Question about 2003 Ford Expedition

Ford Expedition Door ajar Prob.

Our door ajar light is staying on after we start the truck and we start going. Sometimes the bell rings sometimes it does not . sometimes the the interior light will come on. Our ignition switch has a problem but it may be a seperate problem, because when we go to start it it will not start it will turn the engine over but will not start. If i wiggle the key a few times it will start. The alarm will go off intermitently sometimes you can't turn it off you have to start the truck for it to stop. could all of this be traced back to one area or is it a combination of problems.

    My 2003 Ford Expedition has recently acquired a Door Adjar problem, too. All of the doors and rear hatch window are closed, yet the interior lights are on and the door adjar light is activated on the dashboard. Any suggestions on fixing?

    I have the same problem. Just started up a couple of weeks ago. I trid the WD40 mentioned on various sites, and sure enough it worked. We'll see how long it will last.


    Thank you.

I had the same problem. I also cleaned all the lock assemblies on the door with WD40 and it fixed it perfectly.

I looked on the internet today and I sprayed WD-40 in the inside of the door latches. After i did it I opened and closed the door a few times and it worked. It shut the interior lights off.

Message center constantly displays door ajar message


My 2003 exp-eb-5.4- had the door warning going off all the time, sometimes it seemed more rounding a corner to left. Sometimes I would see the lights on in the middle of the night. Sometimes my battery would be dead after setting a couple of days. Then I wondered if battery was causing the whole door ajar security thing. Switched battery and problem solved. Now 3 or 4 months later has started running crappy in OD, will cruise ok if holding throttle steady. Runs better by turning OD off or at higher RPMs.

Interior lights stay on when the switch is off and car is parked


is the door ajar light on sometimes also when driving? I had a similar problem with the light staying on. I determined that it was the passenger front door latch sticking. I opened the door, then took a screwdriver to push the latch shut on the door jamb. (Make the truck think the door is shut even though it is open). Then lubricate that jamb and pull the handle open to open the door. Keep doing this (closing with screwdriver and opening with handle) until the latch works freely. This took care of my light and door ajar problem.

Door ajar idiot light wont go out and bells is going off on a 1997 ford windstar minivan. which fuse do i pull thanks no manual


Sound like one of the door jamb switches is bad. Try taking a pencil or screw driver and pushing in on each door switch. Push the switch beyond the "flush" point to see if the switch is just not fully closing.

Try spraying WD-40 into the door latching mechanism (door side). I learned this fix after two battery replacements, but have only had to spray twice in the more than seven years of ownership

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.
