Default Dome light/door ajar dash light flicker during WOT?

2003 WRX wagon. During WOT pulls I sometimes get the door ajar indicator on the gauge cluster flashing on and off as well as the dome light flickering on.

I've checked all the doors and rear hatch and everything will be closed tightly when this has occurred.

It's an intermittent issue. I have had some trouble recently with my battery terminals due to their age but I have fixed that problem, I think.

Anyone else ever experience anything like this?

You have a weak door switch somewhere. Examine all the switches and wiring for corrosion or damage, clean/adjust/replace as necessary.

I agree with Mulder's advice. I would suspect the driver side door first since it gets the most use. Dirty switch contacts most likely.

Update. I narrowed the issue down to the driver's side door. Installed a new OEM switch and problem is resolved.

I had the same issue in my 06 Sti. Checked all my sensors and no corrosion/damage/interference. Seems to have gone away for now. I think its due to the fact that my rear drivers door wont ever close all the way. Guess I need to re-align the door pins.

Default Loose door latch...

I have a 2004 Outback Sport that had a similar issue. The screws to the door latch would come loose and allow the door to shift a little in turns when I had my leg against the door. Some Locktite fixed the issue.
