Question about Ford Expedition
First find out what door is making that light come on...you can test out each door by pushing the black switch that is located in the door jam area...the switch is covered by a little piece of black rubber..With all of the doors closed (have one person look at the instrument cluster) and the other person open each door and then press that black switch...when all of the doors have been checked you will find that one of the doors may have a bad switch and this is causing the light to come on the dash..use some WD-40 and soak all of the door latch and door jam/switch area...the faulty switch may just need some lubrication to bring it back to life....if the switch still does not work then look online for a replacement or search your local junkyard for the correct replacement

There is a problem with the door switch the door is not pushing the switch in completely. Here is what you do close all the doors, then you open them one at a time with all the other still closed. start with the drivers door. open and look for the pin with that the door touches when you close its on the bottom close to the back of the driver's seat it has a black rubber covering it. Press with your thumb in and see if light goes out. Check all other doors in the same way you will see which door switch is not being pressed in completely when door closes. If you find it a quick fix is to pad the area on the door that makes contact with the switch to push it in, for example you can use one of those round sticky cushions that you use on the metal chair legs to prevent them from scratching your wood floor.

I had the same problem on my '97 Expedition. Start by finding out which door is showing as open. To do this close all the doors then open each door one at a time. When you hear the tell-tale "ding" you'll know that door is okay, and move on to the next. When you find the "bad" door, spray a little WD40 into the latch, that should free up the the stuck sensor. Don't forget to check the back lift and window if you've got them.
