Spray the latch assembly on all doors with WD-40. Open and close all doors multiple times.
THIS IS WHAT THE DEALER MECH WILL DO.
tech note it is a common problem for the door switch to get sticky. keep them clean.

THERE ARE 6 DOOR AJAR SWITCHES IN THIS CAR, THEY ARE ON THE DOOR LATCH ASSEMBLY INSIDE THE DOOR AND 2 ON THE TAILGATE LEFT AND RIGHT LATCHES, IN ORDER TO LOCATE THE BAD SWITCH HAVE THE FORD DEALER HOOK UP A SPECIAL SCAN TOOL AND THEY CAN ID WHICH ONE IS STICKING AND CAUSING YOUR PROBLEM, OTHERWISE IT IS HIT AND MISS AND AND ALL DAY JOB.

Keeps saying door ajar and already skirted with wd 40


The door ajar switch is the problem and it is inside the door and is sealed, so WD40 will not work, you must remove the door panel and the rear glass run channel and then replace the door ajar micro switch at the rear of the door latch, it has a 2 wire connector to it

My door ajar light is on but all doors are closed and the overhead lights keep going on and off


You have a bad door ajar switch on one of the doors. It is shorting out and causing the lights to flicker and the door ajar light to stay on.

Car alarm went off reset went off again within 3 min had tomanual lock , dome light on while driving


it sounds like you have a door open that is why the light is on. it may not be a actual open door but a faulty door ajar switch. that would explain why the alarm keeps going off. i would start by opening and shutting all doors includingthe hood and hatch.
if that does not fix it-a gm dealer with a tech 2 scanner should be able to located which door ajar switch is bad.
