My rear door sensor says the door is open but it is not. How to fix?


Asked by Jun 07, 2014 at 10:43 PM about the 2004 Lexus GX 470 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We had the door open for an extended time and when it was closed the dashboard
warning light remained on, the interior lights are on and if I try to drive I have the warning
that the rear door is open.

1 Answer


just an Idea, I have a 1963 thunderbird with similar door on/off switches, these of mine were sealed so before buying a new one I drilled a small hole in the contact end of the barrel, squirted in some electrical contact oil, swish this around then re checked. I had to repeat to get a good contact
