Driver side door ajar light comes on 2006 chryler 300 c


alarm will obviously sound because the anti theft device thinks door is open...maybe it doesn't think ...it mis detects
check the door light switch and how it is affected by closing opening of door. look at what happens at the contact point.
It may be something mechanical, or something electronic/electrical
empirical testing should reveal the answer

My door ajar light keeps coming on along with my dome light but all doors are closed. If I open and shut the passanger door it goes off for awhule and then starts again.


Each door has a door ajar switch in the latch. You can either take some WD40 lube each latch opening and shutting each one 4 to 5 times after spraying, or you can replace the switch

2002 Sable - Interior light stays on all the time when car is running. When the car is shut off the mirror safety light should only stay one for a short time but stay on for 15 minutes.


you have either the thumb wheel switch beside the headlamp switch is turned all the way up or a sticking door ajar switch.
Does the door ajar light in instrument cluster stay on?
If so then you can shoot some WD-40 into the latches on the side of the doors then open and close them firmly a few times and this will usually unstick them.

Removing a relay can cause all kinds of problems. The door ajar switch may have just need to be sprayed with a lubricant to unstick it so the lights would go off.reinstall relay to see if concers goes away.

Door ajar light on


Spraying the door latch with a generous amount of WD40 the open and close the door several times will usually correct it most of the time. If not then you would have to remove the door panel and replace the dar adjar switch located on the bottom of the latch it self.

My door ajar light is on


I have a '97 that does the same thing. Cold weather makes it worse. The problem is that one of the switches that are inside the door, (where the latch is), is sticking. You need to shoot some WD-40 in there and then use some white lithium grease spray. My guess is that it is the driver's door because it is used the most, but it won't hurt to do them all.

Comment back.
