Why would a dash light indicate that a door is open when the outside temperature is warm but not when cold?

I'm having that problem with my 2001 Ford Ranger. I read that if you spray the latches of both driver's side and passenger's side doors with WD-40, the problem will alleviate itself. I've had the door sensors replaced twice by warranty, but apparently the problem lies in the dirt and grease on the sensor itself.

The outside temperature sensor is on the driver's side next to the fog light (or where the foglight would be). It looks like a black pencil tip sticking out of a little hole in the black plastic.

That would be "indicator lights" - any light that indicates anything. When the light is on, it may mean a piece of equipment is on; when another light is on, it may indicate an error condition. For example, when the battery in your car is running low, a red light will indicate that fact.That would be "indicator lights" - any light that indicates anything.

It would vary with outside conditions.

Outside - if they were inside, you would be blinded by the light.
