Spray the door latches (both sides) with a good penetrating oil like PB Blaster, let it soak and then open/close the door 10-15 times, the light will go out.

My 2004 PTCruiser Door lights up on the dash and all the doors are shut. Why is my light staying on and where is the fuse panel located so I can remove the fuse for the


Dear Amy,
Having the light stay on indicating a door or your trunk lid is open when it is not, may mean you have a defective door switch or a defective ground to one of those doors or trunk lid.
Your owners manual might tell you what each fuse its for, or call a Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth dealer and ask them.
Understand that if you find the proper fuse, and remove it, it is possible that a few or many other things may no longer work, as sometimes the circuits are tied together or connected.
God bless your efforts.

How do I find out which fuse is for my dash board lights when I dont have my manual?


The door ajar light doens't have a separate fuse. But you can probably fix the problem in 15 minutes:
  1. Make sure all doors and trunk close tightly. Lean hard against each door, starting with the driver's, because it is the most likely since it gets the most use. Watch the light. If it goes out, you're halfway there - you've located the problem door.
  2. Squirt some WD-40 into each door's switch. They may be located near the hinge, or near the latch. Press the button repeatedly and then wipe it off. That may fix the problem.
  3. Next, it could be the alignment of the door and strike plate on the jamb. Adjust the latter until the light goes out.
If that doesn't do it:
  1. Dont worry about the battery going dead from the indicator light staying on - it draws too little current. But if a dome light (or trunk light) stays on, it will drain the battery in a number of hours.
  2. You didn't say whether the dome light stayed on. If so, or if you have any other information, please post it and I'll try to help you determine the next steps.
Has this helped ?

The door sensor stays on when i open and close the side door on my 1998 ford windstar which causes the interior light to stay on.. what can i do to stop that from happening?


I had the same problem. Cheap way to fix is to remove fuse. Only problem with that is my power windows were on the same fuse so they wouldn't work without the fuse. Alternative was to remove the bulbs from interior lights and leave the fuse in. The door ajar light will remain on but at least your interior lights won't be on running down your battery.

My horn stop working the box that show drive, park ect don't light when i hit the lock button one of the locks make a noise my


THE HORN AND THE GEAR SELECTOR PANEL LIGHT NOT WORKING IS MOST LIKELY BLOWN FUSES. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO LOCATE THOSE FUSES VIA YOUR OWNERS MANNUAL. THERE ARE DIAGRAMS AND LISTINGS OF FUSES AND ACCESSORIES FOR YOUR ENTIRE CAR. PULL THE FUSES INDICATED AND REPLACE THEM.

IF THE "NOISY LOCK" LOCKS, THE RELAY TO ENGAGE THAT LOCK MAY BE "STICKY", MEANING ITS STAYS ON LONGER THAN NEEDED. IF IT DOESNT LOCK, THERE MAYBE SOMETHING BLOCKING THE LOCKING MECHANISM BEHIND THE DOOR COVER.

Door open indicator stays on and lights stay on and car won't lock


One of the doors "thinks" it is open.That will make light stay on, power door locks will not operate and alarm will not arm itself. If the indicator shows which door is open, then check on the door frame for the door ajar pin / switch. Move it by hand repeatedly to see if it is stuck or misaligned. If unable, then pull the pin out to check the connection, and if still no help, then bridge (short) the cables to see if dome light goes out. If this is the case, then replace the pin.

Interior lights will not go out - door ajar light on


I have this same problem that I am trying to figure out what is causing it and how to fix it. I have taken the fuse out several times and I hate putting it back in everytime we need the lights or roll a window down, and taking it out when I turn the car off.......... if you want to take your fuse out it is number 14 (or the second row from the left and the 3rd fuse down) and it is a number 15 fuse I think.

1998 escort zx2 dome light stays on when switch is set for door; all other indicators, chime for key in ignition etc seem OK. Light works normally in switch on and off positions.


It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.
