Open the door, put your window up, and spray WD-40 or CRC 3-36 or whatever in the latch and slam the door a few time. Get the spray inside the door, and angle it up a bit into the latch mechanism.

For most of us who have had this problem (and a lot of us have), this fixes it.

Had the same problem on my old '97. Only in the winter though. The dealer fixed it under warranty, but it sounded exactly like what is covered in the link to TRS posted by birdie2000.

WD-40 Did the trick for me. That is annoying as sh**, the dome light not turning off.
