Answers :

Sounds like you broke the sensor on the door to say if it closed our not. There should be a push button that will push in a say the door is closed. Make sure that isn't damaged, if it is then it will need to be replaced. The best place to buy this part is the dealer unfortunately. When you buy that part ask them for directions on replacing it.

Good Luck,

When all the doors are closed - the warning light for door ajar(drivers side) remains on. Warning comes up on the screen to shut door, however when checked doors are closed.

When changing a bulb in the front passenger side door (courtesy light bulb), It somehow arced (touched positive to ground) and it shorted, now my dome lighs, my cargo lights (exterior) and all of my interior courtesy lights will not work, I have checked all fuses and they are all good, what seems to be the problem here? is it a relay by chance?
