You need to adjust what is called the striker located on the actual vehicle body
looks like a round piece of metal sticking out with a star head in it called a torx head
move the stricker out towards the latch on the door a little not too muck or the door will not seal all the way when shut

I have 2003 ford super duty that is an extra cab and when i close the door the dome light stays on and it says the dooor is not closed, when the door is closed all the way


spray the door latch with WD40 or, better yet, a good penetrating lubricant like PB Blaster, let it sit for a few minutes and then slam the door 15-20 times, it is a Ford thing.

1998 4x4 ford explore driver side door will not


There are long linkage rods from the inside handle to the latch assembly. There should be an adjustment on these links. Too tight keeps latch from locking, too loose it won't unlatch. Use a screw driver or rod to trip the latch asm so you don't have to keep opening and closing the door. Also if it sticks closed and won't unlatch, the door won't be locked closed on you.
