door ajar light

My new truck has this light on, I've seen alot of people say use penatrating spray on the latches themselves and slam the doors a few times. What exactly does that do? If that doesn't work where can I trace the door switch wires to?

Thanks.

I had that same problem with my 00' F250 ..I laughed when they told me that would fix it..it didn't make since to me that that would work...but it did and it will for you also...

the switch for the door is in the latch appaiently it gets dry and the contacts stick..thats the best that I can figure...as far as tracing the wires?? Goodluck with that.

When my light comes on its the passenger rear door. My daughter gets it shut...but not shut enough I guess. I have her re-open and pull closed a little harder and that seems to help it.

I have sprayed the latch and opening mechanism with WD-40. It seems to help a little, but admitedly I don't drive the truck as much as I used to.

The switches are replacable as they are attached to the latch, but not apart of it. You rotate them and they will come out of the latch. Sometimes after closing the door they become loose. Spraying them does not fix them. The must be replaced.
