FORD EXPLORER DOOR PROBLEM

2003 Ford Explorer • 159,000 miles

Ok so my door ajar light stays onand my side veiw mirrors do not work also the door lock button does not work. This is what I have found out, when I had the door open (front drivers door) I held the door lock button down while wiggling the wire harness that is going from the door to the cars body and the doors locked and the light for the door ajar although did not go out right away (door was still open) it didd go out when I closed the door and the mirriors worked, m but only until I shut off the car and opened the door. Since then I can only get the door unloch button to work but can not repeat the orginal result. So here is my question. What would be the most likely problem and what would be on your to check list to troble shoot to the end problem? Another question is that the gas gauge seems to be erratic could this be in conjuction with the first questions problem?

The gas gauge probably is not related, but your other issue sounds like you have broken wires in that harness. Pull back the boot to see the wiring and I am sure you will find something. The repair cannot be in the boot, you have to pull the harness out and repair where it would be in the door and inside the body otherwise the wire will break again
