So this morning I went to drop off my siblings at school, and when they left the door lights wouldnt go off. After a few minutes I stopped at a gas station and checked all the doors, and the light was still on after I slammed them all even the trunk just to check. Anyone have an idea on what it is?

The contacts in the door latch are probably dirty or grimed up...spray some WD-40 in the door latches...this will clear up the dirt....but is only at temporary fix...you'll need to spray something like white lithium grease to keep them from getting dirt buildup again....

You should be able to get it at any decent auto parts store.

On a side note I can now lock all my doors using my key. I could unlock all my doors and lock them all by turning the key in the passenger door, but I could only unlock the doors when using my driver's door. For some reason I can now lock all doors when I turn the key in the drivers door.
