Question about 1997 Ford Explorer AWD
Often, intermittent "Door Ajar" warning is indicative of a faulty switch. The switch is normally embedded into the body and is triggered by the door pushing on a rubber cover. They are normally located at the rear edge of the door opening. A 1997 Ford Explorer would have a switch similar to the image below.
It is highly probable that the switch has some corrosion causing it to engage every now and then. Another probability is that the rubber cover has come loose causing vehicle vibration to engage the switch.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
