Question about 2003 Lincoln Navigator

2 Answers

On the 2003 lincoln navigator, my drivers side running board doesn't deploy when the drivers door is opened. The interior light and the radio doesn't recognize that the door is open, hence the light doesn't come on and the radio doesn't shut off.

It is most likely that the door switch in the pillar near the door catch is not making proper contact when the door is opened and therefore not triggering the functions that operate when the door is opened. It is quite common for these switches to become intermittent. To check, try operating the switch plunger by hand, with the door open, to see if the functions operate. If OK, then remove switch and clean contact points with some fine emery paper or other suitable abrasive such as an ink eraser. When reinstalling, ensure there is a good contact between the switch body and the door pillar. If the cleaning process fails to correct the problem then the switch should be replaced.

It has to be a bad door switch. This would be the small button type the extends when the door opens and retracts when closed. Somewhere in the door jam area.

Interior lights stay on wile i'm driving my 2005 lincoln navigator


Only one bad door switch should do that

The 20 min time out is the GEM or Body Module,
which is normal only because you have a bad switch,
otherwise it goes to sleep when either front door opens

Put radio on & open a door,the radio should go off
& kill the time delay if no issues exist

Navigator Door Chime goes off when car off and I open the door. Radio system stays on & interior lights go off when door shuts.


All this comes from the GEM module,You will need to repair the driver door lamp switch located in the door lock assemble.

Where is the relay located in the door that controls the running boards?


It is most likely connected to the relay that activates the interior lights when you open the door. In between the door hinges is the most common location for relays like this. If your talking about the power relay check the power distribution box under the hood.

Running board stopped working


More than likely you accidentally disabled the feature if you have already checked the fuses and they are good.
Your owners manual tells you how to re-enable the power deploying running boards .
I'll paste a copy of the directions for you :
***********copy***********

Enable/disable:
To enable/disable the power running board feature, refer to the Message
center in this chapter.
• When this feature is disabled <OFF>, the running boards will move to
the stowed position regardless of the position of the doors.
• When this feature is enabled <AUTO>, the running boards will move
back to the correct positions based off of the door positions.

(Message Center )

Setup menu
Press this control for the following
displays:
• Reset to English (if in another
language)
• System Check
• Oil Life
• Units (English/Metric)
• Autolamp Delay (if equipped)
• Easy/Entry Exit
• Air Suspension (if equipped)
• Autolock (if equipped)
• Power Liftgate (if equipped)
• Power Deployable Running Boards (if equipped)
• Compass Zone (if equipped)
• Compass Calibration (if equipped)
• Language


Power Deployable Running Boards (if equipped)
This feature automatically deploys the side running boards for easy
entry/exit from the vehicle or for cleaning.
1. To disable/enable the power
running board feature with the
vehicle in P (Park), select this
function from the SETUP control for
the current display mode.
2. Press the RESET control to select the running boards setting as
follows:
• AUTO: the running boards will automatically deploy when a door is
opened and automatically retract when the door is closed,
• OUT: the running boards will remain deployed regardless of the doors
being open/closed. This setting can be used when washing the vehicle, or
accessing the roof rack. The running boards will stow and enter AUTO
mode when the vehicle speed exceeds 5 mph ( kph),
• OFF: the running boards will remain IN regardless of the doors being
open/closed.

Let me know how this turns out.

What would make the interior lights in my 2003 Lincoln Navigator stay on after it gets shut off? They will only shut off when you drive down the street, once you shut it off and get out, they stay on and...


you may have your dim switch on and this cause the lights to stay on but they don't stay on all night or day they have a 10 minutes delay switch after 10 minutes they go off but yes there is an open circuit can be a door can be the trunk or the dim switch look for it and try to find the source of this open circuit like a mention before it's on the doors or the dim switch

My trucks computer tells me there's a door ajar


check each door jamb button (can't think of the correct term). close all doors except one... push the button manually... does the interior light go off... if it does move on to the next door. that will narrow down where the problem is... or it should. it also could be the relay for the interior lights located on the fuse panel under the dash.

Receiving door ajar indication on 2003 Lincoln Navigator


Sounds like you have a Faulty Door Switch. When you open the door there is a Small Button on the Side closest to the Inside of the Truck. Push this in with your Finger and see if they don't go off. Some of these are Movable so you can adjust them in and out.
