I agree, the plastic pin on mine was broken under the rubber on the door jamb switch. But I would check the wiring behind it also. Easy to pull off with a Philips large head screwdriver.
Cheap fix..$3 or $4.

Interior lights not turning off, door ajar indicator light on and no doors ajar. what to do?

Without knowing what year, make, and model of vehicle you have it is almost impossible to answer this question and provide you with any assistance. Most newer cars have the signal switch built into the door latch itself, while older cars will have a switch in the door jamb. But you definitely have a problem with the switch not making connection. Either a bad switch or bad wire to or from the switch.

Check the door switch in the door jamb where the door hinges are located. You may have a bad switch. If you can see the tab for the door switch depress it with your finger and see if the door and interior lights shut off. Check each switch on each door until you find the bad one.
