To temporarily solve the light problem, I taped a washer to the inside of the door where the door hits the plunger on the light switch. A permanent solution would be to drill a hole in the door at this spot and put a self taping screw in that will trigger the switch sooner. I figured out the reason the dome light stayed on is due to the courtesy light timer and the lights would have eventually gone off.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You usually hear clicking when the battery or connection is bad. Since you hear nothing and you have interior power, it is not the battery, alternator, or connection. It appears to be a bad starter, starter solenoid, ignition module, or lock cylinder. Has you key been getting stuck recently? Ever? I would suggest finding your starter and hitting it. When you mess with the panic button, vibrations can trigger the starter, therfore starting the vehicle as you have said. Also, the security/alarm can cause a vehicle to not start also. But first, try hitting the starter. Do you have an alarm light on? Have you tried entering your security code? Let me know please and thanks.

I would unscrew or remove each switch from door jam and disconnect wires till light went out and replace that switch
