Default Possible cause

I would say by your description, you may have a faulty door lock actuator or sensor. I am not very familiar with the system in the ls400, but one of the door lock actuators may not be recognizing tha the door s closed. Someone else is probably more familiar with the system and can help out I'm sure. Just trying to throw out an idea.

When the door is open depress the button on the jamb and if the lights do not go off you need to replace the switch. Regardless of the year it will look like this. Its an easy part to replace they do go bad.

Like I said, I read all up on this stuff.This pic is for 94 and older.95 and up door jam switch are totally different.There is no physical switch by the door.I am tryna find out if there is a switch/ computer that controls the locking mechanism inside the door panel
