"Door open" light

Ok guys I know this is real stupid but I am having problems with the pass door not making contact with the sensor's and the dome light stays on. I can't seem to find the sensor's to make the adjustments to fix it. It does go out after moving the truck or it time's out but it is annoying at night until it goes out. Anyone know how to fix this problem? Thanks in advance.

I can't tell what year your truck is, but if its a four door truck, make sure that the extended cab door is shut completely, or you will run into this problem also.

Ehh..My third door is loose on the extended cab. Tried the Wd 40 but I think the latch/switch is shot. Gotta call up the dealer. Bing, bing, door ajar, door ajar..ugh.
