Okay. No problem. I think I understand just fine now. Just to be clear, when the door is closed the lights should go out. When it is open, the lights turn on. So the only way the computer knows the door is open or closed is the door switch.
If the switch is shorted or not working and the computer thinks the door is open all the time then it will turn the lights on all the time. If the switch is not installed right now then it thinks the doors are open and it will keep the lights on. Plus it looks like that plunger is stuck.
If it were me, I would just replace that switch and if the lights stay on then we either have a short to power or an issue with the BCM/Cluster.
The meaning of a short to power is that the lamp circuit is getting voltage when it should not. This is causing the lamps to stay on when it shouldn't. I would start with the switch and see what happens.
