Interior Lights Causing Battery to Die

Hi guys,

I need your help again. Awhile ago you guys helped me with my door open light. The basic solution was that I needed to clean the latches and lube them. That seemed to work for awhile, but now its back and actually drained the batteries in my ex. My question is whats the cost of those sensors and related parts, how difficult is it to change them out? Also, when I bought my ex, I bought a one year warranty and it has a $100 deductible, should I just take it to the dealer? I'm kind of leaning that way, but I always think I can fix everything. I've pretty much isolated the problem to my rear doors.

Thanks

I just read a post that said to clean them with brake clean then use a dry lube. if you oil them the will collect dirt faster.

yeah thats the one where I got the initial info. I used a dry silicone lube and seemed to work well, but I think my problem is deeper now.
