Question about Suzuki Grand Vitara
When driving, our interior lights that normally come on when the doors are open keep flickering on and off usually over uneven road. At the same time the warning sign comes on the dashboard saying that a door is open. They are not, all doors are shut firmly and have even been locked. Any ideas?
Open each door (one at a time) with the car running and parked.
Look for the small contact switch that tells the car the door is open/shut.
See image for location.
Press that switch in firmly and watch the dash to see if the light comes on while you are pressing.
This will tell you which one of the switches is bad.

It is likelythat one of the door switches are losing solid contact and will need replaced.

a door ajar switch is the problem. It's not hard to fix just a little tricky. you can do either do 2 things get it scanned and it shoule tell you what door switch is giving the problem. or save some money and one by on unplug the switches and jump the switch until the light goes out....and then changes that switch

spray your door lock with dw40. sounds like the sensor in your door frame is not making correct contact. look on your door frame. all door frames. and see if you can spot any torn rubber or anything that could cause the sensor to not correctly close

I sprayed WD40 in the handle opening and moved it up and down a few times and sprayed some in the latch and it went away.

Do not panic but instead consider calling a dealer to avoid making any mistakes here.
