Question about 2003 Lincoln Town Car

2003 LINCOLN TOWNCAR DOOR AJAR LIGHT STAYS ON WHEN DOORS CLOSE

The door ajar warning light on panel stays on when all doors are closed. Not only does the warning stay on and the light the alarm beeper goes off every minute. It's driving me crazy! I tried the WD 40 and the BP Blaster and nothing. Is changing the door ajar switch the only way to repair? I took it to the Lincoln dealer and the part is $8.00 but the repair is $228.00/hour minimum for repair. What a rip off. Any other suggestion?

    Thanks for your suggestion. I got the switches changed and still the door ajar is at it again. Now I am told it might be the Driver's Door module. Cost $360 part only. Their next guess is the Light Control Module. Cost $560 part only. I don't have the money for either. Now the horn is going off in the middle of the night. I have to run and grab the keys and cancel the horn before the neighbors get upset. Last night it went off three times. Finally I had to leave the doors in unlock mode. Hopefully the car will not get stolen.

Yes i agree with ripoff, If you are unable to do it yourself , then I suggest you go to a regular shop, and they should replace it with minimal cost, buy the part for eight dollars and bring it with you to the shop so that all you have to pay is labor, if it is really easy like i suspect you may not be charged at all, or even ask one of the guys if you give them a couple of bucks will they switch it real quick.
hey, I would do it..

I have a 2003 ford tauraus and when i start the car my interior light stays on and the door ajar pops on with all the doors closed and car running and then it does it after i get out the car it goes out...


That is because the switch is faulty and is not operating when the door is closed.

Hence the interior light stays on(unless you switch it off manually) and the warning system thinks the door is still open because the switch has not been activated and therefore the open door warning appears.

Hence you need to have the door operated switch replaced.

Hello. I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. The rear door/hatch no longer stays closed tight enough, so the door ajar light flickers on and off. As a result, my alarm goes off at random times. Could...


The better solution is to fix the hatch so it closes tightly. The latch hooks on to an adjustable loop. The hatch closes on to the rubber seal: if this is damaged, fix or replace. There may be some adjustable rubber bump stops as well. Lastly, check that the door ajar sensor is not loose.

Door adjar warning light stays on. Dome and cargo light stays on.


You need to remove the door ajar sensors from the doors and clean and lube them. You must remove the interior door panel then remove the door latch. Then twist the switch out of the latch to work on it.

2001 Sequoia, door ajar light goes off, but dome light stays on. Door ajar light comes on with slight pressure against closed door. Can replacing the door jam switch solve this problem? Why would the door...


To temporarily solve the light problem, I taped a washer to the inside of the door where the door hits the plunger on the light switch. A permanent solution would be to drill a hole in the door at this spot and put a self taping screw in that will trigger the switch sooner. I figured out the reason the dome light stayed on is due to the courtesy light timer and the lights would have eventually gone off.

switches are in the latch and you will have to start by turning the ignition key to on and then open and close each door. when you get to the door that doesn't make a chime sound when opened or closed. that is the door with the latch problem. you will need to replace the switch for that latch

Door ajar alarm


I had this same problem. I was able to fix it by tightening all of the screws in the door and where the door closes. There is a small rubber piece that fits over a button. When the button is pressed, the door alarm will stop. For me, it was just taking off the metal plate and re-adjusting the rubber piece and then tighten those screws so the plate was flush against the door frame. Good luck!
