Default electrical bug

can you guys tell me where the ground is for the door sensor? Every time I go over a bump the "Door Ajar" light comes on and it beeps. It only stays on for a couple seconds and turns off....also, my dome light does not come on at the same time (just the Door Ajar light on my dash), and when I get into my truck and shut the door the light does not stay on, just want to differentiate between my problem and the problem with the Door Ajar light simply staying on. I did clean the latches on all of my doors with WD40, as well as electrical cleaner.... thanks

I haven't looked for it but given that the door is metal, the sensor ground is probably integrated into its mounting hardware and grounded at the device itself.
