The liftgate can be opened by operating the switch on the instrument panel. Battery voltage is supplied to the liftgate actuator through the body control module (BCM). The BCM will pulse the liftgate actuator when a release input is received through the key fob, or the instrument panel switch.
Not sure what your talking about . There is no sensor. there is a relay in the I/P fuse box LIFTGATE PCB relay . an a lift gate actuator motor inside the door . An there is a door ajar switch ,which is part of the latch mechanism. Do you have light lit on the instrument cluster - a picture of a little car with a door open , an maybe a chime sounding ?

Not

Sounds like you have a wiring problem to your liftgate. Check the wires where they come out of the body, and go into the liftgate. If they are good, check fuses, or possibly a module.

SOURCE: Rear door won't stay shut

Check the latch mechanism on the door. There is a piece of the latch that closes around the clasp on the door frame. sometimes this closes when the door is open and you can't shut the door. Take a screw driver and flip this latch piece open and close the door.

Even though driver door is closed,command screen says Driver Door Ajar.Interior lights stay on,except in drive.Even radio shuts off immediatly after shutting ignition off.Do I need to replace sensor??


Usually the solution to this problem is to use a good penetrating oil and spray HEAVILY the latch mechanism (both doors), let it soak in, and open/close the door 15-20 times-the sensor is in the door and it gets hung up, spraying lubricant on the latches frees it up.

I have a 1996 Mercury Mountaineer. Sometimes the drivers side interior door handle does not open the door. It moves but ti does not open the door. This is a on again, off again problem. Is it connected...


no the latch could be hanging up, the keyless entry pad has no mechanical connection, lube the latch area generously, ....even pull the highest bolt holding the latch in place and with the red nozzel spry into the bolt hole .....hold handle in up position and close door like ten times or more to work the lube into moving components....... make sure when this happens that the lock is fully rising to allow to open,
may need and actuator also if thats not occuring.

97 Jeep Gnd Cherokee showing 'rear door ajar when liftgate closed


Inside the latch is 2 strips and a pin. the pin pushes the strips together. these strips bend and corrode the latch might not be turning to fully closed then the pin won't close the contacts. Spray Graphite lube in and work the latch with a screwdriver There is a plastic coating that might have worn thru on the latch finger The sensor is there for your safety Caravan's would eject passengers if latch is not secure. But that said bypass if all else fails.

The front door latch won't allow the door to close


The latch probobly needs lubed,and is stuck in the closed,or latched position...open door and pull up on handle,and then look at latch componant and you will see that it is in latched position...just pry it back with a screwdriver to open it again...you must have door handle pulled to get it to open though...then lube it and work it back and forth a couple times to loosen it up....good luck ...Lee

Door ajar light on, 1996 aerostar, where are the sensors located?


the door ajar sensor is located on the door latch assembly, u must detrim the door and then remove the rear most window guide rail, it twists into the latch at rear of latch, it is very small and a real pain to change.

Door Ajar message comes up even when all of the stores are shut. Interior Lights and Lights on side view mirrors stay on. Lights can be shut off but the Door Ajdar message remains on.


I have this same problem. A mechanic friend told me that basically the grease they use to grease the door latches cause a sensor to think the door is open. He said to buy something thtat will break up this stuck grease, but also has lubricating effects. I forgot what he told me to buy though.

Scion tc 2005: door indicator on gauge wont shut off?


check all of your door latches to see if they all work. If there are sensors on the body where the door closes toward the center B PILLAR of the car it has sensors for the doors, then push them in and see which one is bad. Sometimes the door sensors are located in the door actuator which usually goes to the driver;s door due to it's high use.
