SOURCE: 95 ford windstar door ajar

These switches are inside the doors attached to the door latch assembles.If you know some one with a scan tool you can go into the body computer and see which one is showing open when all the doors are closed. The most likly one is the drivers side door or the two in the rear gate. I've replaced those the most.If you don't want to replace them you can unplug them and the lights will go off. Hope this helps. If you need more info let me know> Thanks Dan

SOURCE: door ajar light stays on

I have the same problem with my passenger door all the time. The dealer was nice and didn't charge me for some advice. Find out which door it is or do this to all. It is the part on the door the grabs the round thing in the door jam. It looks like two fingers kinda. Spray with WD-40 and clean with a rag to get all the dirt out of there. Spray again and open and close the door several times. This clears my problem and I hope this helps you too.

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.

Interior Lights - Check door ajar switch, its possible that go to bad.
Door Lock - Check ground connections and test switch.

Rare but possible, re-synchonized security module.

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.

Interior lights stay on when the switch is off and car is parked


is the door ajar light on sometimes also when driving? I had a similar problem with the light staying on. I determined that it was the passenger front door latch sticking. I opened the door, then took a screwdriver to push the latch shut on the door jamb. (Make the truck think the door is shut even though it is open). Then lubricate that jamb and pull the handle open to open the door. Keep doing this (closing with screwdriver and opening with handle) until the latch works freely. This took care of my light and door ajar problem.

Door Ajar message comes up even when all of the stores are shut. Interior Lights and Lights on side view mirrors stay on. Lights can be shut off but the Door Ajdar message remains on.


I have this same problem. A mechanic friend told me that basically the grease they use to grease the door latches cause a sensor to think the door is open. He said to buy something thtat will break up this stuck grease, but also has lubricating effects. I forgot what he told me to buy though.

Spray some WD40 into the latches on the side of the doors then open and close the doors several times firmly.This will unstick the door adjar switch most of the time.Start with drivers door first.
