after my car starts up the travel/map lights come on and my door ajar light on the dash comes on. i have checked all the doors and yet it still comes on, but after a short period of time they just go off, the doors lock, and the lights go out. i dont understand it, so if aneyone has had this problem or is able to help me, it would be much appreciated.
thank you

Thanx Jorsh!
I'm glad you left the message. My 1998 Taurus was doing about the same thing, Dome Light, Foot lights, and Door Ajar Lights would not turn off I tried lubing the door latches after your post. Now I don't burn my fingers taking the dome light out at night.

Since when is a door a jar? I thought it was a door.

I had that problem last winter. I had to replace the door sensor on the driver's front. The switch cost about $20, and I had to take the door trim apart, and remove the latch mechanism to replace the switch. Usually the sensors just get cold and freeze in the winter.
