This is caused by the door not being properly adjusted to close all the way. When you open the door of the car there should be a stud or U-stud on the door jamb that the door latch latches to. It should be secured by star head bolts. Loosen the bolts and gradually, a little at a time, move the stud towards the inside the car until the light goes out. This will also ensure a proper weatherseal around the door, so there will be no road noise. Also, you will not lose any heat or air in your vehicle when you have the windows up, and running the heat or a/c.

Sound like one of the door jamb switches is bad. Try taking a pencil or screw driver and pushing in on each door switch. Push the switch beyond the "flush" point to see if the switch is just not fully closing.

2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed


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.
