03 bonneville interior lights are staying on wont go off. what could be the problem?


The problem is caused by either a defective door ajar switch or the interior light relay. it can be any of the four switches, so the best thing to do is have the BCM scanned to see which switch is the issue. The switch is attached to the door latch inside the door.

What color are the wires that go from door switch to dome lights on a 2005 mustang v6 conv.


The door switch doesn't go to the dome lights , the switch (door ajar switch ) is an input to the SMJ - smart junction box or body control module take your pick .
Principles of Operation
When the SJB detects a request for lighting, it turns on the interior lamps by supplying power to the lamps. The request for lighting can be an open door signal from a door ajar switch, an interior lighting on command from the instrument panel dimmer switch or an unlock command from a remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitter.
The door ajar switches are hard-wired directly to the SJB. The 2 door ajar switches are normally closed when the doors are closed. The decklid ajar switch is normally closed when the decklid is closed. All door ajar switches receive voltage from the SJB and each has its own ground circuit.
The instrument panel dimmer switch receives a ground signal from the SJB. The instrument panel dimmer switch provides variable resistance for backlighting the instrument cluster and a toggle ON/OFF function for the interior lights.
The RKE receiver is contained inside the SJB. When the SJB receives an unlock request from an RKE transmitter, it unlocks the doors and turns on the interior lamps. There could be DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes stored in the SJB ! You can not access these codes with a OBD2 code reader , need a factory scan tool .

Your best bet is to take to a ASE certified repair facility or a Ford dealer .

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.

One of the door switches is not showing an open contact. Which sugnals the computer that a door is ajar. Try blowunyg comoressed air into every door sqitch including the rear hatch. Afterwards, spray each switch with WD-40. Good Luck.

How do i slove my door ajar problem


Try spraying wd40 into each door latch. Do it one at a time then open and close the door about a dozen times spray some more in there after about 6 open and closes. Do this with each door and even the hatch. This should clear ya right up.

2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed


I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.
