DOOR AJAR

Ive seen other peoples post about using wd-40 to try and clean the sensors and all that, which ive tried mulitple times, ive tried everything I know how to, and it will still not go away, anyone know another way of getting rid of this so that my lights wont stay on, and wont beep when I have the key turned back for just the radio, is there a wire I can cut?? Any ideas?? thanks!

It sounds like a lot of guys spray from outside of door latch and will work most of the time-but it sounds like you have a good build up on one of them-remember,these switches point up-so it's easy to gunk them up.
While wd40 will work,I've found silicone spray works better because wd40 is fish oil and stays tacky and catches more gunk,while silicone is a dry spray lube.
Some guys even use brake cleaner first-I never had,so I don't know.
You really should remove switch from the latch and clean well-I believe the switch has to be open to make lights go off.
Hope this helps.

beat the "F" outta the switch?..haha no really.. clean it with brake clean really well and use a good silicone spray, works like a charm. not like the door panels are hard to get off and remove the latch anyways!

I would not spray brake cleaner into my locks!

Plastic, glues, and sound deadner don't do well with those solvents, who knows what could be in there

Your swithch could just need to be replaced and no amount of spraying stuff in there is going to fix it. You've already tried that ......

Remove the switch, clean it, and then use silicone spray. For my F150 I removed the interior light bulb and my lights wouldn't stay on from this problem.
