This most likely means one of your door ajar switches are failing, these switches are built into the latch assembly. With doors closed sit inside vehicle and push outward on door hard to see if you can get it to act up, whatever door acts up while pushing on it needs to have latch replaced. It is most likely the drivers door since this is the door that takes the most wear and tear. It is about a 1.5 hour job labor and a $200 part so around $350 total to be done at a shop. Let me know if you have more questions or would like replacement instructions, thanks.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
