Did you try replacing the door ajar switch. They cost about $15.00 from your local auto parts store. It takes about 30 min to take off the assembly and replace the switch.

    I also had this problem because I lived on a dirt road, the sensors are very sensative alot of times taking a Q-tip with some baby oil and just cleaning it will do the trick, I do this about once a month because of all the dust from the dirt road and haven't had any problems since.

Doors are shut close and interior lights stays on

The tiny door "ajar" micro switch that senses the door position (open or closed) is a real problem in these years of all Fords, the switch is twisted into the door latch inside the door, there are 2 switches in the rear tailgate and one for each front door and then a contact switch plate for the side cargo door ( a different design). To replace all these switches is quite a job, but hold on, the dealer can scan the system with a special tool that reads the switch position, with this he can see exactly which switch is the problem, this aves time and money in the long of it. Many independent shops have a similar tool as well that can read the switch position.

Door adjar warning light stays on. Dome and cargo light stays on.

You need to remove the door ajar sensors from the doors and clean and lube them. You must remove the interior door panel then remove the door latch. Then twist the switch out of the latch to work on it.

Door ajar light stays lit when all doors are shut 2005 GMC Canyon

This seems that either of the door switches is/are faulty. Try pushing the switches fully on each plunger switch on each door individually, keeping the other doors closed while you do. See if one of them causes the light to go out. If you do find one turns the light off, it's an adjustment problem with the plunger switch. May still need to be replaced if it won't depress enough with the door closing to turn off.Let us know if you were looking for something more else please accept the suggestion.

Rear access door ajar

What's your question ? Tailgate ajar light lit on the instrument cluster ?
The Body Control Module (BCM) monitors the lift glass and the cargo door ajar switches. When the switch closes, the path to ground is completed, and the BCM sends a class 2 message to the instrument cluster to display the CARGO DOOR AJAR message.There are two ajar switches for the rear door ,a left an a right ,the third switch is for the lift glass ajar switch . All three of these switches splice pack SP410 At ground point G410

(Shouldn't have any readings when door(s) and/or window closed.) It's the opposite . switches are open with door closed , G410
In the Body Harness, Behind the RR quarter trim panel near the D-Pillar
It turns out it has nothing to do with rear door. Something about drivers door actuator. NO IT DOESN"T !!!!
