Have you tried fiddling with the latch inside the door? Could be a sensor in one of them that went bad

The switch gets grimy, or stuck or wet and the lights and door ajar light stay on. Don't believe me, try SEARCHING for it, you'll find the same answer

I take what y'all have to say as gospel for the most part, that makes a lot of sense I'll try it in the morning

It's a common thing with these trucks, I've had it happen with a couple of my F550s
