    Default urgent help car wont lock!

    As the title suggests, my car wont lock, it thinks the drivers door is open when it is not, iv tried opening and closing it a few times to no avail, when i lock it they just pop straight back up, can anyone help? iv looked for a door plunger switch that is depressed when the door is shut but i can't see one so i wonder how the car knows when the door is shut?
    if anyone can help quickley as my car is unlocked on the driveway or even a temporary solution other than park two cars either side lol !
