Why would your car think its doors are always open?

Cars are getting too smart for their own good! The sensor is in the latch on many Fords. But before replacing it try this: Spray the latch with a light lubricant like wd-40, 50-50 etc. Open and close the door a few dozen times, spraying the latch every 5 times or so. This is more typical of a Ranger, but may help you.

Thanks for the ideas. I did indeed spray all four door latches with WD-40 and the problem appears to be fixed. Thanks a lot!

Your Welcome...if your still there!

I have been having this problem for at least a year with my 2001 mustang. It would usually go away but this time the lights would not shut out at all when I parked it. So i sprayed wd-40 into the door and I opened and shut the door, then sprayed some more. It worked perfect. Thank you.

I do not think that this is a spiritual type of answer but morally examples would be: holding doors open always saying please and thank you and being courteous towards anyone you are around

Agoraphobia. *Agoraphobia is the fear of the open doors not the fear of open doors.
