Electrical issue

My car door open light and dome light are coming on when driving. The doors are also locking and unlocking. The lights below the mirrors come on when the car is off.

The door ajar switch in the lock mechanism is possibly sticking and acting like door is open. I have had my dome light stick on and drain the battery. I lubed the switch and got it to function and it fixed it. It's the gray switch with the connector. It is had to get to but shooting light oil in the door latch may get to it.


Could also be broken wires in the driver side door wiring harness.
