I have a 2001 f-150. The dome light, inside door lights, and the light facing the bed stay on when the doors are closed. The door ajar light goes off when the doors close. It does this while running and off just the same. I checked the fuse and the relay I was recently hit pretty badly on the passenger side. The passenger door was replaced. The problem started roughly a month after I got my truck back from the shop.

Do you
have the same problem?

If the door ajar light comes on, the contact switch inside the door, at the claw it either no good or its not being activated. Coyld be striker alignment.

Was this a used door? If yes, try spraying the top inside of the claw with brakkleen then white lube, do each 5 or 6 times and. Open. And close the door to work it in.
