spray wd-40 in the latch on the doors then slam them a few times to loosen the switch on the latch that turns the light on with the key in the ignition and doors close if the chime rings like the key was left in the ignition then start with the drivers door
anit theft is activated. It should deactivate if you close all doors and hood and open with key or fob from outside of truck.
You must have opened a door by reaching inside and opening the door when it was locked. Once locked, it msut be unlocked with key or fob so the ouside lock sensor will tell the module it was unlocked porperly. Or, you have a bad door lock sensor switch.
I have a 1999 Ford Expedition that used to say 'door ajar' even though the doors were closed and locked.
I took it to the dealer, where they said they sprayed the lock mechanism with penetrating oil which freed something up.
Hasn't malfunctioned since.
is the door ajar light on sometimes also when driving? I had a similar problem with the light staying on. I determined that it was the passenger front door latch sticking. I opened the door, then took a screwdriver to push the latch shut on the door jamb. (Make the truck think the door is shut even though it is open). Then lubricate that jamb and pull the handle open to open the door. Keep doing this (closing with screwdriver and opening with handle) until the latch works freely. This took care of my light and door ajar problem.
If it is a motor problem, you can usaully hold the switch which ever way you want the window to go, and slam the door shut while holding the said switch. If it works then, you need the motor replaced. If not, you need to look at the switch itself, or make sure that the motor is getting power and ground when the button is pressed.
You have a bad starter. A faulty starter will function when its cold but when it heats up, it takes more energy to get the starter to engage. Your problem is exhibiting the classic symptoms of a bad starter. I hope this solves your problem and the best of luck to you.
