SOURCE: dead battery, door ajar lights stay on, is seners

Make sure all doors and trunk are properly closed. If light still stays on, you'll need to track down which door switch is causing the problem. Also make sure the interior light switch on the light controller is switched off.

SOURCE: My door ajar lights wont turn off.

I do not think it has anything to do with the door. I think you should put a scan tool on it and see what you pull for codes.
Please let me know.

-Just disconnect the wire that hook up to the switch.
(Only on the effect door)
-Or remove the switch and if you can put a spacer to bring the swtich
to the outside little more. That will solve the problem.

What causes the dome light not to come on when you open the drivers door but works on the other doors on a 2001 Suzuki grand vitara


Could be the button switch on the drivers side door jamb, check see if it is stuck, if you have a door ajar light this won't come on with the door open either because the switch is pushed in, which is another indication it's not working. try pushing it in by hand and see if it does anything, It should push in and when released pop back out.

Door ajar light and buzzer stays on when I'm driving my 2006 ford focus


This problem is caused by one of the door ajar sensing switches being defective, it is a common fault in Many Ford cars and light trucks. Each door has a switch and two at the tail gate door. The switches are attached to the side of the door latch and very hard to replace, since you would most likely have to detrim at least two doors to find the bad switch the most prudent thing to do is have the dealer scan the door ajar waring system, the scan will indicate exactly which switch has the problem.

I have 1997 ford taurus gl the ajar door light will not go off. it apperantly stays on after the car is turn off this draing the power on the battery and i then ai have s dead battery


you have two options. You can use a higher end scan tool to scan the GEM module to see what door ajar switch is stuck. You can then focus you attention on that door.

Option two is remove all four door panels and unplug the door ajar switch (starting on the drivers front which is the most common) and see which one finally turns off the door ajar switch.

You could also try this. Open the drivers front door. Liberally spray the latch (the part on the door that holds the door shut) with brake cleaner. Once it has dried liberally spray the area with a penetrating lube (seafoam Deep Creep is one of my favorites). Do be afraid to spray both in every nook and cranny you possible can in the latch opening. Once lubricated open and close the door several times then check to see if the door ajar light goes out. Don't be afraid to try this several times.

Ford Taurus SE 1999. Dome Light - Door Ajar indicator problem. This is an intermittent problem, hence far more difficult to isolate. OK. I will be thorough in describing this "set of problems" as I do...


i must say that i feel your pain with this,, my door ajar light does the same thing but my dome light doesn't come on when the doors are open, i have to flick the switch on the dome light to make it come on. In my opion and i stress my opion it saounds like a issue with the body controller, im not sure what ford calls it but it controls all the body functions, i dont think the low coolant light is connected to the body contoller but i dont know this for sure, i think that light is controlled bny the engine ecm. some times a dealer can connect to the body controller and see if there are any fault codes for circuits that it controls and or monitors, also they can reflash or update the configeration and or calibration level cause ford release's fixes for issues all the time, same theory works for any control module on a vehicle. i dont think any of the auto parts stores have the right program to connect to bofy controlers but i could be wrong, worth looking into. i only put up with mine cause i use it as a beater, if you are worried about your dome light staying on and drianing your battery then you could pull out or disconnect the dome lights for the time being, its not a fix but just a band-aid.

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.

Door ajar indicator stays on


you may just need to adjust your door jams they may not be closing properly, the other thing you can try is opening one door at a time and putting your finger on the switch usually in the lower l/h corner of b piller and see if the light goes off if not this may be the problem and replace the switch
