How can I find out which door has the bad door ajar sensor?


Might try closing all doors, then open one at a time and manually depress the switches. Feel them for "click" feeling and see if by depressing fully you can make the light go out. Remember also that you have a switch which turns the lights to on even with all doors closed. And also, the driver's door sees the most use so that switch is the most likely to fail, plus those hinges wear causing the door to not close as well.

Why does Door ajar light on dash stays on when driver's door is closed


Usually a sign the sensor in the latch has failed. The sensor is telling the body computer the door is still open.

My interior lights have been coming on by there self at times. It is draining my battery


Sometimes the sensor on the door gets loose and thinks the door is open. When the car hits a bump the interior lights will come on. You can either use the dimmer dial or turn off the interior lights to make them not turn off when the door opens.

Turn my car off and my light over head wont shut off. what could be the problem 2002 olds bravada


It could be a sensor problem in one of the doors causing the light to remain on. It could also be a broken wire, or wire that is touching metal (grounding out). Try opening and closing the doors to see if that turns the light off. Also check to see if your headlight switch has a control for the interior lights that needs to be turned off.

Interior lights staying on causing dead battery. also interior lights flash off and on when driving


Inside the door jamb is a little plunger the it pushed in when the door is closed. It sounds like it is not working properly. If it was working properly it turns on the interior lights when you open the door and turns them off when you close the door. Hope this helps.

Hazard light and interior lights problem on 2001 A3


the indicator lights flashing constantly might be a warning from the car that all the doors have not been closed properly

after writing this ^^ i think that the system that tells the car if the door is open or closed it damaged or broken
and needs replacing

try leaving all the doors open and lock the car do the indicator lights flash contantly?

you need to get a dianostics done but due to the reson that it is intermmitant the problem will not exist when you get to the garage

check all the sensors that tell the car if the door is open firstly
