Door Ajar.

Does anyone know how to fix the sensors in the door that refuse to turn off my door ajar light? I greased them up good but every time I hit a bump the door ajar light goes on and won't turn off. Can I replace them or bypass them?

You gave the door openings a good shot and worked it in by opening and closing a little rough?

That's what worked on mine.

Yep. I'll have to try it again sometime. The door ajar light comes on very sporadically, so Im not too worried about it.

It is a penetrating spray used to free rusted fasteners.

Now take some “White Grease”, use the spray kind, and spray the latch area in the door with it.
The white grease will last longer than PB or WD40.
