Door open indicator

99 Taurus. Dash door open light stays on. All doors & trunk fully closed. Dome light stays on. Auto locking feature of putting car in gear does not lock the doors. Pushing the "all lock" button locks all doors
but the driver door lock button pops up.
Suggestions as where to look for cause?

Look for you local Ford or L/M dealer and take your car to them for correct analysis of the problem, WBMA.
The system is receiving a signal that is telling it a door is open, try cleaning the door switches.

There are no little pop switches in the door jam or on the frame. Are you talking about the locking latch on each door?

yes. just spray wd-40 in every latch. a good explanation can be found on by searching google groups for
strange light stays on
there are lots of postings on this issue. the "strange" thread seems to explain things best. ...thehick

I sprayed some De-Oxit 5 electrical contact cleaner into all the locking latches. No more problems.
