What else can cause my door ajar light to stay on other then the door latch switch, on my 2004 Lincoln town car? I was told how to check the door switchs and they are not the problem. Also my trunk ajar warning light won't come on when trunk lid is open and my fuel door warning light won't come on either, could this have anything to do with why my door ajar warning light won't go off?

Occasionally trunk lid won't lock on my a8 2006. When closing the lid is lifted a little on right hand side before falling into place. Even if I turn the central locking on the lid OFF it will open again after a few seconds. I discovered that something is not quite right when during opening the lid is lifted a few centimeters before closing again. It does not seem to make much difference whether I try to open the lid manually, by the remote control or from inside the vehicle.


The locking mechanism either needs replacing or cleaning and lubricating but more often than not it's likely the striker pin needs readjusting to bring the lid fully shut. ... 2006 Audi A8
