If we're talking about a pickup, then there must be a liftgate on the end of the truck bed.
If the computer says that the lift is "ajar", of course the liftgate is not up and locked in place. There must be a switch somewhere on the lift. Look for the switch.
Hope this helps.

Rear hatch keeps opens while driving...


Unless you have electrical diagnostic skills , I suggest you take this to the dealer ! The lift gate can be opened by operating the switch on the instrument panel. Battery voltage is supplied to the liftgate actuator through the body control module (BCM). The BCM will pulse the lift gate actuator when a release input is received through the key fob, or the instrument panel switch.
The body control module (BCM) receives an input from the liftgate ajar assembly. The ajar assembly is normally open when the liftgate is fully closed. When the liftgate is opened, the ajar assembly contacts close providing a path to ground. The driver information center (DIC) illuminates the rear access open message when the gate is open. The instrument panel cluster (IPC) receives a serial data message from the BCM indicating the liftgate ajar status. If this message is displayed and the vehicle speed is greater than 8 km/h (5 mph), a chime will sound.
It could be ajar switch is bad .

Hey Jeff, any U- codes stored in any modules ?
U1900 Missing CAN message(s) Door(s) ajar, PRNDL, 4x4, instrument cluster (IC), running boards, vehicle speed REFER to Section 418-00 . U2023 Invalid CAN message(s) Door(s) ajar, PRNDL, 4x4, instrument cluster (IC), running boards, vehicle speed REFER to Section 418-00 .
L4 CHECK THE VDM FOR DOOR AJAR INPUT
  • Key in ON position.
  • Monitor VDM door position status PID.
  • Close all doors, liftgate, liftgate glass and power running boards.
  • While observing the diagnostic tool, open and close one door.
  • Does the door status PID change between CLOSED and AJAR states?
When you open an close the driver door you have no PID change ,right ?

The door ajar input is an input to the Vehicle Security Module , then transmitted over the bus ! You'll have to find a diagram for the med. speed CAN data bus .

Had battery replaced at Auto Zone, now the "lift gate ajar" light stays on and the lift gate will not operate electrically. Any ideas? 2006 Mercury Monterey

What would cause the door ajar indicator light to remain on when car is off and doors are closed? This is also draining the battery.


Sounds like the wires to the door switch are shorted or the switch is damaged. You may have to remove a kick panel to access the wires.

When driving the vehicle the interior lights flash on and off the power locks flutter and the door ajar chimes.


Check the rear lift gate switch. Or it could be that one of the doors or the rear lift gate is out of adjustment and not closing tightly. Try closing all doors and lift gate then from the outside push in on the doors and see if they go in. If it is the doors , when you push on the one that is causing the problem the door ajar chime will stop .

Remove "Door Ajar" switch. Clean the switch and use a graphite type lubricant (I recommend "Dry-Slide") to lubricate the actuator on the switch. Reassemble the switch.

The switches are located inside the door panels, attached to the catch mechanism.

1) Remove interior door panel.

2) Using a T-27 Torx driver, remove the 3 bolts holding the catch in the door.
2a) The door ajar switch is the only part on the mechanism with the 2-wire harness.
2b) The switch is located at the rear catch for the sliding door.

3) Using a small flat screwdriver, gently lift the black tab on the catch mechanism and rotate the switch to remove it from the catch assembly.

4) Using a rag, clean the small round actuator and apply a small amount of graphite lubricant to the actuator and work the switch so it moves freely.

5) Reassemble the catch and the door.
