Hi

there are small pin switches in the door, when the door pushes up againsit it in the closed position the pin switch goes in and turns the light off, if defective then they can stick internally causing this fayult, also there are 2 wires behind them that can corrode and start to decay, normally only one or 2 screws to remove the switches spray with wd40 any other faults would be obvious once you have removed it. there is one on each door including the boot although the boot / trunk will normally be seperate.

Hope this helps

Regards

Dan

p.s do you need any pictures ??

    There are door ajar switches at the latches of all four doors. The rear latches are on the bottoms of the doors. On the bottom of the door there is 3 Torx screws take those off and your door panel and you can pull it up and take it out and clean it., Still looking for an image for you.

Door ajar light and buzzer stays on when I'm driving my 2006 ford focus


This problem is caused by one of the door ajar sensing switches being defective, it is a common fault in Many Ford cars and light trucks. Each door has a switch and two at the tail gate door. The switches are attached to the side of the door latch and very hard to replace, since you would most likely have to detrim at least two doors to find the bad switch the most prudent thing to do is have the dealer scan the door ajar waring system, the scan will indicate exactly which switch has the problem.

Ford Taurus SE 1999. Dome Light - Door Ajar indicator problem. This is an intermittent problem, hence far more difficult to isolate. OK. I will be thorough in describing this "set of problems" as I do...


i must say that i feel your pain with this,, my door ajar light does the same thing but my dome light doesn't come on when the doors are open, i have to flick the switch on the dome light to make it come on. In my opion and i stress my opion it saounds like a issue with the body controller, im not sure what ford calls it but it controls all the body functions, i dont think the low coolant light is connected to the body contoller but i dont know this for sure, i think that light is controlled bny the engine ecm. some times a dealer can connect to the body controller and see if there are any fault codes for circuits that it controls and or monitors, also they can reflash or update the configeration and or calibration level cause ford release's fixes for issues all the time, same theory works for any control module on a vehicle. i dont think any of the auto parts stores have the right program to connect to bofy controlers but i could be wrong, worth looking into. i only put up with mine cause i use it as a beater, if you are worried about your dome light staying on and drianing your battery then you could pull out or disconnect the dome lights for the time being, its not a fix but just a band-aid.

Dome light stays on afrter the door is shut And the ''door ajar light comes on And the dome light will not go out. If I take the lamp (bulb) out the door ajar goes out and of couse the light goes out,...


in the door jam there is a switch it sounds like the switch either needs to be adjusted or replaced to adjust loosen the big flat screw at the bottom and turn the switch to acheive the right height. if it is at the correct height then try a new switch. this should solve that problem if not then you have me stumped also.

Door ajar light stays on along with dome light


I know the problem. Mine does it too. The fix is easy. Open & close doors to find which one is causing the problem. Open that door panel and find the release latch at back of door. There are 2 wire harnesses attached to the latch. Unhook the wires and spray sockets of latch. There is a ballbearing that gets stuck in switch. Lubricate that ballbearing and work latch manually several times. This problem will reoccur occasionally especially when there has been a lot of rain. Good Luck
