It says the door is a jar but it isn't.

When you start it says door a jar. Then it starts locking and unlocking the doors. It will stop doing it for a day or two and then start back up.

My car kept showing right front passenger door ajar and the right front passenger door interior light would not go off. Also my right front passenger window and door lock would not work. Eventually, the car battery ran down.
I charged the battery while in the car. I started the car up, the aboved conditions still existed. I decided to reset the control module; by disconnecting the negative battery terminal cable from the battery for 30 - 60 seconds. I reconnected the negative battery terminal cable to the battery.
Restarted the car. The right front passenger door ajar indicator went off . The right front passenger door interior light turnrd off when the door is closed; and the power window and door lock worked properly.
Problem has not reoccurred.

One of your door switches is probably faulty or sticking. They look like little buttons/plungers sticking out from door pillar at handle end,or in door jamb area on hinge end. You'll see where the door closes on them. Usually you can get it to act up by pushing it in & out while door open, and see if door ajar stops. When you try a door & it continues to say door ajar, with button pushed in, you found the culprit, just make sure you try it on them all. You will either have a screw or 2 holding it, or probably round black plastic base, just pry it out, and be careful to pull straight out the hole, so wires don't touch metal when coming out.

    Sorry meant to tell you that spraying them with contact cleaner may help, if you want to try before replacing.

Drivers door is locked. (Manual locks) Will not unlock or open with either the key or by pulling up on the lock lever inside the car.


You probably jarred the locking linkage loose, not fun getting the door panel off to repair it. You could try squirting some down between the panel towards the locking mechanism to see it will free up.
