Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

These issues are all happening because of activity on a door ajar circuit. The problem could be one of the ajar circuits shorting to ground in the harness but that's most likely not the case. Odds are one of the doors isn't closing correctly or one of the ajar switches is bad. If no visible problems can be found with the switches or with the doors or adjustments, then odds are one of the switches is bad. They can be unplugged one at a time to see when the problems stop and then that switch can be replaced, but care needs to be taken to not allow the ajar switch wiring to be lost in the door jamb.
