I had a 95 ranger, same problem. Anyway spraying dw40 upward in the latch
worked. The sensor was just above the latch on the ranger.
It is a common problem with many fords so just do a search on google. You'll
have no shortage of answers.
If it's a 4-door and a rear door that keeps the light on then try a little
more force closing that door. On my 2000 Ranger the rear doors appear to be
closed and latched, but not toght like they should be so the light comes on.
You can tell pulling on the door a little and seeing it move a bit at the
bottom. Slam it good and it latches tight, doesn't move and the light stays
off. My experience anyway.
Thanks all. I'll try the WD-40 and I now know where the switch is located
if that doesn't work. ( I should have included that's it's a 2-door. )
