Dome lamps operate from door latches. Most common problem is drivers door latch switch. The switch is built into the latch assembly and is accessed by removing door panel. Try spraying WD 40 into latch assembly and opening/closing door several times to see if this corrects the problem. If a 2 door with side opening doors to rear, possible broken wiring to the swing door where it meets the body
Is there perhaps a problem with the dome light switch on the lift gate? Close all the doors, open only the lift gate and find the switch on the lift gate frame (usually a rubber covered "bump") and press it in. You might have a loose wire shorting against the bodywork or the door is not depressing the switch properly.
The dimmer switch controls the dome light. The switches in the door jamb turn the light on when you open the door and off when you close it. Check the position of the dimmer switch on the dash and if it is really close to the brightest setting move it slightly dimmer. It may be touching the switch for dome light constant on as if you move it all the way to the left it locks the light on. Now for the door switches. There are two different types. One type is built into the door latch itself and you would have to replace the door latch to repair it this is very difficult. The other type is a small button in the front of the door jamb that cuts dome power when you close the door. Ckeck to see if these are cracked or crushed and not fully turning the light off. press them in several times to see if they are sticking or loose as they are only held on by one nut and if the nut comes loose the switch moves closer to the light on position. If loose tighten the nut. If you have to replace it remove the kick panel just behind it , remove the nut, and pull it out from behind the panel. reverse to install new switch and careful not to over tighten as these things will snap in half very easily. Hope that solves your dome light worries, good luck and thanks for visiting Fixya.com for all your solutions, Rich
If it has automatic or a domelight that stays on for a while after you shut the door is on a timer relay and that is probably getting bad. As far as the door ajar message there is a switch in the door jam, look and see if you see it. Take wd40 and try to soak the switch try to get it inside the switch.If its incorporated in the door latch spray back inside the door latch real good. Open and close the door several times and see if it works then.
