Hi...
Ok.. on your Ford explorer , you have 1 sensor on each door.
You need to idetify the bad sensor.
The sensor is a DEALER Item only.
To replace the sensor you need to remove the door panel.

Depend of the door. replace and put everything back.

2003 suzuki grand vitara - door ajar light always on


Start at the driver's door; since this is the most used door. Disconnect door ajar swiches one at a time until the light is off with all doors shut. If the light is still on with all switches disconnected, there is a short circuit in the wiring somewhere. The most likely spot for a short circuit is under the carpet near the front seats.

The speedo display shows that the door is open and the interior lights dont go off even though the door is shut. does anyone know how we can solve this problem.I have had diagnostics on the car which...


On Fords, and I imagine this vehicle as well, the door ajar switches are located inside the doors, and integrated w/ the latches. Often, over time, the switches will get a bit sticky from accumulating debris. Using your favorite lubricant (WD40, etc.), liberally spray directly into the latch mechanism. After doing this to the first door, open and close it several times to see if you've located the sticky switch. If not, move on to each door and repeat the process.

Good luck.

All interior lights stay on even after you turn off car


check to see if the door ajar message is illuminated on your dash.The door sensors can get gummed up and that will keep your interior lights on even if all the doors are shut tight.Spray your door sensors with WD40

Dome light stays on. Always says theres a door ajar.


The sensors are in the latch assembly. Try opening the doors and spraying the latches with WD-40 that will usually fix it.

Door ajar dash trouble and dome light stays on even if all doors


The door sensors will need to be replaced. A screws can be removed and then a wire can be taken of and you then can replace the switch.

Door Ajar message comes up even when all of the stores are shut. Interior Lights and Lights on side view mirrors stay on. Lights can be shut off but the Door Ajdar message remains on.


I have this same problem. A mechanic friend told me that basically the grease they use to grease the door latches cause a sensor to think the door is open. He said to buy something thtat will break up this stuck grease, but also has lubricating effects. I forgot what he told me to buy though.
