    The door ajar switch is located on the door. You have to loosen the 3 latch screws than twist the switch counter clockwise and pop the switch out. I called the local Ford dealship and the repair department told me how to remove the switch.

    is this a big problem on the rangers with the "suicide doors" ?
    my door ajar light has been on since I bought it used 4 yrs ago. and its not a huge problem other than I have the cab lights disabled, which makes doing anything at night impossible :)
    is it an easy fix ?

99 ford ranger interior lights wont shut off

the problem is caused by a defective door ajar/dome light micro switch, there is one for each door, they are mounted to the door latch assembly inside the door, to replace it you must remove the door panel and the rear glass run channel, most likely the drivers door is the one that is defective since it sees the most use, they are a real pain to get out,they twist in and the old one will be a bear to remove, twist it out counter clockwise to remove from latch

Ford ranger 1998 the door ajar wont turn off and the dome light isnt turning on

Spray inside the center door latch with WD40 or silicone lubricant. You might have to remove or partically remove the plastic shield cover the opening. It's the part the door latches too, spray all around inside there and that should allow the switch to release. the switch either dries out or gets dirty and sticks, the spay will loosen and clean it.
