The ajar switch is located internally in the door latch and they are a sealed unit . So u will have to replace the latch. B4 u do this just wiggle the wiring to the door near the hinges as this area is prone to wiring concerns due to it being open and closed all the time

The light on my dash saying the door is open wont

they have little pin switches on the inside of the door jar's check all these are pushing in and then back out when the door is open, they stick internally sometimes and you have to wd-40 them to free them up.

Also is the door light the same one for the boot? or is that another light? if it is a shared light for both then check the boot lid underside and the small panel on the bottom where your knees would be ensure these are all clean and have a good contact.

If no joy please get back to me.

Recently, the inside light on my 2003 Chevy cavalier began fading on while I'm driving or when I stop at a light. Sometimes it fades off when I start moving again built it also stays on after I park, shut...

Sounds like your light switch is sticking ,you'll have to find it and lubricate it with penetrating lube.The switch may be a plunger switch that moves when the door is closed ,but I think it's part of the latch.Spray the switch and open and close the door to work in the lube.

The light stays on. 2001 fordf 250 the door adjar light stays on.

Try shooting some WD40 in the door latch assembly on the side of the door then open and close the doors several times. Most of the time this will un-stick the door ajar switch.

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.
