Try disconnecting your battery cable and then reconnecting it.. if that doesn't work then you may have a faulty door sensor switch. this may be under factory warranty through the Chevy dealership

Hi I have a 2006 Lincoln navigator the air suspension pump will not turn on the vehicle dynamics module is not turning on the pump relay because in the pid data the drivers door says it is ajar when it is...


Hey Jeff, any U- codes stored in any modules ?
U1900 Missing CAN message(s) Door(s) ajar, PRNDL, 4x4, instrument cluster (IC), running boards, vehicle speed REFER to Section 418-00 . U2023 Invalid CAN message(s) Door(s) ajar, PRNDL, 4x4, instrument cluster (IC), running boards, vehicle speed REFER to Section 418-00 .
L4 CHECK THE VDM FOR DOOR AJAR INPUT
  • Key in ON position.
  • Monitor VDM door position status PID.
  • Close all doors, liftgate, liftgate glass and power running boards.
  • While observing the diagnostic tool, open and close one door.
  • Does the door status PID change between CLOSED and AJAR states?
When you open an close the driver door you have no PID change ,right ?

The door ajar input is an input to the Vehicle Security Module , then transmitted over the bus ! You'll have to find a diagram for the med. speed CAN data bus .

2008 explorer door locks not locking from door switches


This is not a good thing. Ford uses a computer called the GEM and that means General Electronics Module. It controls:
  • Low Coolant Indicator On Cluster
  • Brake Indicator on Cluster
  • DRL - Control
  • Wipers
  • AutoLamps
  • Rear Defrost
  • Interior Lamps(dome)
  • High Beam Indicator only (cluster)
  • Low Coolant indicator
  • Key-in Buzzer
  • Seatbelt indicator only (Cluster)
  • Trunk Pop Relay
  • Power Locks
  • Door Ajar Sensors
  • Door Keyless entry pad
  • Remote Keyless Entry
  • One Touch Down (power window)
  • Air Bag Tone
  • Anti Theft (perimeter Alarm) (SEL, or SE(s) with mods)
  • Lift gate ajar (wagon)
  • Liftgate Pop
  • Accessory Delay signal (accessory that work after engine off, prior to door ajar)
  • Battery Saver Relay signal (accessory that work after engine off, 15 mins) Map lights, vanity mirrors

They are located behind the radio in the dash and they are $$$ about 600 USD.

Door ajar message on my 2008 ford edge


open the door and manually press in the little switch that the door closes onto. If the door open light stays on then there is probably water got into the back of the switch or dirt ... giving a false signal to the dash light. try cleaning the switch and contacts.

The alarm goes off by itself..I am no where near the key


very old post... choices?? i will try to help others fix ALARMS.
Jeep WK. 2005 to 2010
what id do? , is never set it. or defeat it. (ask)( the oper,guide tells this)

but if it MUST work than it must be fixed.
the dealer would use a scan tool , see no errors and replace something exensive, then it fails again. the endless story of alarms.
in your case he'd install the TSB fix first.
He'd use a DRBIII scan tool to find the offending input.
The BCM (body puter ) gets the sensor inputs belowL

The BCM receives the ajar switch signals on the following circuits.
  • Circuit G75 provides left front door ajar switch signal
  • Circuit G74 provides right front door ajar switch signal
  • Circuit G77 provides left rear door ajar switch signal
  • Circuit G76 provides right rear door ajar switch signal
  • Circuit G78 provides liftgate ajar and liftglass ajar signals.
the hardest problems are always intermittants.
Intermittent alarms and stalling engines, tops list.
finding it? , with out sleeping in the car is a big problem.

also there is TSB on this.
Swing gate open alarm.
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/2008-wk-liftgate-open-message-746268/#post13865598

the hard part, is finding out which inputs is (was) failing.
in my car i can find it with a scan tool .
newer cars store the failed input in the PCM memory. as a DTC.

In my shop I have a CAN-BUSS monitoring tool that allows me
to see live AJAR messages and logs them to the laptop, HDD.
for later analysis. (ok the lift gate failed at 3am, bingo)
my 2008 logs, DTCS like this.
B1820-HOOD AJAR INPUT CIRCUIT HIGH (and all others)
i have a scan tool that can see that , called a innova 3160
a $200 tool,
I have 2 ways to find intermittent in my newer jeep

2006; WK?
FSM quotes with comments.
VTSS VERIFICATION TEST - 1A Diagnostic Test
1. Perform VTSS Verification Test
  • Open the driver door and roll down the window.
  • Remove the ignition key (but keep in hand).
  • Lock the doors with RKE transmitter or power door lock switch.
  • Ensure all doors, tailgate, and tailgate flip-up glass are closed.
  • If the VTSS Indicator Lamp flashes rapidly and after approximately 16 seconds changes to a slower flash, the system is operational. However, If the indicator fails to flash as described, there is a problem with the system.
  • comment: gee, attempt to rattle all doors, and see if VTSS sees a failure. all doors, lift gate and hood, (if car has hood switch)
the FSM shows the B1xx and B2xxx codes for alarms.
only a scan tool can do that. mine can,
you can also rent cheap CAN-BUS scan tools, from most good
autostores.
that should cover most alarming issues.
but here is one better for older jeeps.
see matrix table for coverage by body type.

Door contact shows door ajar


If the door is closed and you still get the door ajar message then chances are the plunger in the door frame is bad. The plunger is the little switch that pushes in when the door closes and opens with te door. you can push it in and out with your finger to test it.

Instrument cluster indicates door ajar but there is not


The door latch has a switch built into it to replace the old door jamb switch. If the switch is faulty the system will think the door is ajar. A scanner will show an open switch.

YOU SHOULD BE UNDER WARRANTY.

My passenger's door open indicator is on but the door is closed. Where is the indicator located? 2005 freestar. Thanks


Normal Operation When any door or the liftgate is opened, the ajar switch provides a ground signal to the smart junction box (SJB). When the door or liftgate is closed, the ajar switch opens, removing the ground signal. The SJB uses the multiple inputs from the ajar switches to determine whether the doors or the liftgate are in the open or closed position. The SJB then provides a message to the instrument cluster over the communication network. The message center uses this information to display the door/liftgate ajar message.

I suspect your door switch is not closing all the way.

"Door Ajar" signal on dash panel stays on even when doors are clo


there should be a switch mounted( or more than one) in the door jamb that tells the car when the car door is open...i will probably look like a little plastic plunger...might be broken off or bad internally

Interior lights,and doorstep lights fuses


sounds like you have a door ajar switch bad on one of the doors. start vehicle and close all doors and liftgate make sore the back glass on liftgate is closed. now look for a door ajar alert. if the alert is thare then one of the door ajar switches is bad. if this dont help then open each door and spray a lubricant called PB BLASTER in the latch assembley on each door then open and close each door about 10 to 15 times, this will usally free up the switch that is stuck.PB BLASTER is available at your local auto parts store. soak the latches pretty good when doing this as to make sure it reaches the switch.the fuse to the running board lights is under hood behind the power distrabution box. it should have a cover on it , thare are about 6 fuses in this box the one to the running boards is a 10 amp color red just pull each red fuse till lights go out.
