SOURCE: 95 ford windstar door ajar

These switches are inside the doors attached to the door latch assembles.If you know some one with a scan tool you can go into the body computer and see which one is showing open when all the doors are closed. The most likly one is the drivers side door or the two in the rear gate. I've replaced those the most.If you don't want to replace them you can unplug them and the lights will go off. Hope this helps. If you need more info let me know> Thanks Dan

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.

SOURCE: 1997 ford exibition xlt my interior light and running board lights wont go off along wiith the door ajar light on dash board. please help

Take some WD40 and open the doors and spray a liberal amount into each of the door latches. Then open and close the doors firmly several times. This will work most of the time to unstick the ajar switches.

Door ajar light

I found that when I opened the right rear door several times I could get the problem to clear. Once I got the problem to clear I tired to keep any one from using that door. Once they forgot and opened that door again I was back in trouble again! I finely replaced the switch in that door and problem was corrected. Wish you luck this can drive you crazy..

Weel every time i try to start my car a " theft" light keeps flashing and my car wont start


The theft light blinking in your car is related to the door ajar switch not working correctly.Try spraying a liberal amount of lubricant directly into the door latches on your Taurus. The switch is in the door at the latch, and over time it gets gummed up and sticks. By lubricating the problem will be solved.

Thank you !!

My door ajar light stays on sometimes while driving along with my interior dome light on my 1997 Ford F-150. Also, the door ajar alarm will go off for a certain amount of time after i get out of my truck.

spray the door latch with WD - 40 on both doors then open and close multiple times. Sometimes they get stuck ond this help if they free up once a month should keep it away

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.

Doors ajar signal on instrumentation panel lights up and inside interior lights flash on and off.

Hey,try this. Get some WD40 or equivalent and spray it inside the door latch.Then open and close the door a few times. Do this on every door. Note which door the you sprayed when the door ajar light turns off because that will be the door latch you will have to replace. What happens is that the door ajar switch sticks.
