You replaced lift gate ,with a used one ? Did you replace door ajar switch with new one ? An what's this ovedrive ? Do you mean overdrive light ? If so the door ajar has nothing to do with that . When that light comes on you have a transmission problem .
To temporarily solve the light problem, I taped a washer to the inside of the door where the door hits the plunger on the light switch. A permanent solution would be to drill a hole in the door at this spot and put a self taping screw in that will trigger the switch sooner. I figured out the reason the dome light stayed on is due to the courtesy light timer and the lights would have eventually gone off.
sounds like thats your problem,the drivers door is the one that goes bad the most,switch is located in door latch.youll have to remove door panel,and maybe latch,call a ford dealer and ask if you could buy just the switch or do you have to replace latch asm.
Take some WD40 and open the doors and spray a liberal amount into each of the door latches. Then open and close the doors firmly several times. This will work most of the time to unstick the ajar switches.
The door ajar switches are located inside the door they are attached to the door latch assembly, they twist in, you will need to remove the rear window glass run channel to access them, this is your problem, the switches stick and cause this problem. There is a TSBconcerning this problem as well.
Spraying the door latch with a generous amount of WD40 the open and close the door several times will usually correct it most of the time. If not then you would have to remove the door panel and replace the dar adjar switch located on the bottom of the latch it self.
