There is no switch in the door jam itself, so there is not something that can be called a door jam switch. The door ajar switch is located on the backside of the latch mechanism inside the door. You will have to remove the door panel and latch assembly to access it.
I just replaced the door jam switch on my 2000 Expedition, front driver's side. And yes, it is called a door jam switch even though it's not attached directly to the door jam. I bought the new switch for less than $6 plus postage on the internet from rockauto on the internet. The switch is attached to the bottom of the latch assembly -- the part on the inside of the door jam. Here's how to replace it, step by step.
Remove the light cover on the bottom part of the door panel. You push the bottom tab in and up to do that. Then remove the screw holding the recessed light holder. Twist the light holder a quarter turn and push it inside. Now pry up the plastic piece around the latch handle. Remove the door handle by removing the bolt that holds it to the metal linkage part that is bolted inside the door. Also remove another bolt that you can now see inside, which bolt holds on the door panel. Next pry up (toward the sky) the front triangular plastic panel piece near the hinge. Then remove the bolt that you can now see. Pry up the plastic window switch assembly. Unplug the plugs you can now see. Be careful as they break easily. Be patient and slowly pull them apart after pressing down on the little tabs that hold the switch parts together. Lift up the door panel by the handle. Be careful because it is still attached by a wire to the mirror controller (if you're working on the driver's side door). Naturally, disconnect the mirror controller plug. Now pry back the rear half of the protective lining that is between the door panel and the metal door. Now disconnect the window rail by removing the bottom bolt and washer. Tie the window rail up as high as you can. Reach down under the door latch and unplug the door jam switch. You press the upper part of the black plastic part down and then pull the wired end of the plug toward the front of the vehicle. Now twist the door jam switch one quarter turn toward the outside of the door. Now it will come out. Replace the jam switch and follow all these steps in reverse order.
Sadly, the door jam switch I replaced was not the problem. My problem was causing my dome light fuse to burn out, and it turned out to be a screw through a wire holding the bottom light in the door panel. When the Expedition was originally assembled in the Ford plant, the door installer had run a screw right through one of the wires leading to that little light. That little interior light had burned out, and I should have got a clue from that. So I have a new door jam switch, and my old one, which is perfectly good, will be put on trusave.com.
Probably inside the door latch mechanism
inside the door panel
If your interior light is also on, replace the door switch.
The switch can be found under the dash on the passenger side of the vehicle, closest to the door.
The fuel pump inertia switch is in the right front passenger footwell , behind the kick panel ( the kick panel is the interior trim panel in front of the passenger front door )
Motor or switch Bad? open wire somewhere in door jamb area Try holding swiitch with ignition on and slam door

Yes, the 2001 Ford F150 driver's door will fit on the 2001 Ford Expedition.
There is no 1995 ford Expedition!
The door light switch are inside the door locks compartment. If your having problem with the dome lights staying on. Spray WD-40 on all the door locks this will fix the problem. I had the same problem on my 98 Ford Expedition XLT did the WD-40 trick about 3 years ago and still no problems.
Yes , on the 1999 Ford Expedition the fuel pump shut off switch ( inertia switch ) which has a reset button on the top of the switch is located in the front passenger footwell , behind the kick panel ( the kick panel is the interior trim panel just in front of the front door at a persons feet ) If the button on top of the switch has popped up that means that no power is going to the electric fuel pump
I'm not sure if they are the same or not, but I had the same problem with a 2000 Ford Ranger. The fix given on another web site for the Ranger is to spray the door latch (in the hole on the edge of the open door that mates with the latch device on the door jamb) with WD40. If the Expedition system is like the Ranger, the light switch is in door latch & WD40 will fix it for a few months, at least. Hope this works.
You will need a Multimeter to run some test on the switch and the wiring.
there is an emergency door unlock switch under the car to the left of the gas tank
all the door speakers are 6x8 on the 98 ford expedition.
No, there is no similarity. On the 1999 Explorer the fuse panel is on the end of the dash visible with the driver's door open. On the 1999 Expedition the fuse panel is below the dash on the driver's side and it is a different shape.
There is an already answered question that says "how to remove the Ford Expedition door panel", Search by Ford Expedition and you will find the answer you need.
On a 2001 Ford Expedition : The fuel pump shut off switch ( inertia switch ) is in the front passenger footwell , by the kick panel * the kick panel is the interior trim panel , in front of the front door , beside the passengers feet
If you don't mind me asking... Why are you changing the door switch ? If it's sticking or the interior lights are staying on. Try this trick. Spray WD-40 on all door locks including the rear door hatch. This will fix the problem.
There are located inside the door lock. Spray WD-40 on all door jams. This will fix any interior lights from staying on.
The door ajar switch on the 2008 Ford Sport is located inside the door that is mounted on the backside.
On a 1997 Ford Expedition : The fuel pump shut off switch ( inertia switch ) is located in the front passenger footwell , behind ( or by ? ) the kick panel * the kick panel is the interior trim panel , in front of the front door , beside the persons feet
Has the gauge panel dimmer switch , just to the right of your headlight switch , been turned all the way down ? That will keep your interior lights from coming on when you open the door
The switch is part of the door latch
