Question about 2005 Mazda Tribute
DOOR AJAR LIGHT GOES OFF EVEN THOUGH DOORS ARE CLOSED.
Pits one of the five door ajar switches. They are located in the door latch mechanism that holds the door closed. The best way to figure out which one it is is to scan the body control module. With all the doors closed. It will tell you which door is giving the open signal. This will need to be done with a high end scan tool that any good shop or the dealer will have.
The most common one to fail is the driver front door.

YOU need to locate the RESET alarm button. They are in different places but the most common are UNDER the steering wheel column, glove box, drver side kick panels or in the middle console someitme hiddedn. The button is small and not sure if your alarm is factory or after market.
>HOLD the BUTTON in while the key is in the off postion
>TURN the key to ACC while holding the button.( this should reset it)
>or put he key in ACC1st then hold down the button for a about 5sec.
>or your car manual will have the instructions

I could not find this switch either, It is actually located in the door latch on the door jam. Switch is somewhere inside. Took my truck to mazda dealer and had it replaced. Anoying problem.

Make sure you don't have the curtsy light on and if thats off then you need to find the door switch thats not closing they are located in the door panel.
