Door ajar warning will not go off even when car is off.

Customer Question

Door ajar warning will not go off even when car is off. Interior turn signal indicator and bright indicator and tire pressure monitor doesn't show up. I think all show up when you start the car. It's a 2011 Kia Sorrento
JA: Is the tire cold or warm? And are you using a decent pressure guage for the reading?
Customer: I've had two instances recently where a tire went visibly low with no warning light. It used to go off when I got below 33 psig but didn't look low. That would change with temperature sonetimes.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I checked all the door buttons for the door ajar and they seem to engage. Not sure where the one for the lift gate is. Had dealer look at this briefly.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Cruise indicator works fine. Other dash functions appear ok.
