Door ajar light stays on - 2007 Sonata

The door ajar light stays on in my 2007 Sonata even though all doors are tightly closed and locked. The light stays on when the car is running and when the car is off. There is no chime just the light. Is this a sensor problem or a door adjustment issue? I would like to not have to go to the repair shop if at all possible.

Then if you push on the door with your leg it will start ringing. what is going on?

Possible defective door ajar switch. Usually located internal to the door lock mechanism inside the door. I have had some success spraying WD40 inside the lock assembly with the door open and then opening and closing the door several times.

2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed

I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.
