Has car been damaged ? A pushbutton in a door well is likely problem. Door is not pushing the button in far enough to open it's contacts therefore, computer reads it as door ajar.
Try taping small piece of plastic or metal (one door at a time) in the area that contacts the pushbutton, Then close all doors. Continue thru all doors to find the guilty one.
It's possible that the pushbutton switches may not be visible (mounted out of sight) and use some sort of lever to actuate.

Driver side door ajar light comes on 2006 chryler 300 c


alarm will obviously sound because the anti theft device thinks door is open...maybe it doesn't think ...it mis detects
check the door light switch and how it is affected by closing opening of door. look at what happens at the contact point.
It may be something mechanical, or something electronic/electrical
empirical testing should reveal the answer

Door ajar light keeps coming on when door is closed tightly


The problem is a dirty switch. use a can of wd-40 or equivalent and spray the door latch heavily. Next hold up on the door handle and work the latching mechanism back and forth really fast. Next repeat the process 2 or 3 times. It only takes a few minutes and your door latch sensor will be working like new again.

2001 Sequoia, door ajar light goes off, but dome light stays on. Door ajar light comes on with slight pressure against closed door. Can replacing the door jam switch solve this problem? Why would the door...


To temporarily solve the light problem, I taped a washer to the inside of the door where the door hits the plunger on the light switch. A permanent solution would be to drill a hole in the door at this spot and put a self taping screw in that will trigger the switch sooner. I figured out the reason the dome light stayed on is due to the courtesy light timer and the lights would have eventually gone off.

There is a magnet type sensor in the door jamb and door that come together when you close the doors.You have to replace the magnet switch in the door that it is bad in. these newer model Fords are notorious for those particular switches going bad
