Door ajar light stays on

We have a 2003 Navigator that the door ajar light stays on and the auto running boards will stay out and come in and out while driving. Could this be a sensor and where is it located?

I have the same problem with my passenger door all the time. The dealer was nice and didn't charge me for some advice. Find out which door it is or do this to all. It is the part on the door the grabs the round thing in the door jam. It looks like two fingers kinda. Spray with WD-40 and clean with a rag to get all the dirt out of there. Spray again and open and close the door several times. This clears my problem and I hope this helps you too.

    We have had this problem before and of course our extended warranty just ran out 6 months ago AFTER they supposedly "fixed" the running board issues, and the air bag issues, we still have air bag issues but the WD-40 worked fixed the passenger running board so it works properly, no more door ajar and no more lights staying on to drain my battery.... and my Navigator only has 50K miles! I will NEVER buy a Ford Product again!

2003 lincoln navigator running board stay out on passanger side unless your are moving (they retract) passenger mirror does not adjust backig up message continues saying door ajar


You probably have a bad door switch that is located in the door latch.If the vehicle tells you which door is ajar I would try a good penetrating oil first and if not replace that door latch.It will take a bit of working the latch before it will start to work if thats all it is so have some patients with it.

All of my doors are closed yet in my 1999 lincoln navigator the light reads door ajar. i believe it is my trunk. but now my lights stay on and drains my battery what can i do


Try spraying WD40 directly into the door latches and opening and closing the doors several times. Usually this will free a sticking door ajar switch.

The interior lights stay on and the door ajar light is on when driving. the interior lights stay on when you shut off the car thus running the battery down. It happens about 70 percent of the time and when...


Find the lamp push button on each door.
Open one door, and only one door (or tailgate).
Push the lamp button IN at that door. If light goes out, then that particular push switch needs adjustment or replacement.
Cl;ose door and open another door. Push button IN.
Keep doing this until you find faulty door push button.

Which door was it?

My trucks computer tells me there's a door ajar


check each door jamb button (can't think of the correct term). close all doors except one... push the button manually... does the interior light go off... if it does move on to the next door. that will narrow down where the problem is... or it should. it also could be the relay for the interior lights located on the fuse panel under the dash.

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.

Door ajar light


The sensor for the lights is in the door latch spray some GOOD penetrant in the door latch (WD 40 IS NOT A PENETRATING OIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) open and shut the door several times after you let the penetrant soak a bit Liquid wrench, PB Blaster, BG Penetrant, are good
