I had the same problem. Spray WD-40 (with the sprayer extender) into the latch of the doors very liberally. Open and close doors a few times. Should resolve issue.

I have a 2002 Ford Expedition and the running board lights and the door ajar light on my dash does not shut off and it's killing my battery what should I do I've closed all the doors tightly and they still...


Check the door switches, you may have one that's shorted. If they are all OK, the BCM is causing the problem. Easiest and cheapest solution is to remove the bulbs from the lights that are always on. It means they will not operate and if you don't feel safe at night without them, its not an option for you, If it doesn't bother you one way or the other, remove the bulbs. This will stop your battery from draining, but the door ajar light on the dash will stay on all the time. If it bothers you, cover it up!

What would cause the door ajar indicator light to remain on when car is off and doors are closed? This is also draining the battery.


Sounds like the wires to the door switch are shorted or the switch is damaged. You may have to remove a kick panel to access the wires.

We have a trans sport se 1994 model. A light that looks like a miniature version of the van shows up on left side of dash near where the tail gate ajar warning would show up. The battery has run completely...


A quick guess is that one of the power sliding doors is not closing properly or the switch for that door is broken. A broken door switch would leave the door motor or interior lights on continuously and drain the battery. Draining the battery more than a few times would ruin it. Also check the front door switches for broken or missing actuators - the door ajar icon looks similar to the sliding door open icon.

I tried to download an owner's manual so I could be sure I was interpreting your dashboard icon correctly, but the oldest one available is for 1999, so my information may not be accurate.

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.

My trucks computer tells me there's a door ajar


check each door jamb button (can't think of the correct term). close all doors except one... push the button manually... does the interior light go off... if it does move on to the next door. that will narrow down where the problem is... or it should. it also could be the relay for the interior lights located on the fuse panel under the dash.

Door ajar light still on which leaves interior lights constantly


This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.

Sliding door on 98 windstar- says it is ajar when door is closed


must be a break in the wiring somewhere and will not be a quick task to check unfortunately, sorry but you will probably need auto electrician unless you feel up to checking it all your self if so check the contacts with an auto probe to see where youhave feeds and where you have earths then check others till you see a break in the pattern or better still if you have or can get wiring diagram then follow it through.
