Is door ajar light on also?
On my 2002 sportage 2-door, the door ajar light stays on when the tailgate is not locked. with the key.
If the door is ajar and light stays on, spray some WD40 into the latch. The door switch is probably stuck. Spray all doors then open and close a few times.
If the lights are on and the door is ajar it will make a steady alarm.
Try spraying WD-40 on the door latch, the part that is on the door itself. The door ajar switch is located in with the latch. Had the same problem, door ajar light on, interior light stays on, and horns toots twice when you lock with remote, to signal door is not closed. Door was shut but truck didn't know it, WD40 fixed it.
change blown fuse for interior light,fuse is found on the inside drivers side kick panel....
bad door ajar switch inside one of the doors its in the striker assy
check the sensor on the door, its probably bad
Because one of your door sensors are broken.
Check if the fuse for your interior lights isn't blown. On many cars the Door Ajar light will come on when there's no power to the interior lights. The dashlight then grounds itself through the interior lights. It depends on the car made. for example Taurus, just lubricate(real good) the lock with wd40, will take care of the problem. some cars have sensors will lock automatically when you close door then will LOCK automatically. if one of the locks is jamed the ajar warning come on. Easiest way lubricate all doors lock you will fine. Good luck
Close it hard
you need to check your fuses first ( sounds like it) they are on underdash (drivers side)
Just spray some wd40 in all the latches. The sensors are in those latches. I had the same problem and it solved it for me
The reason why the door ajar light stays on in a 1999 Nissan Altima could be due to the door switch being stuck. It is stated to spray WD-40 into the latch and that should fix the problem.
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
rubber cover fell off and sensor stays open... most likely
How do you pull the fuse on a 2000 f-150 that controlls the door is ajar light and lights up the cabin and bed light.
some how the tail light wire is touching the ajar wire
because you probably have them on dome lights are a setting on most cars there sould be a switch somewhere on the car. and the ajar is because you probably have a door thats not shutting all the way. thats from my car experience. if you still have trouble look on the owners manual
Go to auto zone and have the altermator checked out.
There are a few different lights on the dashboard on a Pontiac. The meaning of the light are check engine, battery low, put on seat belt and door ajar.
Yes, if your car sits a few days at a time and your cars interior lights periodically come on it will drain your battery.
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
I'm not a mechanic / technician but on a 1997 Ford Explorer I believe that if the gauge panel dimmer switch ( to the right of your headlight switch ) is rotated all the way up it will turn on all the interior courtesy lights when the doors are closed Also , is the " DOOR AJAR " warning light on in your dash to the left of the fuel gauge , if so either a door or the liftgate is slightly ajar or a door ajar switch is sticking , I believe that will also keep the interior lights on
Its your door ajar switch and it cost 17 bucks for the part and $200 for labor to fix. I had mine replace back in 2004. We have recently had the same problem on ours, our advice is to spray WD40 onto all door latches and work it in by opening and closing doors a couple of times, this DOES work and will cost you literally next to nothing!!!
