How do i slove my door ajar problem


Try spraying wd40 into each door latch. Do it one at a time then open and close the door about a dozen times spray some more in there after about 6 open and closes. Do this with each door and even the hatch. This should clear ya right up.

I have a 1999 300m the interior lights remain on,


The sensor switch in the door latch is dirty or may have been damaged. Thoroughly spray the door switches with a cleaning spray like carb cleaner. Then give it some canned air to blow out any remaining dirt. Then use a spray lubricant like WD40. After that open and close the door a few times and see if the light goes off when you close the door. If this doesnt work you'll need to take off the door panels to get a better view.

Door ajar message with doors closed/ interior lights and mirror lights remain on


Several may answer this with variations on my solutions/diagnostic...

Summary: You have the dash light switch set to BRIGHT (which turns on the interior lights) or you have a door-open sensor switch bad/rusted/loose/out of adjustment.

Test each door switch separately... manually press it all the way in... to see if the light goes off.

If that fails, remove each one.... the bad one will be rusted or broken. Replace it!

My door ajar light remains lite


The switches are FAMOUS for sticking. The easiest thing to do is spray (I mean HOSE) the latch in the door with penetrating oil and repeatedly close and open the door, like 20 times, this may get the switch working again. It will be hard to tell which switch is indeed stuck, unlless you really pay attention, and note which door you are working on when the light does go out.

You can use WD-40, open door and spray directly into latch on door about 5 seconds to make sure you get plenty into latch to reach door ajar switch at bottom of latch,pull up on outside handle and use small screwdriver and work latch back and forth several times to work WD_40 into latch this should solve your problem,GOOD LUCK!

DONT KNOW HOW TO FIX A FEW PROBLEMS


When my "door ajar" light was on it was because the liftgate sensors (switches) indicated that the gate was open, even thought it wasn't. I took off the plastic trim, and took out the sensors - but that isn't necessary. Just soak with the switches with silicone spray, and see if that helps. There is one on each side of the liftgate - I believe both must indicate "closed" for the light to go off.

I have gotten replacement motors at Checkers for both driver and passenger doors - so now I have lifetime replacement motors.. The first time you replace them, a little drilling is needed on the door sheet metal, but it will not show up once the trim is reinstalled. This repair is a little involved, but well within the capability of a novice mechanic.

Interior Light sometimes will not shut off in Ford Ranger Pick up


If I am not mistaken, the plunger is located in the door with the latch. Most of the time you can just pull the door panel off and adjust the switch. After opening and closing the door, they get knocked out of adjustment. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Take care and best wishes.

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.

Door ajar light still on which leaves interior lights constantly


This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.
