This is a lite on, when the door jam switch in not in far enough to cut the ground circuit. If you have slack in the door with it closed .You may have to adjust the door latch on the door pillor post! You may check to see if you can rattle the door while it is closed if so, it needs the adjustment corrected.Otherwise it may be the door jam switch itself,at fault.

If only the door ajar light and interior light is not working it is probably the door ajar switch located on the door latch inside the door. sometimes a little WD40 sprayed towards lower side of the latch will work, frees the piston in the switch. if not the switch must be replaced. If also the outside mirror control does not work, the door lock switch also does not work, it is a bad ground to those three systems, the Electric windows have a separate ground wire and still work. You must feed a new black wire from a good ground on the body thru the door accordion tube and connect it to the larger black wire on the plug that goes to the door lock switch. The door lock, the mirror control, the door ajar light, and the interior light problem will be gone.

Dorr ajar light is on

this problem is caused by a sticking door ajar sensing micro switch inside the door on the door latch, it is a twist in switch, in your car there are 4 switches, one for each side door and 2 for the hatch, since replacing them is labor intensive have the local Ford dealer scan the system, the scanner can see which particular switch is causing the light to stay on.

My power locks keep locking and unlocking by them selves this is followed by the dome lights flicking on / off and the door ajar warning turning on / off as well what could be causing this? how do i fix...

one of your doors is not closing tightly. with the door ajar light on and all doors closed, have someone walk around the car and push in on each dorr to see which one puts the light out. Then adjust the lock on that door so it holds the door in tighter. Let me know if this doesn't solve it or if you have questions.

I left my lights on all night and it drained my battery i was told the altonater also needed replace so i did that and replaced the battery now my brake light, the dorr ajar light and the battery light on...

It possible your alternator may have been going bad, but by leaving your lights on over night it would not affect your alternator. The alternator doesn't do anything until the engine is running. Whoever put these items on could have short a wire out. On the other hand with the battery light still on makes me think the alternator was not put on correct or the a bad connection between you battery cables. Try having the cables loosened and re-tightened. It really hard to pin point one exact thing by not seeing where the problem could be visually. I would take it back and have them fix it right or find out why this happened when these items were changed.

Door Ajar light

youve got a bad door ajar switch in one of the doors- next time it's on try slamming each door one by one til it goes out, when it goes out- that is the door that has the bad switch in it. spraying penetrating oil (NOT WD-40!) on the door latch may help-hope this helps and good luck

1998 Lincoln Cont., Drivers Door ajar light will not go off

this sounds stupid, but i had the same problem with my mk8. and it fixed it. open the door and look at the door lockimg latch on the door frame. pull on the door handle numerous times as you spray some silicone lubricant in and around all the mechanism. This will free up the pin switch that is activated by a cam on the door latching mechanism. I fixed mine 6 months ago and have had no problems since.

Ok...several issues,and you won't believe this.......The 4 wheel drive is controlled by the Body computer,thats right,there is a computer that monitors and instructs Body functions like the door ajar sensors.Well,i just finished reading a technical article on a FORD that had no 4 wd,and the transfer case controller would not allow 4wd operation because the BODY computer sensed a door ajar,so 4wd operation was inhibited.They fixed the door ajar problem,a door sensor,the door ajar light went out on the dash,and the 4wd started working again...OK.....Check engine light is the vehicle computer that controls engine and transmission functions(PCM) has detected an error with a system.When this happens,the computer stores a diagnostic trouble code.Have the codes pulled with a scan tool or code reader.Repair the codes,and the Check Engine light will go out.The power windows,i honestly don't know,but HEY...2 out of 3 ain't bad!!
