Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We had the door open for an extended time and when it was closed the dashboard

that the rear door is open.

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
