I have a 2000 Lincoln Continental that is having problems with the driver side door. We had just gotten it back over a check engine light concern and getting the back windows fixed. While driving in...

Same thing happened to me. I agree with the lubrication solution...I sprayed some wd40 where the latch is as I did not want to take the door apart and it fixed the problem for me.

The door ajar light comes on and stays on when door is closed. then you can't use any computer services. is there a drivers door sensor, if so where, or is it in the computer itself.

The switch for "door ajar" is located in each door, attached to the latch mechanism. This is a common problem. Using your favorite petroleum based lubricant, spray it liberally into the door latch mechanism (as seen from the rear face of the door). Open and close the door several times. Go from door to door, doing this for each one, until you find which door was causing the issue. You might have to re-lube the doors from time to time, but this should solve your problem.

Good luck.

How do i fix my door ajar problem? It came on today and now my interior lights stay on when I turn the car off. I have repeatedly open and closed all the doors but the problem is still happening.

The door ajar switch is located inside the rear door face along with the latch. They can tend to get dirty and sticky over time. Using your favorite petroleum based lubricating spray, shoot it directly into the door latch area, being very liberal. Open and close your doors several times to make sure the switch is working freely. You should do this one door at a time so you can diagnose which door is causing the issue in case it resurfaces. Should be good to go.

Good luck

I have a 1999 continental and the interior lights will not go out, and the door ajar warning stays on.

Open the doors, squit WD40 in the looks, open and shut the doors a few times. that will take care of it

97 lincoln continental says door is ajar.

the door switches are part of the door latch, the easiest way to remedy this is to spray liberal amounts of WD40 into each latch and open and close the each door a few times, this should loosen up the latch and solve your problem.

Hope this helps.

Dome light comes on by itself long after door is closed

On the 01 Lincoln it has something to do with the keyless pad on the door press and hold button 9-0 till the green light around it goes out!
