We have a 2010 Lexus GX460 and the door ajar light won't go off. The chime stays on and we had to manually turn off the dome light. Even with the engine off the light stays on the dashboard.

The sensor inside the door latch is probably stuck. Try spraying some WD40 or similar into the door latch mechanism. Open and close the door a few times. Give it some time to soak in. If that doesn't work, you will need to have the sensor checked by a pro.

How can I find out which door has the bad door ajar sensor?

Might try closing all doors, then open one at a time and manually depress the switches. Feel them for "click" feeling and see if by depressing fully you can make the light go out. Remember also that you have a switch which turns the lights to on even with all doors closed. And also, the driver's door sees the most use so that switch is the most likely to fail, plus those hinges wear causing the door to not close as well.

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.

1999 mercury sable wagon door ajar idiot light stays on and in turn dome light stays on where is the switch if that is the problem

It's probably one of the switches in the doors. Have someone walk around the car and push in on each door to see if the ajar light will go out. If it does, the door may just need to be adjusted to close tighter. If it doesn't, you may need to pull the switches out to see if one is bad.

The interior lights are controlled by a combination of door switches and manual switches. There is usually a centralized controller that receives ground signals from switches in each door, when opened. If any of the switches sends a ground signal, the controller turns on the lights. Any given light may also have a manual switch that can turn the light on and perhaps off, though there are usually some lights that cannot be turned off without closing all doors. Many controllers incorporate a delay and perhaps also a dimmer to allow the light to continue for some time after the last door is closed.
If not that, the most likely cause is one of the door switches stuck on (closed). This can be caused by a failure of the switch or a consequence of the door lock being adjusted too loose. A good test for this is to have someone go around the car and push in on each door to see if one of them will turn the light off. Any door that can turn the light off when pushed must have it's lock adjusted in tighter. If this test doesn't fix it, check the individual switches. If you can locate the switches, pull them out of the car body. If the lights go out, the switch is bad. In case the switch has two wires rather than one, pulling the connector off the switch should have the same effect. Test each switch in this way. If you have all switches disabled and the lights are still on, the problem is likely to be either one of the switch wires grounding out to the car body or the interior lights control module shorted on.

Door ajar light is on but all doors are closed? Havent checked anything aside from shutting all the doors. Its a 2003 vw jetta gl 2.0l 4cyl. Not sure why the door open light in the driver panel stays on

It appears that one of the door operated switches is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the door open light coming on It could mean one of the the door catches is slightly out of adjustment allowing door to sit slightly away from body. Try checking each door for a loose fit by pushing the closed door in, especially the driver's which gets the most use and see if the light goes out. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little more. If door catches are tight then it may be that the rubber pad attached to the door that pushes on the door switch button has compressed and is allowing switch to make contact.

Interior Light sometimes will not shut off in Ford Ranger Pick up

If I am not mistaken, the plunger is located in the door with the latch. Most of the time you can just pull the door panel off and adjust the switch. After opening and closing the door, they get knocked out of adjustment. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Take care and best wishes.

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 indicator stays on

you may just need to adjust your door jams they may not be closing properly, the other thing you can try is opening one door at a time and putting your finger on the switch usually in the lower l/h corner of b piller and see if the light goes off if not this may be the problem and replace the switch
