1999 Taurus SE--open door indication

I wish my Taurus would stop giving me technical/repair challenges!!!

Today the "door open" lamp along with the inside ceiling lamp came on with all the doors secured. Anyone ever have a similar problem? Any ideas where the "open door" sensors are located? I removed the ceiling lamp to prevent running the battery down.

Spray some WD40 within the lock mechanisms, spray in there good then open and close the door a few times, that should fix your problem.

Very common issue.

JWKO-------------YOU DA MAN!!!!

I sprayed some PB Blaster into the suspect door (driver's), got into the car, closed the door and THE LIGHT WAS OUT!!!

Well, that certainly save me grief and hard work!!

Thanks for this important suggestion.
