2002 Explorer XLT 4WD how do you replace door ajar sensor

Asked by May 30, 2015 at 09:46 AM about the 2002 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can't lock the SUV either manually or with fob.  Alarm sounds.  Door ajar light has also
started coming on.

1 Answer


The switch is part of the door latching unit inside the door, you will have to find out what door is causing it, sometimes it can be more than one door though, you really need a wiring diagram to find the problems.
