A switch somewhere in the door, if anyone knows where I'd like to know too. I can't get my lights outside in the 3rd brake light to work. Changed bulbs, nothing.

The dome light might be the door switch. Its part of the door latch. Spray it with some lubricant (not wd40, it attracts dirt) till it comes out the bottom of the door. Do that to both and see if that fixes it. You never put the year of your truck down. I had 2 97's that did the same thing and it was the GEM module, but I would try the latch, its the cheap easier fix.

My truck was doing this a few years ago. I sprayed WD-40 on it and it helped for a while but it came back. I ended up adjusting the latch with a flathead screwdriver by pushing it outwards a little bit so that when the door shut, it would push the latch in further and I haven't had the problem since.
