TRIBUTE, DOOR AJAR AND INTERIOR LIGHTS STAYING ON

Mazda Other

I have a 2004 mazda tribute, the door ajar light comes on, along with interior lights whenever if wants to. (Even when all doors and back door/window are latched securely) while driving for a while, not all the time, and after i've gotten in to drive off it want shut off, sometime it lasts for hour or so before it goes off, even after I have gotten home, it has been taken to dealership twice, of course they couldnt find problem because lights were acting normal. Any suggestions on what I could do myself. Thanks Mark

Had the same problem in my B2300 truck. Killed my battery one night when the light did not go off.

In my truck, the switches for the dome lights & Door Ajar light are in the door latches. I sprayed both door latches with lubricant (not WD-40) and everything now works normally.
