My 98 Saab is running extremely hot, just replaced radiator and still running extremely hot, the old radiator was singed (white) at the bottom of the radiator, the head gasket was deemed OK, thermostat opens OK. temperature gauge reads normal temperature. Any suggestions appreciated.

I recently aqquired a 1995 model. It had the same problem. In checking I saw that with the drivers door shut, the panel was not depressing the switch. I applied a surface shim to the panel at the contact point which now depresses the switch fully. I still think I might shut it off at the dash if I were going to leave it unattended for any length of time. Hope this helps.

Can you elaborate on the door switch comment.. Is this inside the door panel or a sensor around the perimeter that can be replaced? Same problem as others with the Tahoe/Burb but on "Right Rear Door Ajar"... Thanks!

There's a ncouple different types of door switches on different makes and years of vehicles.
- plunger type switch. If you open the door and look around the complete edge of the opening, if you have a plunger type switch it will have a top that is sticking out. When the door is shut, it makes physical contact with the top and is depressed in. Sometimes the switch is up on the front hinge edge, other times you may find them on the back edge. Sometimes you'll find them as a metal topped plunger, other times a rubber waterproof plunger.
- door latch opener switch. If you don't have one of the above, then most likely it is inside the door itself on the latching mechanism. The latching mechanism is on the back edge of the door, and typically engages a metal post on the cars pillar. You'll have to take the inside door panel off to get to it.

Did a door latch assy. fixed your problem? I having same problem with Rt rear door ajar and I have replaced with a new latch assy. After a long wiring diagnostic I've noticed a body control module under a steering column there is a wire harness connect to BCM, when you wiggle test each wire harness it will go away then it comes back on again.

I think its a senor issue. Happened to me and had to replace the door sensor.
