Electrical Prob

Howdy,
Here's a quick question for y'all. My cargo lights and interior lights (roof and door) will not go out. Right now the bulbs are out of the sockets so nothing over heats, and I don't drain the battery.
Here's the history:
Last week I had the cab gutted, while I re-did my headliner and rigged some extra stuff. While everything was out I spliced into the hot wire that controls the the lumbar pump for a cell phone charger and a power outlet (cigarette lighter style) for the back seat. When I put everything back I had the problem with the lights staying on. I checked the obvious like making sure the head light switch wasn't cranked over to make the cab lights come on. I banged on the jamb switches in the door thinking that one of those was hung up, now I am out of ideas. Anyone wanna give it a shot?
Thanks,
Craig

Hey Marc,
I don't have that showing (Door ajar). Also I got my Prothane bushing kit today, any suggestions for installing it? Suspension and body bushings. Anyone from Dallas Tx wanna lend a hand? I'll spring for beer and burgers.
Thanks,
Craig

Marc that was my next plan of action. I won't be able to "tinker" again until next week (I work weekends), so I'll see if that fixes it.
See ya'
