There is a sensor (usually located on the inside of the door frame) that needs to be pressed in to let the car know that the door is closed. Try pressing and holding the door shut to see if the dome light turns off. If it does and you let go of the door, then the button is not being engaged. Maybe it is stuck. Use some WD-40 on it. As for the stuck door, take off the door panel and spray WD-40 on it to make it easier on the door lock mechanism to operate.
