The jam switch is located on the latch assymbly in the door. I had this very problem but on the drivers side where there are two switches. I sprayed them with a spray lube and it works perfectly. I did have to remove the door trim to get to it though.

In the Ford Ranger, the light switch can be found in the door, right by the latch. You may need to use some WD-40 to get to work properly. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Spray lubricant in the driver's and passenger door latches. One of the switches in the latch are sticking. Open and close the door several times to free up the switch.

SIMPLE FIX I THINK..TRY SQUIRTING SOME BRAKE CLEANER OR WD-40 INTO THE DOOR OPENING THAT CONNECTS TO THE CAB WHEN YOU SHUT THE DOOR..THE DOOR LIGHT SWITCHES ARE IN THERE AND SOMETIMES IF THEY GET DIRTY THAN CAN LOSE CONNECTION..TRY IT IT IS FREE AND TAKES 2 SECONDS..SPRAY LIBERALLY YOU WONT HURT ANYTHING..
