My alarm on 2002 ford explorer goes on at random at night. Door ajar light comes on internittently. Any ideas on how to fix or disarm the Alarm?


most likely you have a door switch problem, you must take to shop to have it scanned, and they can tell you what door it is. most times it is drivers door, because that is the door that gets the most use.

Door ajar keeps showing up while lights flicker. car alarm goes off.


You have a bad door latch sensor. This will flicker the dome light and trigger your alarm. It is either built into the latch or if you see a small button in the door jamb the switch is there just remove the nut and replace it.

The car alarm keeps going off for no reason and the door adjar light stays on


There is a sensor on every one of the doors, including the hatch. One of them has gone bad and is telling the computer the door is still open. That is alerting the car alarm system and setting it off. The one that usually goes first is the hatch, but the only way to test is to take each of the switches off and do a resistance test on them.

I would take out the door switch, cut the wires and then twist them together, tape them. And the switch is now gone an not the causeible problem anymore.

Door ajar light remains on - 2002 ford explorer


Ford Explorer since 1995 has been using an in-door switch for the door jamb. Older versions used a plunger that you could easily test with with your fingers. The common problem is that the switch is not closed, this will cause your dome lite to be on, door ajar light on, and will malfunction any aftermarket auto alarm. Replace the switch, this is a known Ford problem.

under your dash on the drivers side usually you should find a small button. turn the ignition to the on position then press the button under dash your alarm will stop and you're on the road. P.S. your alarm may reactivate when you disconnect your battery. just go through the motions again.
