Hi, There are several causes I would look for.
Each door has a door button that indicates if the door is closed, or turns on the interior light if it is open. There are also contacts on the sliding doors that when they mate, the warning light will go off.
I would try to find the cause.
Do the following.

1 Check to make sure all of the doors are closing properly. You may have one that looks like it is, but is not.

Each door that swings open, i.e. the two front side doors and the hatch should have button switches located in the front door jam of the front doors and one for the rear hatch. Somtimes you will find more then one button.

2 Close all doors
3 Open the driver's side door. (The one that gets the most use), turn on the key but DON'T start the car.
4 find the buttons and push on them on and off to see if the warning light goes out. If it does, then the switch on that door or the door closure position or latch should be able to be adjusted so it works again. If it doesn't, go to #5
(Note: the switch may have a broken off tip, so it may be necessary to replace it. )

5 Repeat for the passenger side door. If necessary go to 6
6 Follow test for the rear hatch. (you may need someone to help on this step.

The sliding door should have some type of "button" like contacts. There may be something lodged into one of them that is giving your a faulty contact.

Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

    To answer your question. Yes you can take out fuses. But please, for safety reasons, take out the
    one that solves the light or buzzer. You don't want to have NO warning lights at all.
    Good Luck,
    Mark

    Hi Mark,
    I have found out that now, on many vehicles, the switches are situated withing the door latch assembly. That these will stick. The solution is to spray WD-40 into the lock mechanism and open and close the door about 10 times. Then Repeat opening and closing the door another 5 times. I would do this for all of the doors, including the tailgate. That may very well solve it.
    Hope this helps,
    Best Mark

Door ajar light stays on as well as interior lights when all doors are closed


Most vehicle door open light works by a spring loaded contact switch. The switch body acts as ground. when the door is closed the switch depress disconnecting positive from ground. Seems that one of your door switch may be bad. Look for a rubber covered sitch on the door jam you should be able to remove the rubber cover to access the switch for a good inspection.

I have a 2003 ford tauraus and when i start the car my interior light stays on and the door ajar pops on with all the doors closed and car running and then it does it after i get out the car it goes out...


That is because the switch is faulty and is not operating when the door is closed.

Hence the interior light stays on(unless you switch it off manually) and the warning system thinks the door is still open because the switch has not been activated and therefore the open door warning appears.

Hence you need to have the door operated switch replaced.

Door is showing open and interior lights stay on....when door is closed properly!!


This is because the switch mechanism on the door frame has failed and needs to be replaced. Hence the switch remains on and power will continue to flow to the interior lights until you switch them to full manual mode. The door warning light will also show as open because the warning light is operated off the same switch.

Interior lights cargo lights remain on when doors closed switches will not turn interior dome light off or cargo lights when engine turned off and key removed from ignition and doodrs closed.


you need to check the door switches make sure that they work you can disconnect them and check to see wich one is bad you do this by opening only one door at a time and disconnecting it the one that turns the lights off is the bad one. and you can also check the dimmer switch sometime the wheel gets turned all the way over and the lights stay on also

Hazard light and interior lights problem on 2001 A3


the indicator lights flashing constantly might be a warning from the car that all the doors have not been closed properly

after writing this ^^ i think that the system that tells the car if the door is open or closed it damaged or broken
and needs replacing

try leaving all the doors open and lock the car do the indicator lights flash contantly?

you need to get a dianostics done but due to the reson that it is intermmitant the problem will not exist when you get to the garage

check all the sensors that tell the car if the door is open firstly

Toyota Camry 1991 door light stays on


You need to readjust the switch on your trunk door, or replace. To check it locate it, tape it down with duct tape and see if the light goes off. If not it's bad. If it does it means it isn't sticking out far enough to be turned off when the trunk is closed. The adjusment should be fairly obvious. If not you can simply unplug it which has the same result as turning it off.
