"Advanced" door ajar fix?

I keep spraying the door sensor with wd-40 as the posts say, but I will drive, hit a bump and the door ajar light comes on. Drives me nuts! I have to stop and slam my door again.

Is there a way to disconnect this sensor and fool the truck into thinking the door is always closed?

BTW - only happens on the drivers side suicide door.

Take the connector off that switch and see if the light is on.

If it is, cut and bend a piece off wire and connect the two pins.

Pretty sure there's only two wires. If there's three, experiment.

Insulate the jumper well so it can't short anywhere, secure it.

Best I can tell you, off the top of my head. Mine's 2 door.

It's cold up here in Morgantown, WV.

there are also door ajar switches in the suicide doors in the bottom latch-my 2 little doors needed latch adjustments when closing to make the door ajar light work properly
