    I have a stuck open driver's side front door switch on my 1998 Ford Taurus. I've removed the inside dome lamp so I won't run my battery down. How can I fix this problem?

Remove "Door Ajar" switch. Clean the switch and use a graphite type lubricant (I recommend "Dry-Slide") to lubricate the actuator on the switch. Reassemble the switch.

The switches are located inside the door panels, attached to the catch mechanism.

1) Remove interior door panel.

2) Using a T-27 Torx driver, remove the 3 bolts holding the catch in the door.
2a) The door ajar switch is the only part on the mechanism with the 2-wire harness.
2b) The switch is located at the rear catch for the sliding door.

3) Using a small flat screwdriver, gently lift the black tab on the catch mechanism and rotate the switch to remove it from the catch assembly.

4) Using a rag, clean the small round actuator and apply a small amount of graphite lubricant to the actuator and work the switch so it moves freely.

5) Reassemble the catch and the door.

I had this problem and my mechanic looked everywhere finally discovering the wires in the top of the van were making contact against the roof and causing the lights to come on. Good luck!

Before you start taking the doors apart, try spraying something like"WD40" or another spray lubricant into the door latches. Pay special attenton to the sliding door, there are two latches, one in front and one in the rear.

SOURCE: door ajar light and interior lights stay on

The switch is attached to the door stop. First clean with brake parts cleaner and then follow with white lithium grease.

The open door light stays on wen all doors r closed


Thats because your door is out of line and when closing it,its probably not closing on the switch that should be on the inside of the pillar post were the door actually shuts on..Get the door fixed or lined up properly so it closes flush and will certainly then close on the switch that triggers the open door light :-)

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.
