Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer,

My name is Jeff and I am here to try and assist your with your question. The most common thing to cause this problem is a door ajar switch as there is one in each door and the hatch. If one is not closed tight it will cause this problem. Also the switch itself can cause the problem if not working correctly.

ok that didnt fix the issue

If all the doors are closed properly you will need to start disconnecting the wires to the door switches one at a time to check the switches. The switch is part of the latch assembly and need to remove the door panel to access them. Also make sure the dimmer switch is not turned up all the way as it will cause the interior lights to also be on
