The micro switch in the door latch gets gunked up. Spray the heck out of it with WD 40.

Good luck and let us know. :)

The Generic Electronic Module (GEM) is responsible for the following: Door Ajar & Low Washer Fluid warning light, Remote Keyless Entry & Power Door Locks, Power Windows, Courtesy Lamps, all the Door Ajar Switches, including the Lift Gate, Interval Wipers/Washer, Heated Mirrors & Rear Window Defrost, Rear Air Suspension, Warning Chimes and also ties in a bit with the ABS & Air Bag System and maybe aeven a few more. If all of the switches are functioning properly this is the next suspect.
