When you open the door, you should see the sensor, looks like marker cap sticking out either from the door or from the car body, check all around, and press it, do this to all doors and truck, if you have a station wagon. If the door ajar still doesn't stop, than you need to remove this and replace it, or you can super glue it and forget about it.
make sure ALL the doors are closed
Fix a "door ajar" on Chevy Impala 2003 . Still on doors closed.
The back hatch may be ajar.
One of the doors is not completely closed, or you have a faulty door switch.
If the lights are on and the door is ajar it will make a steady alarm.
door ajar means one of the cars doors are not closed all the way in ture this will keep your dome light on
why does my door ajar alarm keep coming on and off while driving my car.
The door ajar switches are inside the doors mounted on the backside of the door latches
Possible faulty door switch.Try contact cleaner or light grade of lubricant on the switch. Push it i nby hand and see if door ajar light goes out.
If your courtesy lights are staying on with the doors closed and there is no door ajar warning light , check on your dash to the right of your headlight switch. There is a dimmer wheel switch for your guage lighting , if it has been rotated all the way up that turns on your courtesy lights when the doors are closed
Each door has an ajar sensor. Disconnect it and see if it works. If it does not work, just unplug the ajar alarm, which is a small black box, from the panel to disable it.
You may have tried this but i have a 2000 expedition and when it sayd door ajar its usually the window part of the hatch that's open....other than that I dunno
To the right of the headlight switch is a gauge light dimmer wheel , if that has been rotated all the way up , your courtesy lights will stay on with the doors closed. If you also have a door ajar light lit up in your gauge cluster , then you may have a sticking door ajar switch , or something isn't closed properly
do you mean door ajar message? Open both doors and spray WD40 in door latch. Then open and close doors many times. This fixed my problem. Hope this helps.
Basically, although all other doors are shut, there is still a small draft which is coming in through the closed door, causing another to open slightly.
Sticking door ajar switch ( mounted on the backside of the door latches inside the doors) or something not closed properly. To fix this, spray some WD 40 into the door latch assemblies, (all of them, including the rear hatch) and operate the doors a few times to free up the sensors.
bad door ajar switch inside one of the doors its in the striker assy
I've had that happen in my 2002 mountaineer. what I've found is that if you spray the door latches with wd40 it will clean off the sensors and the door ajar light should go out. but make sure all the doors are shut.
Try shutting the door.
The Door ajar light is not run by a specific fuse. If your 2003 Kia Spectra has a door light keep coming on, you will want to check the connections to make sure that all of the doors are completely closed.

Common problem, you have to spray the door lock parts in the door with WD-40 and sometimes you have to really spray for the light to go out.
If the door ajar light is coming on in your gauge cluster, and the warning chime is sounding when all your doors, liftgate, and glass hatch are securely shut you most likely have a sticking door ajar switch. The door ajar switches are inside the doors mounted on the latch mechanisms.
Use the remote door lock to lock the doors, then unlock, then lock. The alarm should be reset. If not get in the vehicle, lock all the doors with them closed, unlock them, relock them walla alarm reset!
