Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

97 lincoln continental says door is ajar.

My 97 lincoln continental keeps saying the door is ajar when all four are obviously closed. Now the interior lights won't turn off and I'd really like to have battery power to start my car in the morning.

The door switches are part of the door latch, the easiest way to remedy this is to spray liberal amounts of WD40 into each latch and open and close the each door a few times, this should loosen up the latch and solve your problem.

Hope this helps.

spray your door lock with dw40. sounds like the sensor in your door frame is not making correct contact. look on your door frame. all door frames. and see if you can spot any torn rubber or anything that could cause the sensor to not correctly close

one of the door switches might be getting a bad connection. sometimes they can wear out after years of use. you can pull the swithes out and use an ohm meter to see which one is not working.

It is a sticky sensor in the door latch mechanism. Spray it w/ WD-40 and follow up with a dose of silicone spray. Open/close doors several times and it should be ok. If you have a problem with 1 door the other 3 are sure to follow---DO THIS TO ALL 4 DOORS!!!!!!!!!
