1999 ranger faulty open door light

Hi,

Does anyone know where the open door sensor/switch is on a 99 ranger? I
am getting a false signal when all doors are very well closed and
locked. This causes the cabin light to remain on all the time.

ramon.

Google is your friend....

This has been discussed many times on this group in just the last couple
of months.

The switches are near the door latch mechanism at the rear edge of the
door. Spray contact cleaner or WD-40 into the area, you will probably
see a small hole a nozzle extension will fit into near the latch.
