Depending on the make model and year, it could be a sensor in one of the door latches.

SOURCE: Ford taurus door ajar light stays on

Try using some WD40 in the door latches. Open and close the doors several times this should free up the sticking switch

SOURCE: Interior Lights and Door Ajar light stay w/beeping noise.

Try spraying WD-40 into the door latching mechanism (door side). I learned this fix after two battery replacements, but have only had to spray twice in the more than seven years of ownership

SOURCE: 2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed

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.

SOURCE: door ajar light stays on

go to your local parts store and buy a can of PB BLASTER lubricant then open each door and spray the latch assembley really good then close and open the door 10 to 15 times. do this with each door. the door ajar light switch is located in the door latch assembley and cannot be seen so soak the latch assembleys really good so lube reaches the switch. these switches sometimes get stuck but this usually frees up the switch

97 f150 dome and rear cargo lights stay on. how do i fix this


Chances are this is a case of a dirty door ajar switch, which is part of of the door latch.

The way to check ( fix ) this is to spray down the latch liberally and close open the door a few times.

It might take 2 or 3 cycles of this to get the door ajar switch to start working again.

There is a thread in the electrical forum at F150online that covers this, with pictures of where to spray the WD-40 if it is not clear.

My cargo and interior lights wil;l not go off on my 2002 F-150 I need to lnow what fuse it is or fuses?????


This is usually caused by the door ajar switch not making contact.
The door switch is part of the door latch on the F-150.

Liberally spray the door latch with WD-40, close and open a few times. Repeat this process 3 or 4 times, and check the interior lights / door ajar indicator on the cluster.

There are pictures of where to spray in a sticky in the Electrical forum on F150online.com if you need them. This is a somewhat common problem, to get dirt and gunk in the door ajar switch, causing the contacts to stay open.

Door adjar warning light stays on. Dome and cargo light stays on.


You need to remove the door ajar sensors from the doors and clean and lube them. You must remove the interior door panel then remove the door latch. Then twist the switch out of the latch to work on it.

How do I remove the door panel on a Ford F250 Supercab. I'm trying to find the switch for the ''doors adjar' light which won't go off and subsequently keeps my dome and outside bed light on and draws down...


the door adjar switch is the problem. the cargo light stays on until 35mph, as well as the overhead dome light. i just took the bulb out of the dome light and dont worry about the cargo light. it stays on for 30 min after the truck is turned off if the switch didnt trip properly. it shouldnt cause any problems as long as your batteries are good. i havent replaced the switch yet but it should be on the part of the door by the latch. get the replacement part and do a visual I.D. when you get the panel off. then replace it. the sensor is only 14$

Rear access door ajar


What's your question ? Tailgate ajar light lit on the instrument cluster ?
The Body Control Module (BCM) monitors the lift glass and the cargo door ajar switches. When the switch closes, the path to ground is completed, and the BCM sends a class 2 message to the instrument cluster to display the CARGO DOOR AJAR message.There are two ajar switches for the rear door ,a left an a right ,the third switch is for the lift glass ajar switch . All three of these switches splice pack SP410 At ground point G410

(Shouldn't have any readings when door(s) and/or window closed.) It's the opposite . switches are open with door closed , G410
In the Body Harness, Behind the RR quarter trim panel near the D-Pillar
It turns out it has nothing to do with rear door. Something about drivers door actuator. NO IT DOESN"T !!!!
