SOURCE: door ajar light and chime come on while driving -

The switch on the door is going out. however the switch on that vehicle is located within the door latch. It is an easy repair at a shop. It is most likely on the driver's door because that is the most used door in the vehicle. You may also want to check the latch on the rear window because it will tell you the door is open when they are all closed. The switch malfunctioning will also lead to the lights staying on and therfore running down the battery. With a draw off the battery like that and the constant charging the alternator must do, the battery and the alternator will not last as long if you don't fix the problem with the switch.

SOURCE: 03 ford expedition interior lights stay on and door ajar reads

This is a very common problem with Fords. I have one that was doing this as well. What works for most people is pretty much what you have tried - spraying inside the latch all over with WD40 Until it's coming out the bottom of the door. If this fails to work, the switch probably needs replaced. The switch is located inside the door near the latch. It should be pretty easy to find once you have the door panel off. Look for the wires leading to it. A new switch is usually very inexpensive, but may have to be purchased through your local Ford dealer. If you're not comfortable taking the door panel off, a mechanic should be able to do this repair for you in less than an hour of shop time.

SOURCE: Door ajar message goes on and off even if doors are closed

Your door closed switch may be failing. I seem to remember that it might be part of the door latch, otherwise it will be a button in the door jamb area. You need to check the switches with a meter.

Keeps saying door ajar and already skirted with wd 40


The door ajar switch is the problem and it is inside the door and is sealed, so WD40 will not work, you must remove the door panel and the rear glass run channel and then replace the door ajar micro switch at the rear of the door latch, it has a 2 wire connector to it

Try spraying wd40 down each door latch for a while and open and close the doors a few times then spray some spray grease in there that should work. As for the window switch it should just pop up with a small screwdriver and a little pressure. There should just be clips holding it in and the wires on the bottom.

All doors are closed, including rear lift gate, but "door ajar" warning is displayed on info center. interior lights stay on when driving and when parked and key removed.


It could be a bad door ajar switch on the tailgate. You would have to put a scanner on it to see which door the computer tells you is grounded.

Door Ajar light


youve got a bad door ajar switch in one of the doors- next time it's on try slamming each door one by one til it goes out, when it goes out- that is the door that has the bad switch in it. spraying penetrating oil (NOT WD-40!) on the door latch may help-hope this helps and good luck
