Hi, my name is ***** ***** is caused by one of the door ajar sensor being bad, and the only way to tell which one it is, is to disconnect each one, individually until the light goes out, are you planning on repairing this your self?

ok, you will need to start with the drivers door, remove the trim panel and disconnect the sensor, then start it and see if the light is on, most of the time its the drivers door that does this, since it is used more, if the light goes out, then replace that one, if not, then continue to the other doors,Tim

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
