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.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Explorer Limited. Door

I had the exact same problem with my 2003 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer. Each time I pressed the rear defrost button, the door adjar light came on. The problem was a broken ground wire in the wiring harness that ran into the drivers side door. Pull the rubber boot back on the wiring harness between the drivers door and and body and look for broken wires. There are a lot of wires so you will have to look very close. I inserted a 1 1/2 inch wire splice to reconnect the black wire and everything now works fine. This splice also fixed the problem with the drivers side- side view mirror light. I have researched and discovered that many Explorers have this problem.

Interior Lights - Check door ajar switch, its possible that go to bad.
Door Lock - Check ground connections and test switch.

Dorr ajar light is on


this problem is caused by a sticking door ajar sensing micro switch inside the door on the door latch, it is a twist in switch, in your car there are 4 switches, one for each side door and 2 for the hatch, since replacing them is labor intensive have the local Ford dealer scan the system, the scanner can see which particular switch is causing the light to stay on.

Door ajar light stays on


A door ajar switch is probably bad but some suggestions say to open the door spray the latches with some penetrating oil open and shut the doors a few times.Sometimes this method does work temporarily. The best solution would be to hook up a scan tool that is capable of determining which door it views as being ajar.Some of these models have just a door ajar switch attached to the the door latch mechanism others may require the door latch to be replaced.

I have a 2003 ford explorer and the door ajar light won't go out.


each door has a miniature switch (called the door ajar switch) located on the door latch assembly inside the door, there are 6 of them in a four door, one for each door and two for the rear hatch, any one of them can cause this problem and it is about 1 hour to rpelace one switch, ford has a scanner that can the system and ID exactly which switch is bad, that is the only way to do this without tearing the whole truck apart.
