door problems....

My car (2001 Wagon, Canadian) intermittently thinks that the drivers
doors is open, audible warning signal comes on, and dome light,if
activated for door. I cannot seem to find the switch - I suspect
there is a short in this switch causing the car to think the door is
coming open - when is the trip switch located?

Also the rear left door latch does not always engage, I have
lubricated, and works manually when the door si open, but seems as
thogh the spring loaded bumper behind the door post on thye lower C
pillar is not providing enough resistance to engage the latch - anyone
else have this problem?

Any advice is welcome.

Re: door problems....

OK. Got the latches fixed on the recall.

The Door Shime switch on the drivers door is still faulty. Looks as
tyhough I will need to remove the door latch post in order to replace
the chime switch. any suggestions / tips on how I sahould approach
this?
