I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.

if the door ajar light is on then get a can of PB BLASTER at your local parts store and spray all the door latch assembleys really good and open and close each door about ten to fifteen times this will usually free up the ajar switch

I had the same problem with my 2003 F-150. To fix the problem I spayed WD-40 into each door latch, problem resolved!!!

Your door closed switch may be failing. I seem to remember that it might be part of the door latch, otherwise it will be a button in the door jamb area. You need to check the switches with a meter.
