Default door ajar light and buzzer

Hi everyone, just to fyi, I have a 2002 ford ranger supercab, and the door ajar light and buzzer kept going off and the doors are closed. I tryed the wd-40 on the latches as told by other members and it did not work. I had to take off all 4 door panels and cut the wire to the sensor and now the light and buzzer is off finally as it was driving me nuts. It was not hard just took about 1 and a half hours to fix......thanks

thanks, this is exactly what I am going to do, but just on the passengers side because that is where my problem is.

Are your trucks with 4 doors ( 2 reg and 2 1/2 ) I had to take mine back to the dealer 3 times before they got it fixed ended up replacing the switches.

I sprayed everything and now the light went off and the door ajar light does not come on (unless the door is open).

Funny thing is last night I noticed that when I had the door open the light did not come on... so now I have the reverse problem.

My wife drove my truck for a week and said the " door ajar " light kept coming on. I came home at the end of the week and firmly shut the rear half door and front door. No more light. Hmmm. Go figure. Lol.

Yeah ford ranger guys, just a little update on my door ajar problem, and yes a supercab has 4 doors but first, just recently I found out the real problem that was causing the buzzer to go off every bump. The bottom door latch on the back half door was broke and not latching at all so cutting my wires did help but I changed the latch ( $50.00 at ford) now the door closes and works great, so it was doing its job but still I don't need it so I left it disconnected from the door ajar switch. I did take the bulb out of the dash also.
