Does the door ajar light usually come on when the lift gate is open? The switch might be bad on it?

My door adjar light is on but i can still lock the car so where are the door light switches located


The door ajar switches are a micro switch that is twist locked into the door latch inside the door, any one of the switches can cause this problem so the wise thing to do is have the Ford dealer scan the system that controls body accessories when the problem occurs and see which switch is acting up and needs to be replaced.

1999 mercury villager interior light won't go off.


If the door adjar light is on than you have a bad door switch. They are part of the door latch assembly. It is more common for the drivers side to go bad but it could be anny of them. A scan tool would be helpful in narrowing down which one it is. What you can try is spraying carb or brake cleaner into the part of the door that holds the door shut (the latch). Spray it into every nook and crany in that area. Open and close the door several times will a serving the door adjar light. If it goes out problem solved. If it doesn't go out get it scanned to see which one has failed and then pull that door pannel to inspect. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Interior lights wont go out


First you can check your door adjar switches. Unplug one at a time to see if your dome light shuts off. If it shuts off replace switch that was unplugged. If this does not help your problem is the ignition switch. Thanks

Open door lite stays on --we cannot lock the car with the remote alarm botton? 2000 ford taurus


You may have a bad door switch. The alarm is usually wired into the door adjar switch amongst other things. If the alarm system is being told that your door is still adjar due to a bad switch in the door jam then it's quite possible that the alarm system will not operate the locks if it thinks the door is adjar in which is also evident by the dome light staying on. Sounds like a switch. If not the switch then I would lean more towards the alarm system being responsible.


Good Luck. I hope this has at least narrowed down your search if not pinpointed it.

Door ajar light and auto locks keep going on and off while drivin


It sounds like there is a short somewhere. Either a bad ground, pinched wire going from the door to the fuse box, or a possibly a bare wire shorting out onto something. You say that the door adjar light and the door locks are affected. Check the door switch and make sure that it isn't broken, shorted out or sticking. Function test it. If you disconnect the door switch and take a test drive does the problem still exists? Yes? Disconnect the other side. Did that cure the problem? Yes? Replace as necessary. No? The problem isn't in your door switch(s). So that much has been ruled out. These are just some areas to start trouble shooting. At first I immediately thought "Door Lock Switch," but when you mentioned that the Door Ajar light keeps going on along with the light then it leads me away from the Controls and more towards the Door light Switch usually in the jam of the door, but you didn't mention the year, make and model, so location of the switch is obscure. If the door locks are switching on and off and the door adjar light is in harmany with it then make sure the door is secure, not loose when closed allowing the door adjar switch to break the connection. These are the areas I would investigate first. Is there a significant amount of slop in the door when you push and pull on the door like it isn't secure? These are some areas to take into consideration when trouble shooting.

Good luck. I hope this helps narrow things down for you.

2000 jeep cherokee interior lights wont turn off


I would check the door adjar switches. IF all the door adjar switches check okay, then check the head light switch .

Assuming the head light switch and door adjar switches are okay , Then there is a wiring problem. This is the worst case scenario .
