Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla
There is a problem with the door switch the door is not pushing the switch in completely. Here is what you do close all the doors, then you open them one at a time with all the other still closed. start with the drivers door. open and look for the pin with that the door touches when you close its on the bottom close to the back of the driver's seat it has a black rubber covering it. Press with your thumb in and see if light goes out. Check all other doors in the same way you will see which door switch is not being pressed in completely when door closes. If you find it a quick fix is to pad the area on the door that makes contact with the switch to push it in, for example you can use one of those round sticky cushions that you use on the metal chair legs to prevent them from scratching your wood floor. However if you can solve the problem in this way you may have to take it to electrical mechanic or I will be able to provide more help. contact me and leave me a feedback. Good LUCK

SOURCE: what does it mean when
in most cases that will mean that one of the door switches is reading incorectly, because it is shorted or open. one of your door switches most likely needs replacing, or it is frozen. you would be best to take it to a dealer so they can use the scan tool to see which door switch is malfunctioning, and then replace it.

It appears that the driver's door operated switch is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the warning light coming on and the beeping noise alerting that the vehicle has a door not closed properly.
It could mean the door catch 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. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little moreand the indications should stop. If door catch is 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 still make contact. If adjusting the door catch and/or fixing rubber do not fix problem then it could be that the door switch or associated wiring is faulty. To check, try operating the switch plunger by hand, with the door open, to see if the light and chime cease. If operating switch manually still does not stop indications then it means that the wire to the door switch is shorting to the body some where. If switch appears to be faulty, you could try swapping it with one of the other door switches to see if that solves your problem
