Door Ajar Light on?

Sometimes when I know all the doors in my crew cab are closed the Door Ajar light on the dash will stay on and the interior dome light will stay on. I assume this is a door switch going bad or not making contact, where are the door switches and how can I service them?

Thanks, Jon

They are in the door latch and get dirty spray with wd-40 and see if that helps.

I have this issue on my 2002, I just ordered a vehicle security module. I hope this fixes my issue. of course my keyless entry wont work, my auto locks and auto headlights are inop as well. not sure if a 2000 has that module or not but if the wd40 doesn't work atleast you have something else to look at possibly.

WD40 will work-but I've found because it's made from fish oil andthat it tends to attract more debris back in becuase these switches point up-I've found a silicone spray works better-and it's also best for long reliabilty to remove the switches and spray clean and work them to make sure they're clean.
Nothing sucks more than having to do it all the time.
I've done this on many trucks and so-far-so-good. But do what you think is best for you.

icysmooth beat me to it.

wd-40 collects dust like a *****.

i also used a silicone spray, i also used brake clean and then made sure i lubed them up real good.

havent had a problem since then.

GOOD LUCK. =]

That is what ford said was causing my door ajar light, because the switches all worked fine. They wanted like $600 though to get a light to turn off....
