    I can't seem to figure out where this is coming from. As soon as I
    begin moving, the car registers a door that is open, dings, and tries
    to lock the doors. Then it just does it constantly for a while.
    Sometimes it never stops and othertimes it stops on it's own. Some
    days I can be driving along fine and then hit the brakes and it
    happens, other days I can make it stop by cracking a window on the
    front passenger door. Whatever I do doesn't make it stop all the time
    though. The only thing I have found that works almost always is to
    crack the door open to where it is still latched but open. Then the
    door is seen as open but the dinger stops trying to go off. I am
    really torn between the plunger sensor on the door jambs or the power
    locks. I have tried to remove fuses to things to see if the dinging
    goes away and have found nothing yet. I do not want to take this to a
    shop because it will be a long time to troubleshoot and then still
    need to get fixed. This is a commuter car for me and I drive about 1
    hour each way to work each day so the constant dinging is really
    driving me nuts. Thank goodness for the radio. Any help is
    graciously accepted.

    I had a similar problem on my Neon. The dome light would flicker & the Door
    Ajar light would also flicker. Turned out to be a missing rubber bumper on the
    door that was supposed to insure the plunger switch was closed. Hope this helps.

    x-no-archive: yes

    It's the door switch. Costs about $7.00 at the dealer. Takes less than 2 min
    to replace. Good luck.
