The door ajar/dome light switches are built into the door latches in most new vehicles now. For a temporary fix spray P.B. Blaster or WD-40 into the latches then open and close them repeatedly about 10-15 times. Start with the drivers door and work around the truck but don't forget the tailgate latch. This may work but like I said for a temporary fix. Eventually the latch(s) will have to be replaced.
