Hmmm door sensor

hi sorry to introduce my self with a question
i've just bought my car and have a problem, i think, with the sensor on the drivers door. the linernal light keeps flashing and when this happens the warning light on the dash flashes to show that the door is open. i took the bulb out of the internal light and this was fine. now the central locking is playing up and i presume it is to do with the sensor again. any advice please

Re: door sensor

Take the little switch out of the door jamb. It's held in with a couple of screws. Water gets behind the rubber boot and they get filled with crud over the years, so the copper contacts corrode. A new one is 50p or something, so don't even bother trying to clean it up (tough it'll probably fall apart when you take it out anyway).
