My 1997 F-250 does the same thing... It's the sensor in the door or in the drivers kick panel is either shorting out or not connecting properly...

Right, it's the sensors that are located at the door striker area. Spray some WD40 into those areas and open and close the doors a few times until the dome light goes off. The sensors get dirty over time.
