Its a fulty door switch or a loose wire to a door switch. Best way to trace it out is with a test light.

I have a 2010 dodge caliber and when I start it there is a weird clicking sound on the right hand side of the dash. It ticks about 5 times then completely stops. There are no unusual lights on and the car...

it could be a stuck vent they open and close when you start a car if the little door in side is stuck the motor that opens and close them will slip and cause a clicking noise as the motor wants to turn

Dash reads back door open when its closed

What vehicle is this? The easy answer is that the door switch is not turning off. Open the door/s and check for a little rubber bump somewhere along the frame. Push it in manually and see it this turns off the warning light. If it doesn't you might have a short to earth somewhere. If it does, you need to adjust the switch outward a little.
Good luck.

Sensor display says there is a door open

Look around inside door frames for little switch, usually looks like a stubby thin finger, with doors open, press them in/out few times, they spring back out when released. Do a door at a time and check dash for warning light. That will tell you if any of the sensors is at fault. Good luck. Red.

Door sensors stuck. its always showing my car door is open. where is it located so I can unstuck it

When you open the door there is a little black plastic rod that comes out of the body of the car. It is usually where the door hinges hook to the body of the car close to the dash area. Youwillhave to remove and replace it.

The light on my dash saying the door is open wont

they have little pin switches on the inside of the door jar's check all these are pushing in and then back out when the door is open, they stick internally sometimes and you have to wd-40 them to free them up.

Also is the door light the same one for the boot? or is that another light? if it is a shared light for both then check the boot lid underside and the small panel on the bottom where your knees would be ensure these are all clean and have a good contact.

If no joy please get back to me.

Dashboard light comes on saying that one door is open but they are all closed even the trunk so dome lights wont come off

It could be that one door switch has fail or has become disconnected. Remove and inspect each door switch in turn the problem should be obvious when you find the faulty one. The door switches are normally mounted behind a small rubber dome in the door surround.

The drivers side door won't close.

open the door , look at the latch on the door , as it get older and non lubricated , the latch can stick in the locked position , i,m going to draw a picture .

when the door is open it should look like the picture , i suggest your door is in the closed position and why it bounces off as you say , take a , lets say a screw driver stick it in where the little lever thats sticking up , push the door open button on the outside door handle , pry that lever forward , if successful try it , and lubricate it , hope my barbaric picture gets the point across .
