The problem is a dirty switch. use a can of wd-40 or equivalent and spray the door latch heavily. Next hold up on the door handle and work the latching mechanism back and forth really fast. Next repeat the process 2 or 3 times. It only takes a few minutes and your door latch sensor will be working like new again.

SOURCE: where is the door switch? mine acts like the door isnt closeing and the interior light wont go off

I could not find this switch either, It is actually located in the door latch on the door jam. Switch is somewhere inside. Took my truck to mazda dealer and had it replaced. Anoying problem.

There is a grounding problem with your door switches. You will have to have it traced to find the exact cause. In the meantime you can try pulling the door plunger switches on each door jam. Check for corrosion, clean and reinstall.

Door ajar light keeps coming on but doors are shut tight/2000 dodge caravan


with car in park and emergency brake applied, engine running, all doors closed on flat, level surface: sit behind the wheel, watching illuminated door-ajar light -- have a friend push one each door (right at the door-jam edge) hard enough to rock the vehicle, but not hard enough to dent the doors. if the light filckers off, that door is where your problem is...--> check the functionality of the switch/button in the door jam that plunges in when the door is closed. It may need to be replaced or may just need a spacer added between the switch plunger tip & the part of the door that pushes it in.

My car keep showing "door ajar" all the doors be


One of the doors is probably not shutting tight enough. When the light is on and all doors are closed, have someone walk around the car and push in on each door. When the light goes out, that is the door that needs adjusting. Adjust the lock so that the door closes tighter. Let me know if you have questions.

My power locks keep locking and unlocking by them selves this is followed by the dome lights flicking on / off and the door ajar warning turning on / off as well what could be causing this? how do i fix...


one of your doors is not closing tightly. with the door ajar light on and all doors closed, have someone walk around the car and push in on each dorr to see which one puts the light out. Then adjust the lock on that door so it holds the door in tighter. Let me know if this doesn't solve it or if you have questions.

Ajar door when all doors are closed. when i driving and come to a complete stop my interior lights come on. It reads as door (s).


There is a contact switch on each door frame near the hinge. When a door is closed this opens the circuit cutting electrical supply from the door ajar warning light and the interior lighting circuit. Check the contact switch for the door that seems to be giving a problem and compare this to the opposite door that is working OK. Once you have an idea as to how the 'good' one is working you should be able to identify the reason for the bad one not working. These switches are positioned to fairly tight tolerances and so a shift in a worn door hinge, especially as the weight of the door is transferred forwards as you come to a stop, might be enough to allow the light to come on. It may be that fitting a spacer, a piece of card, under the switch mountings will be enough to correct for this slight movement.

Door ajar light stays lit when all doors are shut 2005 GMC Canyon


Hi,
This seems that either of the door switches is/are faulty. Try pushing the switches fully on each plunger switch on each door individually, keeping the other doors closed while you do. See if one of them causes the light to go out. If you do find one turns the light off, it's an adjustment problem with the plunger switch. May still need to be replaced if it won't depress enough with the door closing to turn off.Let us know if you were looking for something more else please accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

My liftgate ajar warning light comes on after car is started. however liftgate is latched. any ideas?


try rolling down a window or leaving a door open, shut liftgate hard. see if it still shows liftgate ajar. on my explorer the seals in door and windows shut so tightly that it was almost impossible to get the gate closed completely with doors closed and windows up.

if this doesn't help then you might need a new switch on it.

Interior lights won't come on when the doors are open.


there is a timer on the interior lights to turn off after 20 minutes.
one of your door switches are bad,and it tells the computer that a door is open and the lights are turned off,that makes sense.
a way to test this is to undo the battery for a minute. then see if the interior lights come on. one of the door switches is bad

Door ajar dash trouble and dome light stays on even if all doors


The door sensors will need to be replaced. A screws can be removed and then a wire can be taken of and you then can replace the switch.
