Switch is built into door latch lock mechanism. Spray with silicone spray lube. Most of the time this works .Sometimes you have to locate the bad switch and replace it. Considering the drivers door gets used the most, good bet its the one giving you the problem.

Check door switch connection and operation.
If the door switch is part of the door lock mechanism, within the door itself, then remove door panel, disconnect the mechanism's electrical connector and re-check that the interior light no longer comes on with that door ajar. If it doesn't, then you likely have a faulty door lock mechanism, which you will have to replace.
This faulty switch will also have the affect on your random central locking function.


This is not likely connected to the engine performance issue.

Doors unlock when driving


ON THE DOME LIGHT : you will test if the light is ok by turning the dimer for the dash light all the way up until it clicks, if the light come on, then this mean the fuse the circuit and the bulb are ok. also try by opening other doors, if the light come on by opening other door that means than the switch at that specific door is not good, if nothing of this work check all the fuses and make sure they are ok, specially the lighter fuse.

and on the unlucking doors make sure to check for a previous aftermarket alarm in your car, most of the times you wil see a little red light blinking, or have some one with little knowledge to tell you if the car does have one, and have it remove, this might be unlucking the door when you don't want to
