The door switch is in the door, that is why you cannot see it, and they are troublesome. I wish they would have never taken them out of the door jam, when they were there, they rarely had issues. You will need to either take the door panel off to get to it, or take it to a shop to have it done. It is a dealer item only.

Where is the courtesy light switch in the drivers door on a 1998 Navigator


courtesy light switch , is door ajar switch an it's part of the door lock actuator . Light on coming on ? Not going off ? The ajar switch is a input to the GEM module , fords BCM - body control module . The GEM will energize a relay to turn on the lights .
The GEM will illuminate the interior lamps when any door is open or ajar. The interior lamps are; the dome lamp, the rear cargo lamp, the door courtesy lamp and the side rail lamps. The courtesy lamps will shut off when the doors are closed and the illuminated entry feature is not active or when the vehicle speed is greater than 5 mph (8 km/h). The interior lamps will not be reactivated until the vehicle speed is less than 3 mph (5 km/h) and a new door open warning lamp switch is received.
The GEM controls the interior lamps illuminated entry function by activating the interior lamp relay.
Mite be a good idea to have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .

2002 ford explorer xlt overhead lights not turning off. I have replaced the 2 front door ajar switches and everything worked. However, I pulled up and parked and the overhead lights would not go off.


Which overhead lights ? Just the dome lamps . If there is no door ajar light lit on the dash . There could be a problem with the G.E.M - Generic Electronic Module . You should have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Need a special scan tool ,a OBD2 code reader won't do it.
  • The courtesy lamps stay on continuously
  • Circuitry.
  • GEM/CTM.
  • Ignition switch.
  • Interior lamp relay.
  • Dimmer module.
  • Door ajar switch.
  • DTC B1322.
  • DTC B1330.
  • DTC B1334.
  • DTC B1338.
  • DTC B1371.
  • DTC B1574.
  • DTC B1610.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test D .

You best bet mite be to have a Qualified repair shop diagnose this .

My door ajar light is on but all doors are closed and the overhead lights keep going on and off


You have a bad door ajar switch on one of the doors. It is shorting out and causing the lights to flicker and the door ajar light to stay on.

2001 Sequoia, door ajar light goes off, but dome light stays on. Door ajar light comes on with slight pressure against closed door. Can replacing the door jam switch solve this problem? Why would the door...


To temporarily solve the light problem, I taped a washer to the inside of the door where the door hits the plunger on the light switch. A permanent solution would be to drill a hole in the door at this spot and put a self taping screw in that will trigger the switch sooner. I figured out the reason the dome light stayed on is due to the courtesy light timer and the lights would have eventually gone off.

Door Ajar light wont go off.


replace the relay for the courtesy lights. the relay should be under the dash in the fuse panel on the drivers side. if you can't figure out which one. just put your finger on each one till you find the hottest one by touch.

2004 crown vic interior lights stay on


Don't think you have a door ajar switch problem , more then like the lighting control module is the culprit . Does the door ajar light on the instrument cluster stay lit ?
The interior lighting can be separated into two distinct modes of operation: the courtesy lighting and the demand lighting. The lighting control module (LCM) controls all of the interior lighting in the vehicle, as described in the following text.
The front dome lamps, rear reading lamps, and instrument panel courtesy lamps, can be illuminated either by opening any of the vehicle doors (courtesy lamp function) or by depressing the headlamp switch (demand lamp function).
When any door is open, the door ajar switch grounds an input to the LCM which then sends power to the courtesy lamps. The voltage sent to the courtesy lamps gradually increases from 0 volts to 12 volts within 500 ms (± 50 ms), to achieve the theater lighting effect. When the door(s) are closed the door ajar switch(es) break(s) the ground to the LCM input which then gradually reduces the power from 12 volts to 0 volts within 5 seconds. (± .5 second).
When the headlamp switch is depressed it grounds an input to the LCM which in turn sends 12 volts to the front dome lamps, rear reading lamps, and instrument panel courtesy lamps. When the headlamp switch is depressed a second time, it breaks the ground to the LCM input which then ceases to send power to the front dome lamps, rear reading lamps, and instrument panel courtesy lamps.

The battery saver will disrupt power to the courtesy lamps after 10 minutes, the demand lamps after 30 minutes, and the headlamps after 10 minutes. Turning the ignition switch to the RUN or ACC position will terminate the battery saver feature by disabling the interrupt timers and reinstate power to the lamps.
