Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

You either have a door that isn't closing properly, possibly a wiring issue, but it's almost surely a failing door ajar switch in one of the latches.

First make sure all doors are closing properly. The issue may be obvious, but I've seen strikers that were misadjusted far enough that it appeared a door was closed but it was only on the primary latch.

A door ajar switch circuit shorting to ground in the wiring harness is possible but not very likely.

Most likely you have a failing ajar switch in one of the latches. A scan tool can be used to look at data and see which one is showing open, or each latch can be unplugged one at a time to see if the problem will go away and then replace that latch.
