2013 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

problem #3

May 262015

Explorer 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,000 miles


We have a 2013 Ford Explorer and the door ajar sensor remained on even after several attempts to shut the passenger door. After looking into it, someone before me had snipped a white wire and grounded it as a potential problem solve...Perhaps it worked for awhile but now, the interior dome/map lights randomly come on (even after the ignition is off and doors are locked), and the passenger door ajar sensor comes on (even after it's been disabled). This vehicle is haunted. SMH

Explorer 4WD 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission

The car is nice, but this sound drives me crazy. The door ajar light is on all the time and I can't lock the car with the remote I am assuming it's the light that is causing the problem. Can anybody help, please?

I have had 1 latch replaced on the driver side under warranty and I've replaced a passenger one. It has started happening again with the passenger side door, so another latch!!!
