My left back door say it is open on the screen panel but the door is closing fine. Because the door thinks it is open it causes my inside lights to stay on and my doors will no automatic lock on the car. I have read the info you put up about doors not closing but I have a different situation and on top of that my warranty just run out. Please any advice

The door jamb pin switch has either failed or come disconnected. The switch is located on the left rear "A" pillar.

Unfortunately, no, we don't, but yes you can. It is quite easy. Locate the switch in the door jamb. Remove the plastic trim. There's usually at least one screw holding it in. If it's a tall piece of trim, you should only need to pop the section near the switch to access the rear of the switch.

The schematic I'm looking at shows the switch to be a normally open switch that closes to ground when the door is opened. This tells me the problem is most likely the connector has come loose or the wire has broken. Use a tight light to see if power is getting to the switch if it's connected. If not, you will need to pop the pillar trim and door sill trims and trace the wire to power.

Pleasure. If you need anything else, let me know. If you have trouble getting the trim pieces off and getting to the switch, take some good pictures and upload them here and I'll walk you through what you need to do.

That door sill piece usually has 2 or 3 sheetmetal screws and a couple clips securing it.
