I wanted to pass along my experience with the door ajar sensors with my 03 Ranger 4x4.,,,
I have read many threads on many sites that say to hose down the lower latches with WD 40. It did calm the problem for a time, but alas, it continues to revisit itself every 6 months or so.( been going on for three years now) I hate slamming my doors to get that stupid light to go off my dash and having the dome light on.
My Solution- I removed the back door panels, had to drill a 1 1/2 hole (inside of the panel trim so it would not show) and yanked the Mother s out, dead ended them with wire nuts and tape, Problem solved forever. Courtesy lights come on as they should and turn off when the doors are closed.
There are other threads out there to help you in researching the removal the rear door panels...Let me know if you need my input.
Thanks again to all for the advise I have found here!
