If spraying WD40 into the latch didn't fix it then it has to be a bad switch or wiring to the switch.
You will have to pull door panel/s to access them and check them from here.I would probably start at drivers door since it usually has the most use.
Pull panel and look at the latch and you will see a 2 wire connector to it drivers side wire will be LG/YE and BK,passenger door is PK/LB and BK and if it is a crew cab rear doors are in series right side is GY/OG and BK/WH which this wire feeds the switch in left rear and other wire on drivers side is BK.
Disconnect the connector and see if light goes out. That will be the bad one. then you have to remove the latch to replace the switch.

Dorr ajar always on what should i going to do to fix it before any major problem will happen

This is a lite on, when the door jam switch in not in far enough to cut the ground circuit. If you have slack in the door with it closed .You may have to adjust the door latch on the door pillor post! You may check to see if you can rattle the door while it is closed if so, it needs the adjustment corrected.Otherwise it may be the door jam switch itself,at fault.

Door ajar light stays lit when all doors are shut 2005 GMC Canyon

This seems that either of the door switches is/are faulty. Try pushing the switches fully on each plunger switch on each door individually, keeping the other doors closed while you do. See if one of them causes the light to go out. If you do find one turns the light off, it's an adjustment problem with the plunger switch. May still need to be replaced if it won't depress enough with the door closing to turn off.Let us know if you were looking for something more else please accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting
