The door switches are built in the latches on each of the doors, they are pron to sticking, leaving the security module to beleive the door is open.
The simple fix is to spray a generous amount of WD40 on, in, and around the door latches, then opening and closing the door a few times. I would start with the passenger door as`this is likely the culprit. do the rest of the latches as a prevenitive measure.

Hope this is of some help.

    I would wait and see what happens with the door switches, there are a number of inputs, so I am not sure what to disconnect, perhaps the other tech that replied to you would have a better Idea.



    Thanx for your reply

Fix door ajar first. One of you door or liftgate switches is not closing all the way probably.

This may fix running board nut retracting, because it needs to know door is closed to fully retract. It is an unput to the running board module.

You have about 5 modules receiving input to operate the running boards.

The mirror not going down when backing up is a common problem. It was deleted in production for that reason. I would not bother with fixing it.

    2003 was a new model. I have worked with the mirror team on issues with that mirror.

    The feature I was referring to, is the feature that moves the mirrors down when the vehcile is in reverse. It's to help see if anyone is near vehicle, like on a tricycle. Either they stayed down or they would not go down. That was the feature we deleted.

    You seem to be saying it is always oriented up. Do you have memory mirrors?



    here is info for 2003 navigator:






    SECTION 501-09: Rear View Mirrors

    2003 Expedition/Navigator Workshop Manual

    DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION


    Rear View Mirrors

    The rear view mirror components consist of:


    • the interior mirror.
    • the auto dimming mirror (optional).
    • the exterior power folding mirror (optional).
    • the exterior mirror.
    • the exterior mirror control switch.
    • the memory set switch.

    The interior mirror:


    • is windshield mounted.
    • is a manual hand-set day/night or an optional auto dimming interior mirror.

    The auto dimming interior mirror has two features:


    • automatic dimming
    • normal view state automatic lock-in when the vehicle is placed in R (reverse)

    The automatic dimming feature darkens the interior mirror whenever the front ambient light sensor detects low outside light and glare reaches the light sensor (photo cell), which is located inside the interior mirror. The auto dimming interior mirror starts to return to the normal view once the glare goes away.

    The exterior mirrors:


    • are controlled by power controls on the LH front door trim panel.
    • are of a foldaway design.
    • may contain turn signal indicators.
    • may be heated when the heated back window glass is activated.
    • may have a programmable recall memory option.


    Driver Seat Module

    The power driver seat and power exterior mirrors are controlled by the driver seat module (DSM) only when the vehicle is equipped with the programmable/recall memory option.

    The DSM system consists of the following components:


    • driver seat module (DSM)
    • driver memory seat switch
    • memory mirror switch
    • memory set switch
    • front vertical seat motor
    • rear vertical seat motor
    • driver horizontal seat motor
    • LH heated memory mirror
    • RH heated memory mirror

    The DSM incorporates multiple functions into one module and offers diagnostics to easily locate and repair concerns affecting the subsystems that it controls.


    Power Exterior Mirror Operation

    The power exterior mirrors are controlled by the DSM and are operational all the time, whether the ignition switch is on or off. Using the power exterior mirror switch, the driver can adjust the driver and passenger exterior mirrors four ways.

    Up/Down Motion

    The power exterior mirrors can be moved up and down under motor control by actuating the power mirrors UP/DOWN switch. The DSM will power the driver or passenger mirror up/down motor until the switch is released or until the travel limit is reached.

    Left/Right Motion

    The power exterior mirrors can be moved left and right under motor control by actuating the power mirrors LEFT/RIGHT switch. The DSM will power the driver or passenger mirror left/right motor until the switch is released or until the travel limit is reached.

    Mirror Selection — Driver/Passenger

    The driver can select the driver or passenger mirror to be adjusted by setting the mirror select switch to the appropriate position.

    Turn Signal Mirror

    The exterior mirror may be equipped with a mirror-mounted turn signal assembly. For Diagnosis and Testing, refer to Section 417-01 .

    Power Folding Mirrors

    The power folding exterior mirrors are controlled by the power folding mirror switch. The power folding mirror switch has power at all times.


    Memory Power Exterior Rear View Mirror Operation

    The memory power exterior mirrors feature allows the driver to program personalized mirror positions that can be recalled using the memory switches or remote transmitter. There are three memory settings possible. The power driver seat positions are also stored, and recalled with the memory exterior mirrors positions

      • Check to make sure the program card is correctly installed.


      • Check the connections to the vehicle.


      • Check the ignition switch position.


    1. If the diagnostic tool still does not communicate with the vehicle, refer to the diagnostic tool manual.


    1. Carry out the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the diagnostic tool responds with:

      • CKT914, CKT915 or CKT 70 = ALL ECUS NO RESP/NOT EQUIP, refer to Section 418-00 .


      • NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for DSM, go to Section 419-10 .


      • SYSTEM PASSED for the DSM, retrieve and record the continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), erase the continuous DTCs and carry out self test diagnostics for the DSM.


    1. If the DTCs retrieved are related to the concern, go to DSM Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index.


    1. If DTCs are retrieved that are not found in the following DSM Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index, refer to the master DSM Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index in Section 419-10 .


    1. If no DTCs related to the concern are retrieved, proceed to the Symptom Chart.

SOURCE: 2003 lincoln navigator running board stay out on

You probably have a bad door switch that is located in the door latch.If the vehicle tells you which door is ajar I would try a good penetrating oil first and if not replace that door latch.It will take a bit of working the latch before it will start to work if thats all it is so have some patients with it.

My suggestion to you and all the other folks leaving questions on this board about collapsed air suspension systems in luxury cars is to fix that one by replacing it with a real spring and shock system which you can buy at www.strutmasters.com if it is economically feasible, then sell it and avoid air suspensions systems like the plague. There are legions of old 70s Citroens still sitting idle 30 years later on collapsed air suspensions systems in garages and barns all over the country which cars the buyers can't let go because they cost so damn much. Get a coleman air mattress and use it every day, see how long it really lasts.

Passenger side running board


I had the same problem with my Excirsion. Turns out it was the plug just inside the body where the running board lights connect. If it gets dirty, it causes intermittent contact. If you haven't checked this, that would be my first action. I bet the Navigator has the same type of plug there as the Excursion.
