Please help Expert wanted! 2014 countryman door ajar issue

Hi everyone I have a 2014 countryman, the damn lights won't turn out. I looked at it and realized the computer says the door is open when driving but checked when parked the door and door latches and I cant find the issue. I held down the interior light button for 15 seconds to reset the lights but it only turns them out and the computer still says door ajar passenger rear when driving. Is it the door sensor? Can this be fixed by a fuse? I checked some fuses but didn't find any issues there. If it is a door sensor how much would that cost to fix? and would I need to take it to mini which would cost an arm and a leg. Any advise? I read online to try wd40 but I am afraid of ruining wire etc please help!!!

only fuses are for the circuit not just one door on the circuit so thats not what it is, common things are the wiring between the door and the body that lives in the rubber boot between as such wires can crack with use and age blob of solder would fix that, if your lucky thats all it is,
next bit would be strip door plastic off from inside to get at back of mech for door lock and inter-our light switch

wd 40 and switch cleaner will not harm it worth soaking in it see if it clears it it might do,

Will oversized items (poles, etc.) require one of the back doors to remain ajar? ///manuel MINI Clubman 3 Nov 14th, 2007 06:39 AM
