Default door ajar light

2005 forenza s wagon. The door ajar light stays on and the dome light as well. It came on while driving one day and now wont got off. I have pulled out and checked all the door switches and they are good. What else can I check? Does anyone know which fuse controls the door switches?

Try disconnecting all four door switches and check that the door ajar light turns off. If it still does not go off, you might have a short to ground in the purple(violet) wire leading to the room light controller I.C.
If no short present, it could be a bad Light Controller I.C.
If there IS a short to ground on the purple wire, you should probably check the S301 connector behind the left kick panel. These "splice packs" are the source of many electrical woes in our cars.
I'm sorry I can not be too specific at this time, as the online manual is, err, offline ATM...
I will attach the room lamp wiring diagram to this post.
Any questions, feel free to ask. Good luck.

Sweetness. Thanks for the good advice! And thanks for the wiring diagram.

Sadly, though, the problem is not consistent. Currently, the light works properly. I will need to wait until it shows itself again.

You mentioned the splice pack under the left kick panel. Does this pack have anything to do with the daytime running lights or the air bags?

No. DRL is on splice pack S201 behind the cluster.
No splice packs in the airbag circuit (thank goodness!)

Looks like the online manual is back online (yay!).

Have a look here:
Daewoo Service Manual

Navigate to:
electrical wiring diagrams
LHD - left hand drive (or RHD if that's your case)
electrical wiring diagrams
lamp (map and room) circuit
select the appropriate section, sun roof or no, light decay or no

after the diagrams, there is a detailed connector identification with their respective pinouts and colors.

I feel ya, intermittent failures are a right pain in the ...

The light is on again.

I checked the pack behind the kick panel. It looks fine. I ran my fingers against it, hoping it would cause a flicker in the light. No dice. Is there a specific way to check the splice pack? What about checking for shorts along the purple wire? Also, I assume the light controller is in the dome light. I tried to take the dome light off but couldn't, at least not without what seems to be excessive force. Any ideas there?

I'm looking at the diagrams. What does "W/H" stand for? How about "Ter"? and what about "I.P"?

I figured that "W/H" means "Wiring Harness".

IP = Instrument Panel

The way to check any splice pack, besides any visible melting or charred appearance, is to check the individual wires for continuity with a multimeter.
Same color wires *should* be internally connected within the splice pack, as that is what it is for. I emphasize "should" because that is usually where they fail.

In the case of the S301 splice pack, the purple (violet) wires should measure zero (or very near zero) resistance between each other. Use a digital multimeter on the diode or continuity setting and it should beep or show zero on the screen. If your meter does not have a diode function, use the ohms function and verify the reading between each wire is zero or very near zero.

If there are any dubious readings on wires that should be connected within the splice pack, cut them at the splice pack, peel off some insulation at the ends, wrap them together tightly and install a wire connector on the end. Be sure to cover the connection with electrical tape afterwards, for extra protection.

*** Be 100% certain that the wires you connect are indeed, meant to be connected. Check and re-check the diagram before you connect any wires together. ***

Below is a diagram of the inner connections of the S301 splice pack.

Thanks, p1nky. I figured checking the wires with a multimeter was the way to do it. I was more interested in knowing up to do the test. Like, do I just stick the red lead into the hole and test off of ground? Do I have to pull wires out? And what about the light controller? Is it located in the dome light? If so, how to I get the dome light off? it seem really hard to pull it out. I didn't want to force it. Does it slide sideways or something?
