Spray inside the center door latch with WD40 or silicone lubricant. You might have to remove or partically remove the plastic shield cover the opening. It's the part the door latches too, spray all around inside there and that should allow the switch to release. the switch either dries out or gets dirty and sticks, the spay will loosen and clean it.

possible solution is your door switch is faulty or grounding out. could also be the headlight switch. both of those parts you can get at almost any salvage yard

Could be 3 unrelated problems.
1. The will not start in park. This seems like the DTR ( digital Transmission Range ) Sensor on the side of the automatic trans is not making contact in the Park position.
Quick test, wheel chock at least 2 sets of wheel on a level surface, with truck in park, and a friend pressing the brake pedal, have them turn the key to the run position.
Wait for the theft light to go out, and on the starter motor relay on the firewall, apply +12 V to the small gauge wire ( orange or orange w/ a stripe of color on it ). The starter motor relay will have 2 large battery cable size wires, and a smaller 16 AWG orange ( w or w/o color stripe ) on it. If this starts the truck, the DTR is the problem.
The orange wire runs through the DTR, and will only allow power to the starter relay in park or neutral. You seem to have a problem with the park side of the sensor.
It is on the driver's side of the trans, with a connector to it. Check the connector for water / corrosion prior to ordering a new one.

This may be too obvious, but check the dimmer dial on your dashlights. There's a detent in the off position that will turn all dash and cargo etc lights off...
