    you need to locate the "door ajar " switch, each door has one. It probably needs to be replaced or adjusted.

Take some WD40 and open the doors and spray a liberal amount into each of the door latches. Then open and close the doors firmly several times. This will work most of the time to unstick the ajar switches.

Are they on on both sides or just one? It may be the switch inside the drivers side door. The switch is part of the door latch assembly. The other things could be a broken wire in the door jam or the timer module is defective.

    That would be funny. It didn't even occur to me to even suggest that, thanks.

Door ajar idiot light wont go out and bells is going off on a 1997 ford windstar minivan. which fuse do i pull thanks no manual


Sound like one of the door jamb switches is bad. Try taking a pencil or screw driver and pushing in on each door switch. Push the switch beyond the "flush" point to see if the switch is just not fully closing.

Door ajar light in dash is on along with interior lights


the door switches for that year explorer are actually found inside the door panels, built into the door latch. they are a real pain to change out. the only way really to determine which door it is (it could also be the rear hatch) is to use a scan tool to view door ajar data, then change that one switch.
