At each door there is a micro switch mounted inside the door on the door latch mech that signals if the door is ajar, there are 2 of these switches on the rear hatch, so that is 6 total, the way we find out which one or ones in many cass is to hook up a body module scanner and read the output from the switches, then we don't have to guess and tear the whole truck apart, so the bottom line here is a trip to the local ford dealer is while worth the money

Ford fiesta ajar light stays on and central lock not working


The central locking will not work when a door is open. find the door which is ajar and fix the door switch. Could be a stuck switch (either open or shut) May just need a whack with a soft faced hammer on the door frame. Don't hit it too hard you could dent the panels.

unhook your battery for 5 mins then hook it back up go to each door and open and close one at a time that way you know which door is having the problem once you find that out replace the door switch and problem fixed or just dont open that door.

Door ajar light stays on


A door ajar switch is probably bad but some suggestions say to open the door spray the latches with some penetrating oil open and shut the doors a few times.Sometimes this method does work temporarily. The best solution would be to hook up a scan tool that is capable of determining which door it views as being ajar.Some of these models have just a door ajar switch attached to the the door latch mechanism others may require the door latch to be replaced.

Door ajar light stays lit when all doors are shut 2005 GMC Canyon


Hi,
This seems that either of the door switches is/are faulty. Try pushing the switches fully on each plunger switch on each door individually, keeping the other doors closed while you do. See if one of them causes the light to go out. If you do find one turns the light off, it's an adjustment problem with the plunger switch. May still need to be replaced if it won't depress enough with the door closing to turn off.Let us know if you were looking for something more else please accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Interior lights stay on when the switch is off and car is parked


is the door ajar light on sometimes also when driving? I had a similar problem with the light staying on. I determined that it was the passenger front door latch sticking. I opened the door, then took a screwdriver to push the latch shut on the door jamb. (Make the truck think the door is shut even though it is open). Then lubricate that jamb and pull the handle open to open the door. Keep doing this (closing with screwdriver and opening with handle) until the latch works freely. This took care of my light and door ajar problem.
