I have a 2001 ford mustang v-6 that the dome light will not go out when the doors are closed and the key is out ?


My 02 Mustang's light was still on because of the door ajar button. Open the door look at the latch. The latch that goes up and down has a door ajar button hiding near this. It can be hidden by a rubber covering on the side of it. Or you can take the door inner door cover off and try to squirt some oil into the door ajar. You can try oiling it and work it back and forth. Also on the the latches sometimes they dip them in plastic. Mine was loose and would not let the door shut properly. So that was another problem with the light being on. I cut off the pieces that were jamming the latch up.

Why does my interior lights stay on when I get out of my 2003 ford explorer and why does my door ajar stay on when all doors are shut


Check the switch in your driver's door jamb. It will be a small button that pushes in when the door closes, or else a small plastic lever that does the same thing. If this is broken, it will complete the circuit and make your interior and seat-belt lights go on, as if you door is open.

Thought door was frozen shut on 96 grand am se so pulled it open and now it won't close latch not engaged and door lines up but won't stay latched shut....


The latch may already be latched like it is closed. You can take a screw driver and put it.. where the latch engages Slightly pry outward agianst the latch while pulling on the door handle. That should release the latch. If you continue to have the problem than the latch will have to be replaced because there is a plastic piece that may be worn out.You will have to remove the door panel to replace the latch. They sell a book on that car that will explain how to remove the door handle(at O'rielly).

After a car accident the front passenger door on a 1996 Ford Taurus will not shut and will only stay "closed" when tied or bungied. I need to know if the entire door needs to be replaced or if it can be...


if there is damage to the door, I would go ahead and replace it, because it could either be the latch broke, or the door needs to be adjusted. If the latch is broken then it has to be replaced, if it just needs adjustment, then you could do that without replacing the door, although if you are going to go through the trouble you might as well replace it anyway.

Spray lubricant in the driver's and passenger door latches. One of the switches in the latch are sticking. Open and close the door several times to free up the switch.
