probably a bad switch. You can spray some wd40 in each door where the rod coming from the frame goes into the door in the front one by one to narrow down which switch it is. the wd40 might correct it short term as well without having to replace the switch.

I had this happen two years ago leaving work, sucks, it'll turn off after you drive a certain speed for like 10 min, but sucks, when you get off the highway or slow down the light goes back on, also effects the alarm. I have a extended cab, I did the WD-40 spray and it has worked for over years. I opened the passenger door and buried the "grabber" part inside the door with WD-40, opened and shut the door a few times then did it again, worked for me.

Mine did the same thing, there are at least 5 or 6 other threads on here about this issue, some silicone spray and an air blower did the trick for me.

Ironically I'm having the same issues and the mention of rain just caused it to dawn on me. Everytime I wash the truck at place with a pressure washer is when this issue occurs for me. I guess I just have to let it dry out and it'll be good.
