AU2 Door Ajar

Hi
I wonder if anyone can help me with this problem: My AU2 XR8 in the last day keeps the interior lights on when driving and the car will not lock either with the key or keypad - the button goes down but comes straight back up. Sometimes the door ajar symbol in the LCD panel in the dash shows while driving and when the right hand blinker is used, the interior lights blink in time.
All doors are closed tight including the boot.
It seems that the computer sees that a door is ajar and is confused - I even disconnected the battery for 20 mins but no difference.

The car has been out in the rain in the last couple of days but it has only been light.
Any ideas ??

Check the harness is plugged fully into the body computer module under the dash (it looks after door locks, courtesy lights etc). The check each door light switch (near the door hinge on the A and B pillars are not damaged).

Try this,
open the door, and using a phillips screwdriver, close the latch on the offending door to imitate it being closed.

See if the system works correctly.
If it does, reopen it and then close the door...does it close flush?
If not, then this is your problem....the striker plate in the door jamb is out of alignment...2 causes, either loose or some PERSON slammed the doors....something E series on Doors do not require if properly adjusted..unlike a crappodore

Cheers
Jas

OK it looks like there must have been some rain water get into the electrics as I kept the car in the garage for 2 days until is stopped raining and all is well now.
Here is the tricky question - what part of the electrics got water into it ????

It no doubt will do it again once its been raining and I want to know what area to look at to check what needs to be fixed before it does happen.
