Default PT thinks a door is open?

My PT thinks that a door is open, so the interior lights won't shut off and it keeps chiming at me. I think it's one of the front doors, but I can't figure out where the switch is to tell that the door is closed.

Any help or suggestions?

Are you sure that the switch on the left handle isnt all the way on? If you turn it to its brightest position the interior lights will come on as if the door is open. The chime may be reminding you to turn it off? [:I]

The rear hatch was the first thing I thought. That happened to me about a day or two after I got the car. You think it's closed but it has to be shut rather firmly. This may not be your problem, but it sure had me going for awhile, wondering why the interior lights wouldn't go off.[xx(]

Mine is actually fine now. It sat a day in the parking lot at work and that night when I left it turned out to be ok then. I think it could be that little moisture may have messed mine up. We had bad rains and that might have gotten in something during my trip to eat out.

Mine, however did not chime when normally the door would be open. I had driven with the hatch open before and it usually does chime and lights stay on. This time when my hatch light came on it did not sound but showed the icon that meant normally it would be open.

Did you have some heavy rain by chance?
