You'll need to replace the door latch assembly. Not very difficult - the door panel has 3-5 screws in it (all hidden so you'll have to find them), once removed the panel will pop of with enough force - just be careful of the electrical connectors for the window and door lock switch. Remove all the rods from the actuator, remove the Torx screws holding it to the door body, and pull it out. Disconnect electrical connector...and reverse above procedure to reinstall.

door switch have to find out which door is the cause and replace switch not sure on exact location on a 90 silverado could intergraded with the latch or a push style located in the door frame if they are located in the frame push the button one at a time and hopefully light goes out sometimes pushing switch manually will turn lights out but won't always go out with door being closed hope this helps

The door jam,the metal part on the door that catches the other metal part to allow it to close right sounds like its messed up, ita a part on the door part that could just need to be pushed up and oiled so it will catch right to close.I've had that problem so its worth a shot.

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.

Rear door won't stay shut


Check the latch mechanism on the door. There is a piece of the latch that closes around the clasp on the door frame. sometimes this closes when the door is open and you can't shut the door. Take a screw driver and flip this latch piece open and close the door.
