SOURCE: 95 ford windstar door ajar

These switches are inside the doors attached to the door latch assembles.If you know some one with a scan tool you can go into the body computer and see which one is showing open when all the doors are closed. The most likly one is the drivers side door or the two in the rear gate. I've replaced those the most.If you don't want to replace them you can unplug them and the lights will go off. Hope this helps. If you need more info let me know> Thanks Dan

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

SOURCE: door ajar alarm

The doorlach pin is faulty.
On newer vehicles it is inside the door on the locking mechanism.
It is stuck in the closed position, or has become dislodged.
Refer to your mechanic for repair.

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.

Ford fiesta ajar light stays on and central lock not working


The central locking will not work when a door is open. find the door which is ajar and fix the door switch. Could be a stuck switch (either open or shut) May just need a whack with a soft faced hammer on the door frame. Don't hit it too hard you could dent the panels.

Interoir lights stay on after truck shut off. 2002 Ford F-150 Super Cab. any hints on what to look foe?


If the interior lamps and the door ajar light stay on after removing the keys and closing the door, this is usually a sign that the door ajar switch is gummed up.

Liberal spraying of WD-40 in the latch and close open the door a few times. It can take up to 5 cycles of this to get the door ajar latch working correctly again.

There is a thread on F150online.com in the electrical forum ( sticky at the top ) that has pictures of where to spray the WD-40 if you are unsure on this.

My ford 2002 Escape's inside lights will not turn off... as well as the door ajared light stays on.


The problem is simple, one of your door switches is stuck. It is telling the car the door is open. I can't tell you which door switch it is One of them is bad. The good news is, you can buy one switch, and change it until you find the bad one. hope this helps. If this is it, let them know here.

2001 Ford Escape, dome light will not go off when door shut, but door ajar light is dark?Could this be the door switch? are there different switches for the door ajar light and the dome light? How can I...


The door switch provides a ground to the dome light... so there is no danger to you if you want to attempt a removal of the switch. A rusted or shorted wire in the door switch (of any door) will keep the dome light on.
