Default Annoying door ajar light

Need some help with my door ajar light and how to fix it. The thing will stay on unless I open the passenger door and slam it shut. Then when I hit any bumps it comes on again and off and so on. Just yesterday everytime I got out of my door the dome light would stay on until I opened the passenger door and slammed it a couple times.

Has anyone had this problem? I have tried wd-40 many times. It seems like te passenger rear door is a little loose on the bottom. Trying to get it working correctly. Any ideas are much appreciated

Bad switch in the door jam? IDK Im bad about removing lights that stay on. My old nissan always had the air bag light on. I just took the bulb out. lol Not the best advice in the world.

I think if you cut the door trigger wire, it's Yellow/Black or Gray/Red @ the GEM module that might solve it FOR GOOD!

Very common problem!
Spray liberal amount of WD-40 on all door switches
No more dome light drain
No more "door ajar"
