Front interior light will not go off when i close any of my doors on my 2006 kia sorento xe

Possible that one of the door switch is faulty and so is open. You will need to check one by one , the switches, to confirm this as the open switch determines the light to be ON and makes you think that all the door swithces are faulty.

How do i slove my door ajar problem

Try spraying wd40 into each door latch. Do it one at a time then open and close the door about a dozen times spray some more in there after about 6 open and closes. Do this with each door and even the hatch. This should clear ya right up.

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.

Door ajar alarm

I had this same problem. I was able to fix it by tightening all of the screws in the door and where the door closes. There is a small rubber piece that fits over a button. When the button is pressed, the door alarm will stop. For me, it was just taking off the metal plate and re-adjusting the rubber piece and then tighten those screws so the plate was flush against the door frame. Good luck!
