Door ajar light in dash stays on

Door ajar light in dash stays on even when all doors are shut tight and dome lights stay on. Had to remove all light bulbs to save battery. Can you tell me where the switch is in the door jam that turns off dash light. Can't seem to find it. Hopping its just stuck or maybe its another problem. Any help will be appreciated.

Oh, the "door ajar lights" and dome lights. My 1995 WindStar had this problem, I almost went crazy! Nobody could find the switch anywhere! So, I tryed to find it by myself!

Well... the switch is incorporated to the lock, inside de door. You have to take off the door´s carpeting and, with a torx key, take off the door lock. The sensor is incased in low of the lock, you can see a couple of wires leaving it. Each door have one or more sensors. The trunk door have 2 sensors, one in each lock.

My WindStar had one sensor of trunk door stopped on "open" position. I took it off, clened and oiled. Done it´s working like a new one!

Good look!

To fix the door ajar and dome light spray wd40 in the door latches. The switch is in there. It fixed mine in just a few minutes.

I personally had this problem, found this thread and tried whata John and world famous said and it worked the first door I tried. All I had to do after i sprayed the latch was shut the door and the light went off. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

Even with a door sensor telling the lights to stay on, they should cut off within a few minutes. Check the "Batter Saver" relay (located on the relay and fuse panel just under the dash far left) and make sure that the points aren't stuck. Also the Generic Electronic Module (GEM) has a time out circuit that drops out the "battery saver" relay after a few minutes to turn the lights off so the battery isn't run down. The time out circuit in the GEM on my 95 Windstar quit working and was keeping the lights on all the time. I had to do some re-wiring to solve the problem of running the battery down.

Thank author of this post/comment"Problem solved"

Wd-40 made miracles. I was on the edge of madness when I met your forum.

My godfather use to say: "When you get good results, thank the Good Lord". Well, I'll thank you all first, then I'll see after for the Lord! Thanks to BillB and all others.
