Chances are this is a case of a dirty door ajar switch, which is part of of the door latch.

The way to check ( fix ) this is to spray down the latch liberally and close open the door a few times.

It might take 2 or 3 cycles of this to get the door ajar switch to start working again.

There is a thread in the electrical forum at F150online that covers this, with pictures of where to spray the WD-40 if it is not clear.

I have a 1995 Ford F150, Iwant to know how to Replace the dome light switch? my dome light stays on when I shut the door.


For the 97 and newer model year trucks, this is a case of needing to spray the door latch with WD-40, the contacts stopped working ( dirty / gummed up contacts ).

Not 100% sure this is the same on the 95 MY truck, but on the 97 and newer it took a few rounds of a good spray, close and open the door, good spray, repeat to get the contacts working again.

Worth a try, if the light does not shut off due to the door, I would say it is a problem with the door switch to the LCM ( Lighting Control Module - moved in the 97 + MY to the GEM ).

Door adjar warning light stays on. Dome and cargo light stays on.


You need to remove the door ajar sensors from the doors and clean and lube them. You must remove the interior door panel then remove the door latch. Then twist the switch out of the latch to work on it.

The rear cargo light won't turn off. This happened after I replaced a rear turn signal tail light bulb and a fuse for the horn. (These went out at the same time.) When the blinker light and horn were...


Hello! The instigator of this problem appears to be the the rear cargo lamp; Official name is rear dome light. You'll need a multimeter set on the X10 ohm scale to shoot this trouble. Leave the rear dome light bulb out. There are two switches involved; #1 the rear dome light on/off. #2 the right hand front door switch.

Pull the horn fuse out, remove the rear dome light cover, drop the rear dome light down to access the wiring and close all doors on the vehicle. Connect one lead of the ohm meter to the white wire and the other to body ground. If you read any resistance one or both of the two switches (dome light switch or right hand front door switch) is remaining closed when all doors are closed. Next disconnect the black lead from the dome light switch and see if reading changes to zero. If it does this is indicating that the dome light switch is defective. If it does not, disconnect the right hand door switch and take another reading at the same location. If you still measure any resistance, the black wire of the rear dome light is shorted to ground, if not then the right hand door switch is the culprit.

The reason the right hand door switch and not the left hand door switch is involved is the fact that opening the left front door would turn on the front dome light as well as the rear light. If both dome lights are staying on with all doors closed I would then involve both door switches in this test procedure. If your vehicle is a four door model then disconnect one door switch at a time while performing this test procedure.

The horn fuse also supplies power to the rear dome light, and I suspect the two events are related.

I have a 1998 Ford F150 no Dome lights and cargo lights


Hello. the wiring harness plug that goes into the relay panel just to the left of the brake pedal may be your culprit. . If you remove the cover of the relay panel and wiggle the wires in the big connection plug, you will likely find that your interior lights will flicker. I believe Ford had a recall on these wiring harnesses so contact a Ford dealer about that.
