Question about 2005 Ford Futura
The 'door open' light is on in my BA Falcon however all of the doors are closed properly.
The central locking wont work because it thinks one of the doors is open.
Can I do anything myself to try and fix this?
Hi I have the same problem on my BA XT Falcon
Strangely it only happens after it's rained on my car (usually overnight) I then notice that the drivers lock is up and will not lock again until a nice sunny day comes and I leave all doors wide open for hours and hours!! Then all of a sudden once closing all doors normally the little dash door light turns off, and I can again lock the doors
Since it rained all last night here, guess what? It happened again!
So I've checked everywhere and cleaned and you name it, but nothing, I'm positive that when a warm sunny day comes again though, all will be ok.
Most annoying issue ever.
Where is this tiny bit of water that's causing this?
And which door?? Can I just disconnect one door at a time? I don't know it's driving me crazy!!!!

Check that your boot is not open. Sometimes as I'm removing my keys from my pocket the boot release is activated on my remote and when all doors are closed the in-dash door warning light is on.

Just take the door fuse out then lock the car the old way

Mine was the same. Turned out to be the BCM (Body Control Module) located below the stereo on a BA. Has to be replaced and car key code reprogrammed. Cost $250 for the module and $50 for a sparky to install. DO NOT go to Ford as it will cost $1000+
