SOURCE: door ajar light stays on along with dome light

I know the problem. Mine does it too. The fix is easy. Open & close doors to find which one is causing the problem. Open that door panel and find the release latch at back of door. There are 2 wire harnesses attached to the latch. Unhook the wires and spray sockets of latch. There is a ballbearing that gets stuck in switch. Lubricate that ballbearing and work latch manually several times. This problem will reoccur occasionally especially when there has been a lot of rain. Good Luck

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

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.

Your best bet would be to find a Tech like this guy , with the right diagnostic equiment . Door Locks Go Crazy 1 Unless you know how to do automotive electrical testing . Your door ajar switch is a input to a body control module . or GEM as ford calls thiers .
Door Locks Go Crazy 2 Your auto lights are controlled pretty much the same .
Electric Testing Techniques You Need to Know

Do you know what DTC"S are ? diagnostic trouble codes ! You probably have a door ajar switch problem . You need a factory or professional type scan tool to check these codes

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.

The door ajar switch is located inside the rear door face along with the latch. They can tend to get dirty and sticky over time. Using your favorite petroleum based lubricating spray, shoot it directly into the door latch area, being very liberal. Open and close your doors several times to make sure the switch is working freely. You should do this one door at a time so you can diagnose which door is causing the issue in case it resurfaces. Should be good to go.

Good luck.

The door ajar light stays on all the time. I tried to push in on the doors, but nothing works. Please help me John M


this is caused by the door ajar switch sticking. easiest and cheapest way to fix this is to spray a generous amount of wd-40/enforcer/pb blaster or like spray chemical into all the door latches. this will free up the sticking switch. spray it into all your door latches since we dont know which switch is sticking and spray a lot of wd-40 onto them

My door ajar light stays on in my ford f150 king ranch crew cab


Have you tried WD-40 in the door latch ? Some times the contacts in the door latch get gummed up, and the door switch stops working. A good soaking on the door latch, and close / open a few times and another soaking of WD-40 usually does the trick with the door latch switch.

All doors are shut, but it keeps dinging and the lights stay on?


common problem, you either have a defective door switch or gem moduale, first we can spray some wd-40 or any spray lube in the door latches of each door, and open and close the doors afterwards. most of the time they are dirty and stuck. If the problem still exists then we need to test each door ajar switch.

Door Ajar Warning Light Stays On


Our Ford Expedition & an Olds Silhouette Premier & both did the same thing. Someone online said to spray the inside door where the metal connects with the frame & sensors are there with WD-40. We did & it fixed the problem. Maybe this will work for yours.
