Mine did this. I went around to each door and sprayed a liberal amount of WD-40 in the latch, then open and closed each door about five times. It hasn't done it since. I think the switch inside was not moving freely.

SOURCE: 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.

You can pull the fuse that runs the locks, but they won't be power locks anymore.

I tiled my garage floor and now find that as soon as the door hits the floor it automatically opens again. What can i do. For the door to remain in the locked position. Thank you.


Your door will come back up when it senses anything that won't allow it to close all the way. There is an sensetivety adjustment on your opener. Adjust that until your door remains closed.

My overhead interior lights wont go off


Well, take it back to them as soon as possible. In the mean time check the light switch at the interior light which usually has three settings - "off" at all times - "on" when any door opens - "on" at all times. Try the different switch positions by getting in the car with all doors closed. One setting should switch the light on with the doors initially closed and will remain on even if the doors are then opened or closed. Second setting will be light off with doors are closed but light on when a any door is opened. Third will remain switched off even if any door is opened or closed. If the light can be switched off at one setting but remains on at the two other settings there is a malfunctioning micro switch at one doors. Look for the micro in each of the door frames (not door) and press each it a few times with your finger - if it is stuck it may come loose and work again. Try the switch's settings again. If it doesn't solve the problem either one of the door micros or the light switch may be defective and need to be replaced. Unfortunately this can only be determined by using a multimeter and should be done by a auto electrician or knowledgeable person.

I have a 1997 ford thunderbird lx and the other day when i went to close the door when i got out it,it wuldnt shut i slammed it a couple times n it still wouldnt shut i really need help because i cant...


Here's something that might help you. Look at the door theres a little hook that grabs the striker on car, hold the door handle "open" and move the hook to the open position try to close the door. That should solve your problem. Hope that helps you.

2002 pontiac grand prix - power door locks


I do believe the 3 beeps are telling you that you are about to lock your doors. Additonally that should signal you that have your keys in hand before you locks your keys inside the car. It's just an aural warning reminder that your doors are about to be locked.

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.

Everytime i lock my van the locks keep unlocking themselves


My Honda did this when the driver's door wasn't fully closed.
Does the inside light (dome light) turn on and off correctly when you open and close the driver's door?

If not, then the door latch might be loose or the door sensor switch might have failed (so it thinks the door is open even when it's closed securely)

1998 Taurus SE warning chime beeps as you get in the driver door


Hi John,

Had a similar problem with my Saturn. Door chime going all the time, the seat belts going up - down - up for no apparent reason.

Turned out to be the switch in the door jamb had become unseated. As it randomly made and broke contact, the cars computer thought the doors were opening and closing, then acted accordingly.

I remounted it with the help of a hot glue gun (plastic mount).

Hope this info helps with your problem.

Best regards
Mike
