Expert:  A. Penland replied 2 years ago.
There still could be a bad door ajar switch on one of the doors. But the best way is to use a scan tool that can monitor the switches through the Vehicle security module and the instrument cluster. Plus checking for trouble codes in the Vehicle Security Module, the instrument cluster and the dash fuse box.
