Its not a fuse its the door switch thats bad. they are located inide each door at the door latch mechanism. must remove door panel to get to em. but you can try spraying each latch with wd that may help loosen them up

Is there a fuse for the door ajar on a 2002 kia sedona

No there is no fuse. If all the doors are closed check to see if the door ajar light is on your dash if it is you have a problem with 1 of the 4 door ajar sensors.

Interoir lights stay on after truck shut off. 2002 Ford F-150 Super Cab. any hints on what to look foe?

If the interior lamps and the door ajar light stay on after removing the keys and closing the door, this is usually a sign that the door ajar switch is gummed up.

Liberal spraying of WD-40 in the latch and close open the door a few times. It can take up to 5 cycles of this to get the door ajar latch working correctly again.

There is a thread on in the electrical forum ( sticky at the top ) that has pictures of where to spray the WD-40 if you are unsure on this.

My cargo and interior lights wil;l not go off on my 2002 F-150 I need to lnow what fuse it is or fuses?????

This is usually caused by the door ajar switch not making contact.
The door switch is part of the door latch on the F-150.

Liberally spray the door latch with WD-40, close and open a few times. Repeat this process 3 or 4 times, and check the interior lights / door ajar indicator on the cluster.

There are pictures of where to spray in a sticky in the Electrical forum on if you need them. This is a somewhat common problem, to get dirt and gunk in the door ajar switch, causing the contacts to stay open.

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 and interior lights stay on constantly

The switch that tells the computer that the door is closed is broken or has a loose wire.This causes the computer to think the door is open thus the door ajar and interior light on.Switch should be located on door jam.
