SOURCE: 2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed

I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.

if the door ajar light is on then get a can of PB BLASTER at your local parts store and spray all the door latch assembleys really good and open and close each door about ten to fifteen times this will usually free up the ajar switch

SOURCE: Door ajar message goes on and off even if doors are closed

Your door closed switch may be failing. I seem to remember that it might be part of the door latch, otherwise it will be a button in the door jamb area. You need to check the switches with a meter.

My alarm on 2002 ford explorer goes on at random at night. Door ajar light comes on internittently. Any ideas on how to fix or disarm the Alarm?


most likely you have a door switch problem, you must take to shop to have it scanned, and they can tell you what door it is. most times it is drivers door, because that is the door that gets the most use.

My door ajar light flashes and causes my alarm to go off all times .abs light is on.


the door ajar light is caused by defective door ajar switch or switches, there are 6 of them and anyone can cause the problem, The Ford dealer has a scanner (called an NGS) that can read what switch is causing the problem, the switches are inside the door attached to the door latch assemlby, a real pain for a professional to replace, done 100's. The ABS is also one of many problems, once again the dealer can scan the system for the paticular part that is defecive, which most likely will be a wheel speed sensor, there is one at each wheel.

Door ajar light remains on - 2002 ford explorer


Ford Explorer since 1995 has been using an in-door switch for the door jamb. Older versions used a plunger that you could easily test with with your fingers. The common problem is that the switch is not closed, this will cause your dome lite to be on, door ajar light on, and will malfunction any aftermarket auto alarm. Replace the switch, this is a known Ford problem.

Door ajar


Hi,

Often, intermittent "Door Ajar" warning is indicative of a faulty switch. The switch is normally embedded into the body and is triggered by the door pushing on a rubber cover. They are normally located at the rear edge of the door opening. A 1997 Ford Explorer would have a switch similar to the image below.

It is highly probable that the switch has some corrosion causing it to engage every now and then. Another probability is that the rubber cover has come loose causing vehicle vibration to engage the switch.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
