Question about Toyota Previa
Thanks for using FixYa. Try and reset this Warning light as this can be a false alarm, remove the terminals from the battery and check if that resets the warning light. If that doesn't help then one of your door switches is either loose or it could be defective.Check one door at a time to find which one it is, they are located on the bottom of the door frame.
Check all the doors (and tailgate) to make sure they are all latched properly. Sometimes the metal contacts that tell your vehicle the door is closed become dirty or corroded, causing a FALSE indication that a door is ajar. Cleaning the contacts will usually solve this kind of problem.
Does the dome lamp come on when you open 1 door at a time with all doors?
If yes then probably a wire for a door switch is wore through and is grounding out where it passes through the door by the hinge side. To check, put all the door switches back in, then open one door at a time, and while holding the switch button in on the door, jiggle the wires and see if the light goes out.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
