SOURCE: door ajar light remains on
One of your door switches sounds faulty, usually drivers door goes first. There's a little push-in button sticking out on your door post or a small lever type plastic thing where your door meets vehicle, that is your switch. You can try spraying it with contact cleaner or WD-40 & working it in & out by pushing it with your thumb, it may fix it tempoarily, but if not, it will have to be replaced. If your mechanically inclined I can tell you how to test it.

There is a magnet type sensor in the door jamb and door that come together when you close the doors.You have to replace the magnet switch in the door that it is bad in. these newer model Fords are notorious for those particular switches going bad

I had the exact same problem with my 2003 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer. Each time I pressed the rear defrost button, the door adjar light came on. The problem was a broken ground wire in the wiring harness that ran into the drivers side door. Pull the rubber boot back on the wiring harness between the drivers door and and body and look for broken wires. There are a lot of wires so you will have to look very close. I inserted a 1 1/2 inch wire splice to reconnect the black wire and everything now works fine. This splice also fixed the problem with the drivers side- side view mirror light. I have researched and discovered that many Explorers have this problem.
