Hello. My name is***** will be helping you today. There is a door ajar switch built-in to the lock assembly. It can be serviced separately. That is your problem. I have had to replace several of them for that reason.

You will have to remove the door panel and the latch assembly in order to replace the switch. If you would like I can send you the repair information to remove the latch assembly. And remember please give me a five star rating we can still continue the conversation if we need to.
