I've purchased a door ajar/dome light switch for my SUV, but can't locate the old one, I'm specifically looking for the driver front one as it is the faulty one.

Brandy Schaffels, Editor at, Inc. Hi Jason, You can download a copy of the Owner's Manual for your 1999 Ford Explorer at the following Ford Owner's link: Hopefully, you get the information you need about replacing your interior dome light switch there. It's usually located somewhere around the interior of the doorjamb. We've seen some information that indicates it can be a broken or faulty ground wire. I also found this video on YouTube which might be helpful for you: If that doesn't help, please find an AskPatty Certified Repair Shop at and they can help you swap out your switch.
