I would check the contacts on all doors to make sure one is not broken/stuck/ or not making good contact with the door.

Eric, your suggestioned worked. i located the switch and wiggled the switch within the rubber tip and WAH-LA it worked. now when i shut the door the "open door icon" is gone from dash board. thank you, as you probably save me a few dollars by doing this myself . thanks again, Becky
