Question about MTX Ford Explorer/Mercury Mountaineer/Mazda Navajo 1991-2001 Thunderform Loaded with 10 Inch Woofer and ... Car Speaker
The 2004 mercury mountaineer that i own is giving me trouble with the door ajar dash light staying on. All doors are shut properly but the interior lights stay on unless i turn them off manually and the alarm will not turn on as well.
Ends up being a broken wire(ground) in the rubber boot between door and frame. I carefullly removed door panel, pinched the ends of the boot and slid it back into door. And there it was...a broken black wire. Spliced in a new piece of wire, reassembled everything else. Everything works like it should. It's really not that hard just take your time. Also before I started I disconnected the battery as a precaution. Goodluck.

Could be a sticking latch, a short in one of the door latches, a problem with the dome light circuit itself, or a short in one of the wires. Look under the door seals and see if any wires have been caught or screwed through. Put some lubricant on the door latches. Last resort, start taking the doors apart 1 by 1 and disconnecting the door triggers in the latches. When you get the right door disconnecting it will make the other doors work right. Then you can replace only that 1 door latch. Otherwise you can just start replacing door latches till you hit the right one. If its in the dome light circuit there is a Black/lt blue wire in the driver kick panel in a harness to the rear. This wire shows + when the dome light is on. You might have some luck traceing this wire.

My husband sprayed all of the door latches with WD40 and problem solved for this 2003 Mercury Mountaineer.
