Door Ajar

98 Ford Taurus. The door ajar light and dome light are on despite all the doors being closed. I've checked for water, dirt, etc around the hinges and jambs. Older cars had a spring contact button that switched the door ajar lite and dome light on & off. I don't see anything on this car... no contact points, no switches.

What should I be checking for?

the switch on newer vehicles is inside the door on the latching mechanism you might spray them with wd 40 or something similiar and see if that helps, but may need to be replaced to fix.

yep, wd 404 did the trick. Seems ok now. Apparently this is a chronic problem with Fords.
