Door ajar light stays on in my 2007 mazda 3 what can i do its draining my battery every 2 to 3 days

Hello Jerry Nelson,

Door ajar light... typically means "a door is ajar"

Assuming the car is undamaged, no dents, bent doors or bullet holes: you have a wiring fault.

You should go around your vehicle and inspect each door, find the switch... With all the other doors closed ... operate & release the switches in sequence... until you run out of switches... and find NOTHING UNTOWARD.

See if you can remove the switches and disconnect the wire...
If you still have found nothing... restore EVERYTHING to it's original condition.

Most of these "switches" will operate for the full life-cycle of the vehicle. If you cannot figure out which door is causing your problem... TAKE YOUR CAR to a highly recommended
MECHANIC... and let then find the electric issue.

Popular USA market vehicle CIRCUIT Drawings (and TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETINS) can be found on the BBB Industries website (see below: registration required).

Hope this helps.

Can anyone explain why my 1993 Cadillac Eldorado wont start after it sits overnight? Also, why does my interior lights jump on sometimes when I hit a bump then turn off when I hit the door panel. My car...

Cranks and starts are two different things.
If it cranks but won't start it could be loosing fuel pressure overnight.
If it won't crank in the morning, you could have a bad cell in the battery or something draining the battery overnight. Such as the interior lights coming on and off.
The light problem could be the door ajar sensor in the door latch.

i would suggest you recharge the battery overnight, this should stop the hazzard lights activating as they do when battery level is too low.
