Hello Jerry Nelson,

Door ajar light... typically means "a door is ajar"

Assuming the car is undamaged, no dents, bent doors or bullet holes: you have a wiring fault.

You should go around your vehicle and inspect each door, find the switch... With all the other doors closed ... operate & release the switches in sequence... until you run out of switches... and find NOTHING UNTOWARD.

See if you can remove the switches and disconnect the wire...
If you still have found nothing... restore EVERYTHING to it's original condition.

Most of these "switches" will operate for the full life-cycle of the vehicle. If you cannot figure out which door is causing your problem... TAKE YOUR CAR to a highly recommended
MECHANIC... and let then find the electric issue.

Popular USA market vehicle CIRCUIT Drawings (and TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETINS) can be found on the BBB Industries website (see below: registration required).

Hope this helps.

Voltage draw when off


how are you cking for draw? how long before batt dies ,1 day 2 ,3 or more? there are normal amounts of draw in all late model cars,and with a door open you will have different levels of draw for a couple of min after key is removed and doors fully closed,see if door ajar light stays on ,ford switches in the door lock mechs get sticky,just soak with wd40 and work all doors a few times ,they usually come back to life

Ford Taurus SE 1999. Dome Light - Door Ajar indicator problem. This is an intermittent problem, hence far more difficult to isolate. OK. I will be thorough in describing this "set of problems" as I do...


i must say that i feel your pain with this,, my door ajar light does the same thing but my dome light doesn't come on when the doors are open, i have to flick the switch on the dome light to make it come on. In my opion and i stress my opion it saounds like a issue with the body controller, im not sure what ford calls it but it controls all the body functions, i dont think the low coolant light is connected to the body contoller but i dont know this for sure, i think that light is controlled bny the engine ecm. some times a dealer can connect to the body controller and see if there are any fault codes for circuits that it controls and or monitors, also they can reflash or update the configeration and or calibration level cause ford release's fixes for issues all the time, same theory works for any control module on a vehicle. i dont think any of the auto parts stores have the right program to connect to bofy controlers but i could be wrong, worth looking into. i only put up with mine cause i use it as a beater, if you are worried about your dome light staying on and drianing your battery then you could pull out or disconnect the dome lights for the time being, its not a fix but just a band-aid.

Try spraying WD40 directly into the door latches and opening and closing the doors several times. Usually this will free a sticking door ajar switch.
