3 Step Cleaning & LubeThis is a common problem and is caused by the door switch plunger sticking (due to dirt, other elements or rust). This can often be corrected by performing the following:
1. Thoroughly spray the door switches (on each door) with:

  • Cleaning spray - clear the sludge out of the mechanism - electronic contact cleaner, carb, brake, etc

  • Air, canned or even better, from a compressor

  • Spray lubricant - a dry lube (best), silicone spray, WD-40 or similar
2. Open and close each door several times to work the lube into the mechanism
This is usually sufficient to clean the electrical & plunger mechanism inside the door switch.
If this doesn't work, you could remove the door panel and do the spray treatment from the inside also.

This approach works for most, but the switch may have to come out for repair (see Windstar "Related Question" below), or replacement.

Alarm won't work the roof door do not light on accord 1994


Check the dome light override switch lockated on the dome light itself, then check the fuse for "CTSY Lights" and finally, check the ground attachment by removing the lens cover of the dome (roof) light, an removing the plastic housing of the dome light by either removing a screw, or simply prying on the sides of the plastic housing, you should see a wire screwed into the roof metal.

Have a 04 super cab ranger tremor and when i turn the dome light and the door ajar light comes on how can i fix that


turn off the dome light.


the door opens, it turns on the dome light, so the wire that goes from the door switch gets powered up and makes your dome light come on. if your door is closed, and you turn on the dome light, the same wire gets power and is actually sending power to your light bulb on the dash.
just ignore it , or get a diode and put it on the correct wire, and it wont allow the electricity to flow back towards the light bulb when you put the dome light on.

Dome lights


You don't have the dome switch in the on postion do you? If not, the headlight/dome switch may be the problem. It's very seldom that the door pressure switch is the cause of this problem.
