    door jamb switch removal?

    I am planning on wiring up some led's in my 1995 f150 so that they turn on when the door is open but I can't find way to get to the wire for the door jamb switch to wire it up. Can someone help me find a way to get it out or find where the wires.

    The simplest would be to wire them into the overhead light, which comes on when you open the door. If you plan to do this to all doors, then you'll have some lights coming on when the door is still.

    Need to know how to remove the door jamb switch on both passenger and driver side. The door jamb switch is located on the sides of the dashboard.

    Might take a trip to the LMC Truck website to look at the online catalog for you make and model truck as they have exploded diagrams for most parts, meaning where they fit. Likely have to go under.

    Door Ajar Sensor??? PLEASE HELP?

    I Have a 97 Dodge Stratus and It keeps saying my door is open when its really not. I dont know whether there is a fuse to shut it off for good or if there is something I can do to simply fix it. PLEASE HELP.

    There's a switch in the door jamb that's probably bad. When you open your door does your dome light come on. Try that with each door to see if you can find the one that doesn't work. Only problem.

    door jamb switch 96 taurus?

    I need a new switch - where is it located on this model. I see an area when the door is open with a black encasement - looks like an electrical connection. Is this it or is it under the door panel.

    the door jam switch is located on the door frame, its probably black or white plastic, but some cars have metal ones too. hope this helps.
