Thumbs down Need Help with Door Ajar Light On


I am new to this group.

I have a 2000 Montero Sport Limited Edition, if that is specific enough. The door ajar light is constantly coming on while driving and the doors are closed, and my father replaced 3 of the 5 sensors already. If i open the door and close it while driving, it will go off and the indicator will switch off for about 5 to 10 seconds. After the 5 to 10 seconds though it comes back on making the dome light come on.

Does anyone know what might be causing this to happen?

Make sure the contacts line up or hits the door firmly. Sometimes if the door is misaligned just a bit this happens. I would assume you already know which door gives you this problem.

I honestly don't. I think it is an electrical issue. I was hoping this is a common issue and someone would know what to do exactly.

So why did your father replace 3 of the 5 door sensors? It could be caused by the 2 other sensors he didn’t replace.�� Are door sensors cheap? If it is..try changing the two he left behind and cross your fingers it solves your problem...If it didn’t....wirring to one of the sensors might be cut or frayed and is having an intermitent connection when the car starts moving. Process of elimination to isolate the problem.

Hi man. Have a 2011 strada/triton which i had just recently replaced the remote locking system with a new one as it was having some issues. However after installation, i noticed that the door ajar light symbol is always ON on the dash even though all doors are closed. All 4 door sensors are good and works fine. The open door symbol on the dash doesn't flicker as well. The dome light turns off as well so it's just the dash symbol that stay illuminated all the time. Any ideas what's causing this? Is it more of an internal issue now?thanks for any help
