I had a friend that had the same issue. I had the same issue with my 99 Bonneville the outside door handle and the door latch itself where sticking because of dirt or some other substance. I kept my car very clean and I also cleaned the door jambs after every wash, but still there was a sticking in the latch and handle.
I could be driving down the road and the lights would be on. and I would open the window (with the doors locked and flick the outside handle and the interior lights would turn off. then I knew it was the outside handle that had a censor that was sticking. Why does the out side handle even have a censor? Good question. It seems the more sophisticated our cars become the more probability of issues from the littlest things.

What happens when you remove both switches, and wires? What happens when you use a jumper wire acros both wires, on both doors?

i must say that i feel your pain with this,, my door ajar light does the same thing but my dome light doesn't come on when the doors are open, i have to flick the switch on the dome light to make it come on. In my opion and i stress my opion it saounds like a issue with the body controller, im not sure what ford calls it but it controls all the body functions, i dont think the low coolant light is connected to the body contoller but i dont know this for sure, i think that light is controlled bny the engine ecm. some times a dealer can connect to the body controller and see if there are any fault codes for circuits that it controls and or monitors, also they can reflash or update the configeration and or calibration level cause ford release's fixes for issues all the time, same theory works for any control module on a vehicle. i dont think any of the auto parts stores have the right program to connect to bofy controlers but i could be wrong, worth looking into. i only put up with mine cause i use it as a beater, if you are worried about your dome light staying on and drianing your battery then you could pull out or disconnect the dome lights for the time being, its not a fix but just a band-aid.
