Unhappy 98 Sebring JX convertible door locks/interior light's flashing/door ajar bell!

Hi,

My car is locking/unlocking itself,door ajar bell ring's while driving while digital odometer is flashing "door" and clicking sound in the dash from behind the odomter and interior light's are flashing while driving down the road as if the door is open!? I checked the buttons inside the door jam which both seem to be fine,the door's are shutting fine? I pulled the fuse to stop the door lock's from clicking continously but need help!!!

Thanks
E

I'm not entirely sure about your '98, but on my '01 the door ajar switch is built into the latch itself, and is part of the door locking motor. I think yours is the same. Sounds like one of your latches has gone nuts and needs to be replaced.

I have 2 black buttons on the inside of my door jam that press in when the door shuts and they make the door ajar alarm go off when u press them while the door is open! They both seem to work fine as they aren't stuck in! I don't think I have the same system as u b/c my car doesn't even have the keyless entry but I do have power locks! It doesn't act up all the time but when it does it goes nuts!! Go figure...

Usually that kind of button can be adjusted by loosening the nut that holds it to move it in or out so that it makes proper contact when the door shuts. Take a look at yours to see if adjustment is possible. If so, adjust it to see if you can get it to work properly.

Default That happened to me!

On my 97 Jxi convertible. I hit a pothole once and then it got worse and worse until my car would ding and lights would flash on and off all the time. My husband finally removed the door jamb piece altogether. It worked immediately and he showed me that it had just worn down so much that the system couldn't tell if the door was open or closed. I can still drive safely but the interior lights no longer come on when I open the door at night. I just looked on autozone.com and I can buy a replacement for $5. Easy fix!
