I had the same problem. WD40 cured this in a flash! Be generous with the WD40 to allow parts to loosen and clean the "gue" that has built-up over the years. Several open and closings of the door should do the trick. Note that cold weather exasperates this condition. The best to you all in the new year!

Auto door lock don't work, they click when activated. Also the door ajar light stays on and auto light does not work. F350 super duty 2002 ford


You might need to oil the locks. Our truck does that some times. We just spray some WD40 on the catches and keep clicking them back and forth till it sinks it. As for the ajar light, the sensor inside of the door jam might be damaged. or the switch on the lights is turned on. I did that once.

Hello
Ford uses a tiny micro switch that is mounted on the door latch inside the door to turn on the dome light and provide door ajar sensing, the switches get water in them and this causes them to not make a good connection, it is a very common problem, i have replaced dozens of them at my dealer. Have the switches tested by the dealer, they do it with a electronic system scanner that can ID which of the 4 door switches is acting up.

Ford Taurus SE 1999. Dome Light - Door Ajar indicator problem. This is an intermittent problem, hence far more difficult to isolate. OK. I will be thorough in describing this "set of problems" as I do...


i must say that i feel your pain with this,, my door ajar light does the same thing but my dome light doesn't come on when the doors are open, i have to flick the switch on the dome light to make it come on. In my opion and i stress my opion it saounds like a issue with the body controller, im not sure what ford calls it but it controls all the body functions, i dont think the low coolant light is connected to the body contoller but i dont know this for sure, i think that light is controlled bny the engine ecm. some times a dealer can connect to the body controller and see if there are any fault codes for circuits that it controls and or monitors, also they can reflash or update the configeration and or calibration level cause ford release's fixes for issues all the time, same theory works for any control module on a vehicle. i dont think any of the auto parts stores have the right program to connect to bofy controlers but i could be wrong, worth looking into. i only put up with mine cause i use it as a beater, if you are worried about your dome light staying on and drianing your battery then you could pull out or disconnect the dome lights for the time being, its not a fix but just a band-aid.

Dome light stays on until you go over 25 mph


I have a 2002 Explorer as well. It mite be that the keyless entry box needs 2 be replaced. I had a similar problem with the door ajar thing and sum other lighting issues and that was the problem. Got it fixed and now I have no problems. The part costs like $25 but the labor, idk. A family member did it 4 me. Hope that helps. Good luck.

Try spraying some wd40 into all the latch assy. most lickly its the drivers door(it gets used the most). If that doesnt work it could be in the wire harrness going from the body of the car to the door(drivers door most likely).

1997 Tarus dome light and floor lights will not go out.


This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.
