Door sensors

I have a 2000 Ford Excursion. In older vehicles, doors had a plunger
switch to sense an open door. I cannot find any switch on the door or
frame. Where is the switch/sensor for an open door; can it be bypassed
or can the "door open" alarm be turned off?

Thanks, Norris

It's built into the latch.

I also had this problem with my 2000 F-150 try spraying WD40 into the latch
on the door then opening and closing the door ten times. Repeat the process
4 or 5 times. This should solve your problem.
