No. odds are it's just a faulty door switch. Probally 20 bucks for the switch at local auto parts store. Never replaced one on a ford explorer so I can't give you step by step instructions on this vechile.

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..

While making left turns the reargate dome lite goes on and off. Also the door ajar dash light goes on at the same time. this only happens while turning left. how can I fix this.


I assume the ajar light comes on if you open the rear gate? Try to duplicate the problem with the car running and parked, and you pulling on the gate. Sounds like the door or close switch needs adjustment.

Keeps saying door ajar and already skirted with wd 40


The door ajar switch is the problem and it is inside the door and is sealed, so WD40 will not work, you must remove the door panel and the rear glass run channel and then replace the door ajar micro switch at the rear of the door latch, it has a 2 wire connector to it

Door ajar idiot light wont go out and bells is going off on a 1997 ford windstar minivan. which fuse do i pull thanks no manual


Sound like one of the door jamb switches is bad. Try taking a pencil or screw driver and pushing in on each door switch. Push the switch beyond the "flush" point to see if the switch is just not fully closing.

Dome lights intermittently flash on and off in a 1996 Jeep


If it has automatic or a domelight that stays on for a while after you shut the door is on a timer relay and that is probably getting bad. As far as the door ajar message there is a switch in the door jam, look and see if you see it. Take wd40 and try to soak the switch try to get it inside the switch.If its incorporated in the door latch spray back inside the door latch real good. Open and close the door several times and see if it works then.
