door jam switch
Hey guys, I recently replaced the driver's door on my 2001 regular cab ram 1500. The jam switch is now unable to reach the new door, so the chimer & interior light would stay on all the time. I stuck a small but strong round magnet on the door where it meets the jam switch, no more interior light always on or chimer, but if I hit a bump too hard, the interior light flashes at me. It makes me think a greed camera is snapping pics of my plates! I assume it is because the magnet cure is not deep enough. the panel gaps all look great & the door latches perfectly. I would hate to think that I have to remove the panel & punch out the steel from the inside to fix it, or weld on extra steel plating to that area. I know many GM vehicles have adjustable jam switches, but this unit appears to be a push in & snap into place unit with no adjustment. Anyone else dealt with this problem before? Have any ideas? I have been through the service manual back & fourth, it only talks of how to replace it, but no adjustment is shown. Help!
