While driving my 1998 Ford Windstar last night the Door Ajar alarm and Dome
Lights came on. When I arrived home the dome lights remained on after shutting
off the vehicle. All doors were closed. I opened and closed all doors several
times, lightly sanded the contacts on the sliding door then applied WD-40 to
the contacts but the problem continued.
After about 10 minutes or so of fidgeting with the doors and waiting, the
interior dome lights were still on. I restarted the car and shut it off again
and still have the same problem. I pulled the interior light fuse, so not to
drain the battery, but I have NO idea what will actually solve the problem so
it will not re-occur. After respraying the sliding door contacts and rear hatch
switches with more wd-40 the lights went out. If this is a swiths problem how
do i determine which one is faulty? I hope anyone with a more definitive
solution will post a
message or email me.
