Default Door ajar!!! NO it's NOT!!!

My interior Dome light and door ajar light stay on. I have shut the doors numerous times but still the light stays on. It has been doing this for about 2 months now. Any ideas?

simple fix, either change the interior door switch on the doors or spray some wd40 on the door latch mechanism, the switch is combined with the latch and it gets stuck, specially in the winter time.
I'll always have a job! keeping my fords running!

Replacing the sensor in the door can be a pain in the a$$, if you're in a pinch you could always just pull the fuse till you get some time to take further action. I too have heard that spraying the jam's latching mechanism with something like WD40, or putting some graphite in there will also help.

I had been having this same problem since I got my ranger a few months ago. Just got some WD40 and worked the door for a few minutes (spray open close) that door ajar light turned right off.
