This problem is caused by a sticking door ajar/coutesy light switch(s) or switches in one of the doors or the tailgate, since there are 6 poss switches (one for each door and two for tailgate) the best thing to do is have the dealer run a test of the GEM/Body control module, they can read which switch is the faulty one right away, the switches are inside the door attached to the door latch's, very hard to change..

I had the same problem. WD40 cured this in a flash! Be generous with the WD40 to allow parts to loosen and clean the "gue" that has built-up over the years. Several open and closings of the door should do the trick. Note that cold weather exasperates this condition. The best to you all in the new year!

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: door ajar light stays on

go to your local parts store and buy a can of PB BLASTER lubricant then open each door and spray the latch assembley really good then close and open the door 10 to 15 times. do this with each door. the door ajar light switch is located in the door latch assembley and cannot be seen so soak the latch assembleys really good so lube reaches the switch. these switches sometimes get stuck but this usually frees up the switch

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.

Hi I have a 2006 Lincoln navigator the air suspension pump will not turn on the vehicle dynamics module is not turning on the pump relay because in the pid data the drivers door says it is ajar when it is...


Hey Jeff, any U- codes stored in any modules ?
U1900 Missing CAN message(s) Door(s) ajar, PRNDL, 4x4, instrument cluster (IC), running boards, vehicle speed REFER to Section 418-00 . U2023 Invalid CAN message(s) Door(s) ajar, PRNDL, 4x4, instrument cluster (IC), running boards, vehicle speed REFER to Section 418-00 .
L4 CHECK THE VDM FOR DOOR AJAR INPUT
  • Key in ON position.
  • Monitor VDM door position status PID.
  • Close all doors, liftgate, liftgate glass and power running boards.
  • While observing the diagnostic tool, open and close one door.
  • Does the door status PID change between CLOSED and AJAR states?
When you open an close the driver door you have no PID change ,right ?

The door ajar input is an input to the Vehicle Security Module , then transmitted over the bus ! You'll have to find a diagram for the med. speed CAN data bus .

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..

My door ajar light is on but all doors are closed and the overhead lights keep going on and off


You have a bad door ajar switch on one of the doors. It is shorting out and causing the lights to flicker and the door ajar light to stay on.

My 2003 ford excursion thinks there is a door open when all the doors including the rear hatch is closed leaving the running boards and interior lights on for several minutes. How can this be fixed?


For the door ajar--You can do a simple test of each door opening. Just take a small amount of masking or duct tape and make a small ball of tape. Stick this on each doorjam switch one or 2 at a time and if the lights work better you need to work on the bad jam switch. Just remember that the sequence of the engine running, shutting the engine off, then opening and closing the door must be repeated for each opening including the cargo doors. You need to duplicate the conditions for all the relays to trip to cause this problem.

The door ajar warning is what is keeping the lights on and the Battery saver in your truck is overriding the door ajar problem. I hope my solution is helpful, there are some plastic dividers in the doorjam switches and sometimes they break.

Door ajar or the message board


all the doors and trunk lid have switches fitted to them, these switches sense if he door is not closed, the problem is they stick and then then u get the door ajar warning, the lincoln dealer can isolate the sticky switch very quickly with an electronic scan tool, the part is cheap about $12

My trucks computer tells me there's a door ajar


check each door jamb button (can't think of the correct term). close all doors except one... push the button manually... does the interior light go off... if it does move on to the next door. that will narrow down where the problem is... or it should. it also could be the relay for the interior lights located on the fuse panel under the dash.

Interior lights,and doorstep lights fuses


sounds like you have a door ajar switch bad on one of the doors. start vehicle and close all doors and liftgate make sore the back glass on liftgate is closed. now look for a door ajar alert. if the alert is thare then one of the door ajar switches is bad. if this dont help then open each door and spray a lubricant called PB BLASTER in the latch assembley on each door then open and close each door about 10 to 15 times, this will usally free up the switch that is stuck.PB BLASTER is available at your local auto parts store. soak the latches pretty good when doing this as to make sure it reaches the switch.the fuse to the running board lights is under hood behind the power distrabution box. it should have a cover on it , thare are about 6 fuses in this box the one to the running boards is a 10 amp color red just pull each red fuse till lights go out.
