Question about 2005 Nissan Frontier
The door-open indicator is on during this situation; a pull on the driver door makes the lights and indicator go out, even though the door is securely latched; is the door jam switch adjustable? how? thanks
Yes,its adjustible.Pull off the interior cover.Next you'll see a nut that secures the light switch.Loosen that a turn at a time until it is in the proper place.(when the door closes without too much force)When you find your adjusment,tighten it back up.PS.there will be wiring attatched to that,dont damage the connector

It appears that one of the door operated switches for the interior light is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the interior light staying on. It could also be that the "Off/ Door/On" Control switch on the main interior is faulty. Check each door switch by operating manually with finger with door open to see if light goes out.
It this check makes light go out then it could be that one of the door catches is slightly out of adjustment allowing door to sit slightly away from body. Try checking each door for a loose fit by pushing the closed door in and observing if interior light goes off, especially the driver's which gets the most use. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little more. If door catches are tight then it may be that the rubber pad attached to the door that pushes on the door switch button has compressed and is allowing switch to make contact. If these checks don't produce results then there could be a problem with one of the door switches being faulty and making constant contact.
