SOURCE: 2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed

I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.

4x4 97 jimmy... lots going on, tempature keeps going way up when it happens it will blow cold air, check gage light keeps going on, there is a noise like a hampster is on its wheel squeeky, wheel feels...

The first thing to check Amy is your coolant level under the hood. the temp is going up because of low coolant, the loss of heat is because its too low to circulate. with the engine running ,lift the hood and see if your sound is coming from a water pump or a pulley. The last thing is your dome light, it will be a door switch. try your passenger door and see if your light comes on.

Dome light and key in ignition tone won't quit.

Yes, I would lean toward a stuck drivers door latch. Your door open switch is located in the latch itself and the ding is a reminder your key is in the ignition so you don't lock them in the vehicle when you lock the door. even though your door is shut, the truck still thinks it is open. sometimes spraying the latch with some WD-40 will get it freed up and working again, but a new latch might be in your future.

How do you get the interior lights to come on when a door is open

Hi, viewer. The interior light is powered and controlled by the body control module or BCM. However, there is an on/off button beside the main headlight switch that overrides the interior lighting function. If this button is off, interior lights will not come on regardless of any door being closed or opened.

If this button is on, interior lights will come on whenever a door is opened. If you close all doors, and if the driver door is the last to be closed, the interior lights will stay on for about 30 sec and then the lights goes off automatically. In case you left any door opened too long, the BCM has an internal timer that will shut off the interior lights automatically when it detects that a door is still opened and the allowable time has elapsed. The BCM is programmed this way to protect the battery circuit and functions. : )

Jimmy electrical burning.

The wire has rubbed somewhere and is shorted to ground. Replace the wire from the door switch to the light, replace the fuse with one of the correct amperage and it should work. Disconnect the battery while you are replacing the wire.

Courtesy lights (ceiling and door panel lights) will shut off if ignition is started but after shut off and I open and close either door the interior lights stay on long after the 20 second timer is...

Some lights do that on my chrysler they'll stay on for up to a minute that shouldn't kill your battery. As long as they go off you should be ok
