How do you know since the door is closed? Assuming it is, it has a bad door switch. Replace it.

    People like you think they’re so smart. If you were even a casual observer, you would know that a large number of wine coolers have glass front doors. Further, you were incorrect to tell him to just automatically replace the switch. In my case, the cooler was not level. That was fixed and the light went off property .

How can I find out which door has the bad door ajar sensor?

Might try closing all doors, then open one at a time and manually depress the switches. Feel them for "click" feeling and see if by depressing fully you can make the light go out. Remember also that you have a switch which turns the lights to on even with all doors closed. And also, the driver's door sees the most use so that switch is the most likely to fail, plus those hinges wear causing the door to not close as well.

My overhead interior lights wont go off

Well, take it back to them as soon as possible. In the mean time check the light switch at the interior light which usually has three settings - "off" at all times - "on" when any door opens - "on" at all times. Try the different switch positions by getting in the car with all doors closed. One setting should switch the light on with the doors initially closed and will remain on even if the doors are then opened or closed. Second setting will be light off with doors are closed but light on when a any door is opened. Third will remain switched off even if any door is opened or closed. If the light can be switched off at one setting but remains on at the two other settings there is a malfunctioning micro switch at one doors. Look for the micro in each of the door frames (not door) and press each it a few times with your finger - if it is stuck it may come loose and work again. Try the switch's settings again. If it doesn't solve the problem either one of the door micros or the light switch may be defective and need to be replaced. Unfortunately this can only be determined by using a multimeter and should be done by a auto electrician or knowledgeable person.

It seems that even with the doors and the hatch closed, the light stays on and the open door light is on. Not sure why

Did you check the glass panel in the hatch was closed properly? I've inadvertently opened it (while trying to open the hatch) and forgot to close it properly, thus keeping the open door light on.

My alarm activates and interior light comes on when door is

Replace the drivers door switch, it's shorting out. It's on the B-pillar below your door latch, covered in rubber that you can pull off to get access to it. You can take it out, just tie a string to the electrical connector and tape it to the door so you don't loose it. The switches are fairly cheap at the dealership.

Lights stay on constantly even when not running; does not run aft

That clip is necessary as it tells the dryer when the door is open and when the door is closed. you will have to get a new door switch.

Interior Light sometimes will not shut off in Ford Ranger Pick up

If I am not mistaken, the plunger is located in the door with the latch. Most of the time you can just pull the door panel off and adjust the switch. After opening and closing the door, they get knocked out of adjustment. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Take care and best wishes.

2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed

I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.

Oven doors will not close properly

Most of these I have seen have to have the hinges and recievers replaced to get the doors to close properly and keep the light off.
