Mechanic Q: when all the doors are shut the "door ajar" on the dasboard?

when all the doors are shut the "door ajar" on the dasboard stays on which coincide with the interior lights not going out or door lights fading fading out. I believe the culprit is the driver's door;because after shutting or almost slamming it!!(driver'side door),all interior lights shut off.It's becomming annoying;not to mention it might not be good for the electric windows. what do you think is the reason for this and what is the solution.Thank you for your advice!! a proud new used mercury grand marqui owner.

A: when all the doors are shut the "door ajar" on the dasboard?

i looked around the chassis side of the door but did not seem find any kind of visible small button,switch or lever;but will look again. could it be some kind of sensor inside some part of the door like the latch itself? and do you recommend i try to spray silicone spray in the door latches to help the situation;as some have suggested?thanks for your help!!
