Check the fuses first. If i remember correctly, there should be a 15 amp fuse in spot #17 in the fuse box under the drivers side dash. This controls the Delayed ACC. COIL, battery saver, and front and rear interior lamps.
Does the car have an aftermarket stereo installed? If the previous owners messed with the wiring to the doors to rewire the speakers it is possible they happened to snip the door ajar wires. It's a long shot, but something could have gone awry with it. Also lay down on your back in the drivers side with your head by the pedals and look up under the dash with a flashlight to see if anything looks modified. some people snip through stupid wires to try to hook up amplifiers and stereos in search of the ignition/remote connection. if you see electrical tape, cuts in the wires, wire caps, etc you should correct it if you're comfortable with it. If not, go ahead and take it to a mechanic to fix the wiring.

There's a little switch that the door pushes in.This switch is visible and accessible. If it has a nut on it, or if it looks like it can be pulled out, then take it out, and cut one or both of the wires. Cap them to prevent them from touching. This will permanently disable the switch.
Else you can replace the switch.
This solution is not good if you are facing the same problem with all the door.
