On a lot of cars nowadays the door sensors are part of the lock assembly , but not sure on your car .

Re: door ajar light staying on

Try spraying WD40 in the door latches and see if that helps. The switches often get sticky and that helps.

Re: door ajar light staying on

thank you so much logan for the link to the step by step it helped me out alot!!!! i have finished taking all 5 panels off of the doors and back hatch and have checked all 7 sensors and none of them was busted or looked bad in any way so i guess i will have to make sure they are all tight then see what happens. if that still dont fix the issue i guess my next step will be replacing them one by one lol. i dont mind driving without door panels lol (did it when i was younger and redoing my stereo system in my car)

Spray the switches with WD 40 and the problem will more than likely go away.
