Spray the drivers door latch (in the door, not the post) with WD-40 and slam the door a couple of times. That will free up the switch and cure it 99% of the time.

I also noticed last year when I fixed this problem on my 99' 250. now my new 02 350 dually is doing the same thing, it needed something else so I put a little piece of electrical tape over the door latch bar on the body of the truck it was worn off to the metal grounding out the door light switch and turning it on, hope it helps love this site.
