Your door jam switch is probably bad. The switch is in the door jam and looks like a button. The button pops out when the door is open.

So I close my car driver side door and it automatically says on the dash board that my door is open?? Any suggestions on what might be wrong. Its a 2011 Ford edge if that helps at all. thanks


Your door ajar system is tied into the door latch mechanism. if the door still appears to close tightly, and the door latch works properly, then you may need to adjust or replace the latch, though ford has listed a cleaning procedure for the latch that involves using a tool to test latch position and manually closing the latch (while door is OPEN) using a screwdriver 10-20x and monitoring to see if the latch consistently shows CLOSED and OPEN when it should.
If pushing the door closed after its already closed causes the lamp to turn off, an adjustment of the latch may help, or cleaning the latch contacts may also help. If the door never shows latched regardless of how hard it is pushed, it may be a defective latch, or a wiring problem (Door wires sometimes break in the door harness between the door and the side of the dashboard when the harness enters the vehicle).

Drivers side sliding door won't close


check mechanism on working doors. In my car if I move the catch on the door(click it like in closed position)like it was closed,then when I open the handle it releases open;this shows me closing/opening. Spray penetrating fluid on the metal/mechanism,possibly rusty and prevents smooth actions. Hope this helps.

Rear hatch door won't lock dash light showing


You need to tighten the lock mech on the boot lid. this will close the boot just enough more to turn the light on. It's no biggy, you might need a star driver depending on bolt head. move it into the boot lid approx 4mm to start. then 1mm until 10mm. if no joy then it may be the sensor.
All the best

VW Polo 2001 - Electric Windows wont open from Drivers side..


I removed all 3 switches from driver and passenger door, which is really easy with a flat head screw driver. took them completely apart, very carefully, with a small screwdriver out of a christmas cracker. put them back together again and 2 switches started working, so I put 1 in the drivers side and 1 in the passengers side so now my drivers door window opens and I lean over to open the passenger door. cool, no money spent...yet ;o)

2003 beetle convertable driver side window does not open and close when the door is opend also the door side light dosent work even after a new bulb was installed I think the wiring is somehow conected...


Take a good look at wiring running in to door at hinged end. You may have to open up the loom enough to see wires. Look for an area that appears weak,kinked, or shows signs of where it bends all the time, you'll probably find a wire or 2 showing signs of cracks, or ready to break. Disconnect battery for safety before cutting.Cut wire(s) at weak point, strip both ends,slide some shrink tube down one end past stripped part, then solder together if possible, but if not available, a good **** connector if you have room, but also shrink tube it after you crimp it, for added strength & protection.

2001 A4 Quattro Back Seat Passenger Side Door


There is a child lock on it. Open the door and look on the edge of the door, where it mates to the body when the door closes. There's a lever there that is labeled as the child lock. It'll show her which way to switch the lever to allow the door to be opened from inside the car.
