Door sensor won't turn off on my 2000 Dodge Stratus

When I am either backing up or moving forward, the door ajar light comes an and my dome light won't turn off. All of my doors are closed and so is the trunk. I tried turning it off by what the manual said but it is till on. What should I do? It just started acting up during the winter so I though that it was just cold, but it was not that. Nor was it the fact that the inside of the doors need to be cleaned.

Try spraying a silicone lube in the latch the latch doubles as a switch happens often in my ford make sure to use silicone and not a wd-40 type oil spray they collect dust and the problem will happen more often.

How do I get the door ajar/dome light to go out


I hear removing the relay for the door ajar will remendy this problem. So many people have replaced this relay and get no better results from it. My Ranger has the same problem ever since it was 9 months old. I tried two new relays and the problem comes back within months. That is why I just totally done away with mine. I rigged up a hot wire to my dome light so I can use it while I am in the truck. I know where the seat is in the dark so I don't need a dome light when I open my door.

02 Intrepid interior lights intermittent


the dimmer switch may be going bad--at night do you may see a change in the dash lighting as well --maybe even going off all together---sometimes adjusting the dimmer switch may give a temporary fix -the switch controls dash and dome lights and is a part that does wear with use
