Default Rear door sensors?

So I got that famous "Door Ajar" light on when I drive... sprayed some some stuff and it worked for a while, but in the past 2 weeks it got worse, the light on my dash and the annoying chime come on everytime i go over a bump.. So i got fed up and disconnected both sensors in both doors.... took is for a ride and still same thing happens everytime I go over a bump.... is there sensors in the rear doors? I haven't taken them apart yet but if someone could shine a little light on this I would appreciate it. Thanks!

I dont think there is a sensor

I know you cant shut the driver or passenger door if the half door is not completely shut.

Unless there is a sensor up at top where the half door latches.

I looked a little while ago... and dome light never came on when you open your door... that's why I don't think there is a sensor. On a side note., is there a special way to remove the paneling from those little doors?

Pull up and towards you may need to wiggle it some

to put it back on the easiest is to remove all the push pins and insert them back into the panel then install it back on.

There are door ajar switches at the latches of all four doors. The rear latches are on the bottoms of the doors.

On the bottom of the door there is 3 Torx screws take those off and your door panel and you can pull it up and take it out and clean it. I took mine out and turns out it is broken and can't find one anywhere!
