Sounds like the sensor in the door is broken which would explain why the light stays on. Probably a stupid question but there isn't a switch on the light itself to shut it off is there? Also, you could just remove the bulb so the battery stop going dead.

Try turning the car on all doors closed pressing the dome light button then turning off car and press lock These cars will keep the dome light on if the engine is off but the difference is you can't turn The dome lights off without turning the car back on
