I had the same issue. Spraying WD-40 inside the latching mechanism and actuating the unit repeatedly seems to have done the trick.
Simulate closing the door with a screwdriver on the latch saves some time & effort.

The dome lights on the rear mirror and ceiling lights will not turn off when you shut the car off


This is a problem caused by a sticking door ajar/courtesy light switch. The switch signal goes to the BCM (body control module) and that turns on the interior lights. Since each door has this switch you need to have the dealer use a special tool to scan the module inputs from the door switches and see which door switch is causing the lights to stay on.

Why does the interior light will not go off and the door ajar signal stays on


This is caused by one or more of the door latch mounted door ajar switchs being defective. You must remove the door panel and replace the switch, it is located at the rear of the door latch, it twists into the latch.

How do i slove my door ajar problem


Try spraying wd40 into each door latch. Do it one at a time then open and close the door about a dozen times spray some more in there after about 6 open and closes. Do this with each door and even the hatch. This should clear ya right up.

Interior lights stay on when the switch is off and car is parked


is the door ajar light on sometimes also when driving? I had a similar problem with the light staying on. I determined that it was the passenger front door latch sticking. I opened the door, then took a screwdriver to push the latch shut on the door jamb. (Make the truck think the door is shut even though it is open). Then lubricate that jamb and pull the handle open to open the door. Keep doing this (closing with screwdriver and opening with handle) until the latch works freely. This took care of my light and door ajar problem.

Interior lights, lights on rearview mirrow aren't shutting off.


Spray some WD40 into the latches on the side of the doors then open and close the doors several times firmly.This will unstick the door adjar switch most of the time.Start with drivers door first.
