Basically it is either a short in the switch or the wiring
depending on your electrical and automotive skills, it would be easier to take it to a garage...dealer first unless you know of a really good aftermarket garage in your are

Rear drivers side door ajar light flashes and beeps continually while driving


Hi,
have you looked @ that door's 'sensor'? There should be a button somewhere on the door , the door frame or the body that is activated when the door is opened closed.

Per this LINK the button is a part of the hinge:

Ignition off,running lights come on


It sounds like the common problem that the driver door switch sensor is defective and the car thinks the door is open all the time. Repeated closing the doors usually turns off the indicator and everything works fine. There is an entire driver door module for the latch and sensor that has to be replaced if this is the case.

Door open sensor


You have it backwards, when the wires are put together like you have done that indicates an open door to the module. When the door is closed it breaks the circuit and when open it makes the circuit. Pull the barrel around the plunger as far out as it goes and then close the door, then the switch is adjusted. Also since all doors have this switch how do you know you have the correct door??

I doubt the door will open when the car is moving. But the door lock issue is probably the sensor in the door latch.

Jeep and consistant beeping


there are sensor switches on the doors, open one of them and look at the side of the vehicle where the lock is that holds the door close, you will notice a small rubber push button there ,, when you press it,, it closes in turning off the door lights and letting the car know the door is closed.. One of those one the doors is shorting out, by a broken wire or a stuck sensor,, you need to take them out and check the wires connecting them, or play with them by pushing them in and out rapidly until the beeping stops.

Even though driver door is closed,command screen says Driver Door Ajar.Interior lights stay on,except in drive.Even radio shuts off immediatly after shutting ignition off.Do I need to replace sensor??


Usually the solution to this problem is to use a good penetrating oil and spray HEAVILY the latch mechanism (both doors), let it soak in, and open/close the door 15-20 times-the sensor is in the door and it gets hung up, spraying lubricant on the latches frees it up.

Everytime i lock my van the locks keep unlocking themselves


My Honda did this when the driver's door wasn't fully closed.
Does the inside light (dome light) turn on and off correctly when you open and close the driver's door?

If not, then the door latch might be loose or the door sensor switch might have failed (so it thinks the door is open even when it's closed securely)

Scion tc 2005: door indicator on gauge wont shut off?


check all of your door latches to see if they all work. If there are sensors on the body where the door closes toward the center B PILLAR of the car it has sensors for the doors, then push them in and see which one is bad. Sometimes the door sensors are located in the door actuator which usually goes to the driver;s door due to it's high use.
