Hi! Have you checked the sensors beneath where the door sits? Its a toggle like that goes down when the door is closed. The door may not pushing the sensor in when its closed. Try putting a rubber that can push the door sensor when closed. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    I looked for this other switch you talked about and cannot find another switch for when the door is closed. The only switch I see and have replaced is the one on the inside of the door jam close to the front fender area which seems to actuate the lights and also tells you if you leave the keys in the ignition when the door is open. When I put the car into drive is it still says "front door ajar" .

2001 Sequoia, door ajar light goes off, but dome light stays on. Door ajar light comes on with slight pressure against closed door. Can replacing the door jam switch solve this problem? Why would the door...


To temporarily solve the light problem, I taped a washer to the inside of the door where the door hits the plunger on the light switch. A permanent solution would be to drill a hole in the door at this spot and put a self taping screw in that will trigger the switch sooner. I figured out the reason the dome light stayed on is due to the courtesy light timer and the lights would have eventually gone off.

Door ajar warning going off


You need to adjust or replace the switch in your door jam. It is set too far in, and any pressure is making it connect.
