Door locks/dome light/door ajar all seem to be crossed in my 2004 Explorer
FOB and keyless entry pad stopped working years ago. Now when I open the driver's side door with key, the driver's side door is completely dead. I have to reach to the passenger side door to unlock the rest of the doors. When the engine is started, door ajar light is on (no door is ajar) and dome lights are on. Driver's side door is completely dead until I drive about 30 feet. Then door ajar goes off, dome lights go off, and all lock buttons on the driver's door start to work. When I turn off the car, everything goes completely dead and driver's side locks no longer work. Also, dome lights stay on for about 10 minutes. Is this crossed wires? This just started happening about a month ago.
Sounds more like a loose plug or bad door ajar switch. Start on driver's side
Try squeezing and wiggling the tunnel between the door and the body while you watch the dome lights and the other stuff, if it flickers or works then quits you have found your problem, the tunnel will have to be rewired. You still my have other problem that you have stated and are common with this rig, like door ajar switches keyless entry pad failure, but you won't really know until you get in there.
