connector on the door latch is worn out and sends the signal that the door is open or closed

old post, yes, but found this after a search. Have you replaced your switch yet? My driver side is doing the same thing now, and to the point where I've turned my dome light off because it's coming on while driving. Was replacing this switch a PITA?

Off topic: When did it rain?

But yeah, it has to be the latch.
