Car thinks door is open when it is closed
My driver's door has started telling me it is open when it is firmly closed. It is very difficult to drive as the warning 'door open' beeps go constantly, the warning screen on the dash keeps flashing a picture of the open door and the interior lights keep turning on and off. An added complication is that I cannot lock the car as it insists the door is still open.
The fault seems to be the connection in the door that is not touching the car correctly. I have dried it and sprayed with WP40. This made it a little better in as much that it connects when accelerating but starts flashing and beeping every time I use my brakes or drive over a bump. Plus I cannot lock the car.
Interestingly if I lock the doors while driving, it promptly unlocks the door and tells me door is open.
Has anyone else had this problem and fixed it?
