this happened TODAY. I have NO idea why this happened so I'm posting this problem right here.

The LIGHT inside my car goes ON while I'm DRIVING. ALL the doors r closed and crap.. and yet the light still goes on outta nowhere.. So I parked my car and shut my car off.. made sure everything was off (meaning headlights and all that..) so I closed the doors and the light did not go off until like 10-15 minutes later.. whats up w/ my car? I'm starting get worried...

You probably need to either lubricate your door ajar switches (located in each door latch) or replace them. They're about $15 but can be a pain in the butt to replace. Lubricating them with wd-40 will help for a little while, but they eventually get even dirtier from the WD-40 and stick even more.

I dont think its a sticking switch. There is problem with 1 of the switches. Its common. Alot of them have to be replaced. Didnt matter what vehicle it was. At the dealer we stocked 20 of them. Somehow the inside of the switch allows current to come through and BOING the light goes on.
