The switch in on the latch itself. When the striker goes into the latch it also trigger the small micro switch.
You can try something like WD40 and spray liberally into the latch and open close it 10 times or so to see if it frees it up.

Check all the fuses under the hood and under the dash. Then try having someone wiggle the liftgate while you "tap" the down button repeatedly. Do not apply too much force to the liftgate.

On the dash it says gate is open but its shut tight.

it could be a sensor out of adjustment or shorted. you will have to find which door is causing the problem and check out the sensor. you can also check for a code in the BCM as this is were it is monitored. it may tell you which door and possibly what set the light.

2004 grand caravan some dome lights stay on rest shut off normally

Is there perhaps a problem with the dome light switch on the lift gate? Close all the doors, open only the lift gate and find the switch on the lift gate frame (usually a rubber covered "bump") and press it in. You might have a loose wire shorting against the bodywork or the door is not depressing the switch properly.
