Lights staying on

My interior dome light is staying on and my "Door Ajar" light is staying on in my 1999. What can I do to fix this problem? My next question is the cargo lights bulbs are out, does this have anything to do with the dash light staying on?

I did that earlier in the night and the light still stays on. I sprayed the latch in the door and on the door jam. Anything else that I need to do?

There's a door switch acting up. If spraying lube into all the door latches and open/ closing them multiple times doesnt help, then you'll need to figure out which switch it is and replace it. The only way I can think of doing that would be to unplug them one at a time and see when the light goes out.

I've got the same problem starting today and was searching for some help. Light on dash stays on as if a door is open and dome light stays on. I'll try the WD-40 as a first step.

Thanks again to this forum for another quick fix to an otherwise evasive problem. I tried the WD-40 and no more problem.
