    It'll be the slam plate (or whatever it's called) - the bit on the B pillar that the door lock clicks into. Sounds like it needs adjusting a small bit to stop that. Do it in small amounts until the light stops coming on.

    Not sure what he meant by push sensor. As far as I'm aware the door closed sensing system works on an electrical contact principle, hence the bit about adjusting the slam plate. I'd certainly try that first, that's what I did when mine popped up one day on the tailgate.

    Could be Ste, buried inside - certainly not easily visible. Maybe once you pop off the two large Torx bolts on the door lock (possibly what Danny was referring to) it'll be visible. My money's still on a small adjustment to the striker plate though.
