off the ignition key. If I leave the dome override button out, the dome light will constantly stay on even while I am driving. It used to work fine. Every now and them it starts working properly, but it hasn't worked right for a long time now. I tested all the switches and they all seem ok. They rear hatch is also closed. Does anyone know what the problem can be and how to fix it?

02 mountaineer dome light wont go off


Do you get a "Door Ajar" warning? If so that is keeping the light on. On my 03 Mountaineer, the rear hatch emblem has a crack around it that allowed the door sensor to think the door was open.

Dome light wont turn off


some times the door switch can be faulty. and it may be coincidence that the interior switch is faulty too. i have owned alot of S- series trucks and a few of them have done this to me. you need to individually check each door for switch contact
