You can use WD-40, open door and spray directly into latch on door about 5 seconds to make sure you get plenty into latch to reach door ajar switch at bottom of latch,pull up on outside handle and use small screwdriver and work latch back and forth several times to work WD_40 into latch this should solve your problem,GOOD LUCK!

check the door light switch and how it is affected by closing opening of door. look at what happens at the contact point.
It may be something mechanical, or something electronic/electrical
empirical testing should reveal the answer

I have a 1999 300m the interior lights remain on,


The sensor switch in the door latch is dirty or may have been damaged. Thoroughly spray the door switches with a cleaning spray like carb cleaner. Then give it some canned air to blow out any remaining dirt. Then use a spray lubricant like WD40. After that open and close the door a few times and see if the light goes off when you close the door. If this doesnt work you'll need to take off the door panels to get a better view.

Door Ajar message comes up even when all of the stores are shut. Interior Lights and Lights on side view mirrors stay on. Lights can be shut off but the Door Ajdar message remains on.


I have this same problem. A mechanic friend told me that basically the grease they use to grease the door latches cause a sensor to think the door is open. He said to buy something thtat will break up this stuck grease, but also has lubricating effects. I forgot what he told me to buy though.

DONT KNOW HOW TO FIX A FEW PROBLEMS


When my "door ajar" light was on it was because the liftgate sensors (switches) indicated that the gate was open, even thought it wasn't. I took off the plastic trim, and took out the sensors - but that isn't necessary. Just soak with the switches with silicone spray, and see if that helps. There is one on each side of the liftgate - I believe both must indicate "closed" for the light to go off.

I have gotten replacement motors at Checkers for both driver and passenger doors - so now I have lifetime replacement motors.. The first time you replace them, a little drilling is needed on the door sheet metal, but it will not show up once the trim is reinstalled. This repair is a little involved, but well within the capability of a novice mechanic.

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 .

Door ajar alarm


The doorlach pin is faulty.
On newer vehicles it is inside the door on the locking mechanism.
It is stuck in the closed position, or has become dislodged.
Refer to your mechanic for repair.

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 light still on which leaves interior lights constantly


This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.
