2002 Ford Explorer "Door Ajar" stays on and Alarm frequently goes

The Alarm system go on by itself.(mostly in the middle of the night). I think the "door ajar" light has something to do with this. I need a fuse chart so I can maybe disarm the alarm, instead of disconnecting the battery. I just bought it used and didn't get a manual.

    Beep, beep, beep. If I open and reclose my tailgate door it will stop beeping. But the message center does not note the door ajar, just the 3 large beeps and the doors automatically lock and unlock.

If the door ajar light is on then get a can of PB BLASTER at your local parts store and spray all the door latch assembleys really good and open and close each door about ten to fifteen times this will usually free up the ajar switch

I had to maneuver the back door with a screw driver, and it fixed the problem.

My alarm on 2002 ford explorer goes on at random at night. Door ajar light comes on internittently. Any ideas on how to fix or disarm the Alarm?


most likely you have a door switch problem, you must take to shop to have it scanned, and they can tell you what door it is. most times it is drivers door, because that is the door that gets the most use.

Keyless entry isn't working and alarm was tripped


Check your door latches. Since the light stays on, one of them isn't reading properly. Once you get that fixed, the remote should work. The light problem could be related. The computer thinks the door isn't shut so that part of the system thinks you aren't moving.

Same basic problem. Happened after I took it to Astro Ford


You have a bad door switch. They are built into the latches.

Anti theft system for 2002 ford explorer.


take this to the dealer and have them scan the system door ajar switches, one or more is sticking, this is the problem with the alarm most likely as well, the door ajar switches (there are 6 on a 4 door) are twisted into the door latch inside the door without scanning the GEM (generic electronic module, controls locks and windows and wipers) you would have to pull all the door panels and taligate and test a each switch, a very expensive time consuming job.

Door ajar light remains on - 2002 ford explorer


Ford Explorer since 1995 has been using an in-door switch for the door jamb. Older versions used a plunger that you could easily test with with your fingers. The common problem is that the switch is not closed, this will cause your dome lite to be on, door ajar light on, and will malfunction any aftermarket auto alarm. Replace the switch, this is a known Ford problem.

Have you had the system checked and the codes pulled? If so and nothing was found,you can bypass each alarm trigger one at a time. If you have the patience, do this yourself and park the car where it happens. If the alarm stopsgoing off wrong,you have found the trigger and/or circuit setting it off. Sometimes this is what it takes because the system is operating in it's parameters and will not set a code? Good Luck.
