Interior light stays on????

I have a door sensor that must have gone bad. When I shut the door the dome light stays on and the light that shows the door is open on the dash stays on all the time.

What are the steps to figure out which sensor is bad and is there a sticky or some pictures one can point me to to get this fixed? How does one take the door panels off or do you even need to do this? The truck is a 2002 f-350 crew-cab and I am thinking the driver side rear door is the problem because that is the only door I can open and close without the light getting activated. All the other doors will turn the light on when opened and the truck will shut it off either when driven or after 15 minutes of waiting.


Thanks

When this has happened to me I was always able to fix it by simply spraying wd-40 into the door lock latch assy. Just open the door and spray into the door latch without taking anything apart then open and close the door several times and see it works. My experience has mostly been the drivers door that was at fault but it could be any door . Cheap thing to try before replacing door latches or switches, good luck.
