Question about 1994 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

My 1994 dodge grand caravan all of a sudden the dash display continually now says "door ajar", when all doors are closed. I think its the sliding door, but its obviously completely closed/not sticking out or anything... The lights stay on, and I don't know what to do. Easy fix?

When the doors close on a 1994 model they usually make contact with a switch. The switch should be visible on the body of the vehicle, check all of your switches and clean or replace as neccessary.

first I would be looking at the body switches for dirt or rust causing a false signal.. then I would adjust the part of the alarm that the wind affects..it should be adjustable for sensitivity..the dealer service should be able to advise you..if not check with an alarm service company..that installs these systems..good luck..

Door ajar sensor


Its a thick pin surrounded by a rubber ring/bellows that is in the doorframe of each door. Each pin operates a switch. When the door closes it presses the pin in and when it opens the pin slides out so it protrudes into the door frame. Open each door one at a time and press in the pin with something strong like a shoe heel, this simulates that door being closed. Do it several times, till you find which switch is not working all the time. Change that switch by removing the rubber surround and unscrewing its fasteners.

Door ajar lite comes on and the alarm keeps dinging all doors are in line and closed how to make the ding stop?


first of all, you may have one or more door buttons that are bad. spray all door switches with a good spray lubricant and see if this helps. if not, find bad one and replace it. if door switches are bad door ajar light will think door is still open.

1994 dodge caravan door ajar warning and bell alarm with clicking noise comes on while driving


I have seen this problem on the sliding door of caravans. Look for the contacts on the door jamb when the door is open. Take some light sand paper and remove the oxidation on both contact points. Also at times the door gets out of adjustment so it won't close tight enough to turn off the warning. With the door shut check the contour along the body line. If the back side of the door is sticking out a little it may need to be adjusted. That can be very tricky, it might be advisable to ask a body shop to adjust it for you.

Hope this helps.

Sorry but I would need to look at the door operation first hand to see what is going on. I will say that dirt and lack of lubrication on the rails that the door slides on are the single biggest cause of this.
