This is a common problem and is caused by the door switch plunger sticking (due to dirt, other elements or rust). This can often be corrected by performing the following:

1. Thoroughly spray the door switches (on each door) with:

  • Cleaning spray - clear the sludge out of the mechanism - electronic contact cleaner, carb, brake, etc
  • Air, canned or even better, from a compressor
  • Spray lubricant - a dry lube (best), silicone spray, WD-40 or similar
2. Open and close each door several times to work the lube into the mechanism. This is usually sufficient to clean the electrical and plunger mechanism inside the door switch.

If this doesn't work, you could remove the door panel and do the spray treatment from the inside also.

Hope helps (remember rated and comment this).

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.

SOURCE: 2001 Sequoia, door ajar light goes off, but dome

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.

2002 lincoln towncar door ajar light s stay on after minor accident. Only goes off when in drive. Can't find the fuse. I have to disconnect the battery


You have one or more door ajar sensor switches that are defective, have the BCM (Body control module) scanned to see which door is causing it, the light can be turned on by any of the 4 doors. The sensor is located inside the door on the door latch mechanism, there is no fuse as it is a ground circuit.

I have the same problem only now the door won't register that it is even closing! So I have to drive with the door ajar light on, and the inside lights stay on too unless I turn off all the paneling lights. I am not sure what is going on. But I am taking it into the shop on Monday to find out what is going on. I could handle not having my controls on the driver side, but this door thing is wigging me out! Hope you get yours fixed
