Default door ajar light staying on?

My door ajar light is staying on, can anyone tell me how to fix this? I don't even know where the sensor is on the truck. Right now to solve my problem I have the light bulb out.

I just had my drivers side switch replaced yesterday (dealership I bought the truck from will be picking up that tab). Also, if you have a 4-door supercab, when you close the rear doors, make certain the top and bottom have latched–just give the door a tug towards the bottom…if it gives, close it harder. That's enough to make the light come on as well.
