It is likely that you have a loose connection at the sensor somewhere between the sensor and the computer. Start by checking the terminations at the door sensor, and if they are tight, use a ohmeter and check the contact resistance for the switch in both open and closed positions. It could be that the switch is shot.

check the door light switch and how it is affected by closing opening of door. look at what happens at the contact point.
It may be something mechanical, or something electronic/electrical
empirical testing should reveal the answer

How do I prevent the interior lights from coming on when driver's door is open - disable the sensor on the driver's door -- 1999 Nissan Quest.

Can you tape a coin or two onto the door at the spot that hits the light switch? If not, just remove the bulbs.

Even though driver door is closed,command screen says Driver Door Ajar.Interior lights stay on,except in drive.Even radio shuts off immediatly after shutting ignition off.Do I need to replace sensor??

Usually the solution to this problem is to use a good penetrating oil and spray HEAVILY the latch mechanism (both doors), let it soak in, and open/close the door 15-20 times-the sensor is in the door and it gets hung up, spraying lubricant on the latches frees it up.

I am a master ford tech and see this concern weekly ! more often then not its a dirty door ajar switch which is located in the latch in the door. get yourself a can of brake cleaner with a straw and a can of wd-40 from a parts store and install the straw in the brake clean now spray the latch liberally then close and open the door six to eight times,next spray the latch with the wd-40 liberally then close and open the door six to eight times, this more often then not will fix the issue. if not you may have a bad switch or a wire broken where the wires past between the body and the door (near the hinges) hope this helps
