Open door light is on and the door is closed

Asked by May 11, 2014 at 07:39 PM about the 2011 Honda CR-V SE AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just purchased a 2011 CR-V.  I drove it yesterday for 50 miles.  I went to get in it today and my "door is opened" light came on for the drivers door.  I slam the door and it still doesn't go off.  The car won't lock using the keyfob bcuz the car thinks the door is opened.  The car will lock manually when I hold the handle.  What could this be?
