How do you change out the door ajar switch on a 2004 F350 extended cab? Drivers door. I have tried to WD40 trick with no luck. Thanks for the tips for that. Would anyone have laid out instructions on how to remove and install the new switch.
The switch is installed in the door latch assembly inside of both front doors. It actually comes out with a quarter turn and disconnecting the wire harness. There isn't really anything to keep it from coming out without removing the latch assembly from the door, but I couldn't get a good enough grip on the switch to turn it out. It is in a weird spot at an angle off of the latch so you have to contort your arm up inside the door. The latches aren't hard to remove, it is just a PITA to work inside the door. I don't remember the switches themselves being very expensive. I replaced mine about two years ago and have not had a problem with the door ajar light since.
Thanks for the help. Got the new switch for $15 and had it changed out in 20min. Go figure the dealership ship was going to charge $100(estimated) of course. Yeah right. Anyway thanks for the help.
Gotta love FTE
