You need a small phillips screwdriver. You remove 2 screws inside the door jam to get the old switch off. This video I made shows how to get inside the machine:

To konw the cause of the problem and get it fix.2005 ford escape has a centeral lock and door glass issue.

Which door are you having electrical issues with ? Just one or all ? And what kind of problem are you having ? Power windows and locks not working at all , won't up , doors don't lock ? All the time or intemittantly ? You can check for broke or almost broke wires inside the rubber boot from body of the vehicle to the door . The power and ground wires for the door switch are in there . Opening and closing the door over time the wires can break .

Windows dont work door ajar light is on

I had my door ajar light stay on, turns out the switch in the drivers door latch broke, in order to fix it you have to get a whole new latch mechanism. I went to a junkyard to get a latch but the guy at the junkyard broke the switch while removing it from the door. I got a new latch assembly from the dealer, pretty reasonably price if I remember correctly. They are pretty easy to break right where the electrical connector connects to the switch. Maybe you have a broke switch?

I have a Kenmore 500 series dryer. The dryer just stopped working but the light stays on when the door is closed.

the door switch is broke.when you push on the paddle of the door switch the lite should go out,if you don't see the paddle it most likely broke off,you need to send the full model number next time,it will start with 110.or similar.the door switch is a safety so the machine won't run until the door is closed,if the switch is broke no power will go to start the dryer

Remove the cover --- you shuld be able to release the lock from withinthe cabinet.

While you are there, you may want to replace the door safety interlock switch(s)

You may have to disassemble the door to get the latch fixed.
