Look at the part on the door jamb. The piece of rubber deteriorates over time and the switch behind it gets damaged. Probabaly moisture and/or dirt. You'll need a star bit to remove the hardware. When you take it out, you'll see the doorjamb switch. When my driver's side broke, I just switched it from the passenger side. Eventually, that one crapped out too. I just took the switches out. The only affect is no door ajar warning and if the headlights are left on, there is no warning chime.
