Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The issue, this case that you are having is going to be a faulty door ajar switch. The door ajar switch is apart of the door latch assembly. When the door is open, the switch send a signal to the BCM and the BCM displays this information on the dash. Here, I am attaching the electrical information for the circuits to give you a better understanding. Also, I am attaching testing information for this issue. The best way to test for this issue and locate the faulty sensor is with a scan tool. The scan too will indicate the fault. Once the faulty switch has been located, then you will need to replace it to cure the issue.
