Usual door ajar problem, quick q.

Okay, so I've done the ol Silicone Lube the latch mech's. Problem Fixed..Problem Fixed..Problem Fixed. Now its at the point that well, nothing wants to fix it. Did a good brake "kleen" job, followed with more lube. Still light is on. Realize that I will probable have to rip out the latch now. My question is, is it pretty much a for sure replace or is the switch able to be tampered with to a working state again? Just havent had time to rip it out and check it yet is all. Thanks in advance. Cheers.

I have heard guys say spray the metal piece on the front of the door by the hinges.
The metal I am talking about is black and stops the door from opening too far.

Could be a wiring issue, check for it being grounded out, at a certain point. Do a live continuity check on the wires running to the door latch, after you remove the door panels.

I pulled mine out, cleaned and sprayed some lube on it. No problems since. It was the driver door for me.

Remove the interior trim panel and vapor shield.You may also partially remove the door glass run channel and remove the rear door glass track for easier access to the latch mechanism.Look for the switch in the latch (2 wire plug-in) and in an upward twisting motion it can be removed (very similar to removing the old 2 pin style miniature bulbs like in the tail lamps).Most times a good cleaning with "Brake Kleen" or similar product will fix the problem.Else-wise the replacement part from Ford is en-expensive.
