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 couldn't find problem because lights were acting normal. Any suggestions on what I could do myself. Thanks Mark

Hello,

This is a common problem when one of the door latches is going out. With the car running and the doors closed (windows down) wiggle each door open to see if you can get the light to come on. This will show you which latch needs replacement. The interior light switch is in the latch.

Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken
