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.

WD 40 or CRC WHITE LITHIUM GREASE SPRAY in each latch for the truck/car and open and close doors. Repeat and this should solve 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
