I have had the same problem since it was almost new, the dealer said it is the switch in the doors that sticks. I never had it fixed since I would have to leave it there. It's not readily accessible, you have to take the door panel off. All I did was take the bulbs out of the overhead light, the "door ajar" light still will shine, but rather than have a dealer fix it, I can do without the dome light---buy a flashlight, it's cheaper!

just spray light oil in your doorlatch. that worked for me have to do it about once a year

The dome light switch is located inside the door, adjacent to the door latching mechanism at the rear of the door. A common problem with those is that the dome light stays on. This is caused by the switch sticking, and can be remedied by a good spray of WD-40 in the door latch area. Open and close the door a few times and it will usually free itself up.
