Door ajar light on 03 EX

My 03 EX door ajar light keeps coming on. I've narrowed it down to the rear passenger side door. It wouldn't really bother me except that the running board lights stay on with truck shut off. Can I just unplug the switch for that door? How hard is it to remove the door panel? We are leaving Mon night on a trip and I don't eant the batteries going dead from the running board lights.

To friggin lazy retype my sig again. Damn hackers.

Have you tried spraying WD40 in the door latch? This has happened to mine and several others on here. Just spray WD40 in the latch, it may take a few times, but it should free up and turn off the light.

light will go out when you hit 2000 rpm, or tranny shifts to 2nd gear.
with truck shut off lights will go out in 15 min,
but try spraying the latches, usuall that will free the switch up it worked on my 99 that was stuck for years

I sprayed wd40 on it and now the switch doesn't work at all,which is fine as long as the damn lights aren't on. I suspect the switch would've quit even without the wd40. Strange part was that for about 5min after spraying it the switch worked backwards. Light would go out with door open, come on with it closed. I pulled the panel off and couldn't tell which was the switch. Is it at the bottom of latch or behind it? THX

the switch is at the very bottom of the latch. I cant remember but im pretty sure to have to remove the three latch screws to be able to turn and remove the switch.
