I'm guessing it's the driver's door that's keeping the door ajar light on.
The switch is built into your door latch and should be relaceable.

The 2008-11 Focus was a good seller and the Euro one was overrated. Not all compact car buyers care about European car culture, and want mpg, reliability and low costs. The RS version is nice, but expensive and who can afford it?
My 2009 is solid and I don't care that it's not the 2nd gen Euro one, which is ugly, and looks like a shrunken 2005 Ford Five Hundred, which was panned by critics.
My mechanic says they don't see any of these in the shop, which is a good thing.
And purists now have the 2012 'Euro Design' to drool over, so all the whining about the late 00's US Focus is moot.
