spray some wd-40 in the door latch and that should take care of it.

don't use WD-40. You need a sylicon lubrication spray. Just spray it in the door jams on both doors a few times each day and just use them regularly it will go away. My truck had it when I got it and did that for a few days and I haven't had it come back on in over 2 years.
