I have a 2001 EX. The door ajar light stays on and all the doors are shut. Even when you drive away the light still stays on for a few. This past weekend it started flickering, alarm would go off, and eventually killed the battery with the interior lights staying on. We just came home from Indiana and while driving the door ajar light would come on and off, luckily the interior lights wouldn't. Any idea what may cause this?

I have had this same problem also in the past. Over time the sensors in the latches can build up with dirt and oil. I used contact cleaner from Radio Shack and cue tips to clean out the latches and then sprayed them with WD40. This solved the problem that I had with the interior lights staying on and draining the batteries. It has been 6 months and no reappearance of this problem.
I had the problem a few months ago, the guys here were very helpful. My problem came from the front drivers door. I was instructed to spray it down serveral times with penetrating oil. After 5 different times of spraying the latch with oil, it finally fixed the problem. After that I sprayed ther rest of my doors and haven't had a problem since. Try that out, it may take a couple of days but it should work.
