If the " strike plate" is not adjusted properly then the light switch will not " seat" properly.
I would say it is related, check these both and please let me know what you find.

Hi there my courtesy lights don't come on my door when the drivers side door opens but the dome light comes on with all the other doors.


The switch is probably worn out in that one door. If you can pry the switch out , or unbolt it, and take the ohmmeter to test for continuity, it could point you in the right direction.

The dome light will not come on when driver door opened. Door jamb switch is fine.


Have you tried a little squirt of wd40 or graphite in the door jam switch and then hand manipulate it a few times?

Doomlight stays on or will not turn on when door opens


You have a dome light/door ajar switch that is defective, the switch is a tiny micro switch attached to the door latch assembly inside the door, to replace it requires the door panel be removed.

Sounds like a bad door switch on one of the four doors. The switches have multiple contacts to serve both the dome light and the alarm system. The actual switch button is under a rubber boot with ribbed sides. The switches themselves are under the interior trim behind the doors.

i must say that i feel your pain with this,, my door ajar light does the same thing but my dome light doesn't come on when the doors are open, i have to flick the switch on the dome light to make it come on. In my opion and i stress my opion it saounds like a issue with the body controller, im not sure what ford calls it but it controls all the body functions, i dont think the low coolant light is connected to the body contoller but i dont know this for sure, i think that light is controlled bny the engine ecm. some times a dealer can connect to the body controller and see if there are any fault codes for circuits that it controls and or monitors, also they can reflash or update the configeration and or calibration level cause ford release's fixes for issues all the time, same theory works for any control module on a vehicle. i dont think any of the auto parts stores have the right program to connect to bofy controlers but i could be wrong, worth looking into. i only put up with mine cause i use it as a beater, if you are worried about your dome light staying on and drianing your battery then you could pull out or disconnect the dome lights for the time being, its not a fix but just a band-aid.
