    the jettas don't have a nutton, the sensor is actually in the lock itself. either replace the lock or it may be the wiring harness has a break in it.

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.

Sounds like a bad door switch on one of the four doors. The switches have multiple contacts to serve both the dome light and the alarm system. The actual switch button is under a rubber boot with ribbed sides. The switches themselves are under the interior trim behind the doors.
