Lube all the door latches with WD 40. Close the switches with a screwdriver and lube them again. Hold up the door handle and flick the latch quickly with a screwdriver. Do that on all 4 latches and it should fix your problem. :-) hope this helps. Cobra

F 150 DOOR AJAR WILL NOT GO OFF AND INTERIOR LIGHT STAYS ON! HOW DO I FIX IT


If only the door ajar light and interior light is not working it is probably the door ajar switch located on the door latch inside the door. sometimes a little WD40 sprayed towards lower side of the latch will work, frees the piston in the switch. if not the switch must be replaced. If also the outside mirror control does not work, the door lock switch also does not work, it is a bad ground to those three systems, the Electric windows have a separate ground wire and still work. You must feed a new black wire from a good ground on the body thru the door accordion tube and connect it to the larger black wire on the plug that goes to the door lock switch. The door lock, the mirror control, the door ajar light, and the interior light problem will be gone.

Interior Lights and Door Ajar light stay w/beeping noise.


Try spraying WD-40 into the door latching mechanism (door side). I learned this fix after two battery replacements, but have only had to spray twice in the more than seven years of ownership

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.

Door Ajar Warning Light Stays On


Our Ford Expedition & an Olds Silhouette Premier & both did the same thing. Someone online said to spray the inside door where the metal connects with the frame & sensors are there with WD-40. We did & it fixed the problem. Maybe this will work for yours.
