Unhappy overhead computer!! and door.

I am new to the site so bear with me... I have a 2003 F250 supercrew and all of a sudden a few things have went south on me. First off my passengers side door switch has never worked until about 2 weeks ago. But instead of working right it tells me my door is open when its closed and it tells me that my door is closed when its open... I have tried the wd-40 trick already but it hasnt worked. Anyone have any ideas?? Then yesterday i was driving and realized that my therm., compass, mpg computer wasnt working. Just wonder if this could all be linked to me not have my cab light covers on and it has been raining lately. and does anyone know what fuse number the computer is maybe its just the fuse but i havent gotten around to checking it yet.

No cab light covers is bad juju. Put them things on now! Water can easily get into those parts and corrode them. Do eet neow!

Update, cab lights were on a while back. Took the computer out and all it needed was a little soldering. As for the door ajar switch. Well I am just going to have to get a new one it looks like.... Any suggestions on a place that has them?
