all door ajar switches bad? not likely. try closing the doors one at a time until you find which one or ones are bad. to remove the door panels there are two bolts under the arm rest remove and slide the panel up. on front door you will have to remove the triangle moulding at the a pilar ussally black. and remove the Phillips screw. the door ajar swithes are in the latch assembly. make sure not to mix up left from right as they only fit one way. remove all the rods on the latch before removing the latch from the door. this will prevent any bending of the rods. the switch has a half turn install. make sure when installing the new one, that it dose not move when put back in. if it dose you have the wrong switch or it is not installed correctly.

All you need to do is to spray WD40 on all the door latches!! works every time...

What can you do if a 99 Chevy Malibu lights come on when the door is closed and the engine is off killing battery?

First verify that you do not have the interior lights switched on using the panel (instrument illumination) dimmer switch. Verify that door switches are working normally and doors are closed. Then, if all of that is well and you do not have any damaged wiring, replace the BCM. Also, you could pull the fuse out, but then you wouldn't have any interior lights. Ditto if you pull the bulb out.

Yes. the two switches are called '3-way' switches. You will have to turn the fan/light on with one of the switches and leave BOTH switches in that position. The remote control unit will have to be wired in between the switch that is supplying power to the devices and the devices. This is the simplest way. You could also disable one of the switches and replace the remaining switch with the RC unit. If you are not sure how to deal with 3-way switches, learn about them first, or call a good electrician to do all of the work. Remeber that the black wire is hot, but only if the house was wired properly in the first place.

What is electrical plan in interior design?

The electrical plan is more of a tool in architectural design than interior design, where the architect in a residential design will place switches, outlets, and light fixtures into the floor plan. An interior designer could then use this information to figure out key issues such as which switches affect each light, and where to place electrical components in the design such as electronics. Also the placement of 220 Volt Outlets directly affect the placement of objects such as washer/dryer and electric appliances in the kitchen. In short, the framework of the electrical plan dictates the placement of devices, fixtures, and appliances throughout the architectural plan.

Why does the power sliding door on the driver's side of my 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan not open nor close when I push the buttons on the front console or the door pillars?

There are several reasons this may happen. It could be the buttons on the door pillar console themselves, the switches inside of them are not working. It could also be the body computer, which is responsible for relaying the signal from the switches to the door motors. Another thing to check would be to see if the switches on the door pillars are getting power. Check all of your fuses and replace any that may have blown.

Sometimes the instrument panel dimmer switch also has another "detent" that turns on the interior lights without one opening one of the doors.

How do you fix power door locks on 1993 Lincoln Town Car?

The most commen problem with all power options are the switches themselves. If you have both driver and passenger switches and both are not working and they went out at the same time it could just be a fuse. If they quit working independent of each other it is probably the switches. To replace them (depending on the location) either a plate comes off to give access to the switch(then just pry or pull it out)or a door panel has to come off to give you access. Replacement switches can be purchased off e-bay(best price) or the dealer.
