THis condition is most likely due to a sticking door ajar pin switch! What you will want to do is open each front door and use a phillips screwdriver to lock the latch mechanism as it would be if the door was closed, then in the lower portion of the latch spray a liberal quantity of WD-40 with a straw and then lift on the outside handle while you cycle the lock mechanism open and closed several times, spray more lubricant and repeat it again! Then do the other door!
