Question about Cars & Trucks
Checvkd the bakdor, it is ok. i donot want 2 tear apart the other doors. must be an easier way.thanks!
Door jam switches do require some dis assembly to diagnose since the wiring side is hidden inside the body. There is no other way.

It is a sticky sensor in the door latch mechanism. Spray it w/ WD-40 and follow up with a dose of silicone spray. Open/close doors several times and it should be ok. If you have a problem with 1 door the other 3 are sure to follow---DO THIS TO ALL 4 DOORS!!!!!!!!!

I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.

What happens when you remove both switches, and wires? What happens when you use a jumper wire acros both wires, on both doors?

There is a magnet type sensor in the door jamb and door that come together when you close the doors.You have to replace the magnet switch in the door that it is bad in. these newer model Fords are notorious for those particular switches going bad
