The door ajar switch is sticking, just spray the door lock mechanism on the side of the door with WD-40.My 97 ranger had this problem yrs ago while under warrenty. I took it in and they replaced the door ajar switches. The whole thing would have been around 200. if not under warrenty. Still had to pay 5.00 for the dome light lens it melted. A year later it was staying on again so now i have no interior light. Sucks, but not paying 200plus for a simple little light. I'll try the WD-40.

Many rangers have a micro-switch built into the door latch that grounds when the door is shut. If the switches become dirty, they will cause the dome light, chime, and door ajar light to stay on. A few shots of contact cleaner should do them justice.
