Default Door Ajarrrgh!

So, we have a 2002 Ranger Edge Supercab, 4.0L V6 with manual transmission. We got it used some time ago. Lately the door ajar light comes on a lot, especially when going over bumps. I'm 99% sure the door itself is fine, and generally even stopping and reclosing all of the doors doesn't make the light go out (but another random bump will!). So I think this is a sensor issue instead of a door latch issue. I've learned to ignore the light itself but having the chime and overhead light come on when I hit a pot hole is getting annoying.

Has anyone had this issue before? Is there some way I can find out which door the car thinks is ajar? Where is the door sensor itself?

Thanks!

When you say door latch, you're referring to the notch at the rear of the front doors, correct? Is there anything I should be spraying on the rear doors?

On the driver/passenger door where the post on the door goes in spray it. U can also use electrical connector cleaner.

Same for the back half doors.
