Question about 2000 Ford Windstar
Check the right side sliding door contacts at the front of the door (4 pins). Does it happen to go off after a heavy rain? There is also a contact at the back of the sliding door (RS) that usually becomes an issue. You can either replace the contact at the back of the door (Latch). Or since there are two contacts on that door I usually just cut the two wires going to the rear contact and splice them together deleting the rear sensor. The front sensor has been sufficient in my experience and the two are just overkill, and more problems/diagnostic issues. I hope I've helped. If so, please rate my assistance. Thanks for using Fixya.

Lube your door latches. One of the door ajar switches are sticking . Use wd40 or some othe spray lube . Spray into the latch and open and close doors several time.

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.

If I am not mistaken, the plunger is located in the door with the latch. Most of the time you can just pull the door panel off and adjust the switch. After opening and closing the door, they get knocked out of adjustment. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Take care and best wishes.
