Hey everyone. Just wanted to know how do you disconect the sensor that tells the computer the door is ajar. I've had that light on for a while now and I know its not just a stuck latch. When I checked the cable that connects to the door latch senser it doesn't read a current. Does anyone know how to fix that?
Yeah I tried the wd-40 trick already but it didnt work. I can manualy open and close the latch but it still says door ajar. Im thinking its an electrical issue because it comes ond goes every so often. Its getting on my nerves because when the door ajar signal is triggered it sets off my alarm.

I don't think he wants to fix it right, Project. So, what SSCULLY was saying, Armored, is that the circuit is completed to ground to signal an open door. So, all you have to do is find the right wire and cut it. Since I don't have a wiring diagram for your truck, I can't tell you what wire that is. If you take the door panel off though, you can probably just disconnect the wiring harness to the door latch.

Just went to take a look, to confirm the color codes that Jack was talking about along with reading your post.
If you have the Factory perimeter alarm, that is the door anti theft switch.
If you ground the Dark Green w/ Pink stripe wire to the door latch that will take care alarm issue, but the perimeter alarm will no longer work ( the ground signal to the 97/98 RAP disarms the anti theft module, so even the ign tamper module will no longer work ). This is with a factory perimeter alarm, after market is how ever the system is installed.
The illuminated entry switch shows as a Pink w/ Light green stripe wire to ground ?? Not too sure what this is, does not show in the 99-03 MY trucks ( could be a MY change over in GEM function, as those are 2 different series of GEMs ).
The GEM input for the door ajar switches are L: Black w/ Yellow stripe wire & R: Black w/ Pink stripe wire.
