Door Ajar Light Issues

So I've had this car about a year now and have had minimal problems with it but since around the beginning of winter my door ajar light has been coming on. It goes off randomly or flickers when I hit a bump and my dome light comes on (so I have that switched off all the time.) It will also go off if I open and close a door but it usually comes back on later. I've been waiting for warm weather to come so I can see if it goes away with the cold, but I'm getting a winter storm warning so that won't be happening soon.

Has anyone else here had this issue? What could it be? I'm not the greatest with electrical issues so I may have to have a shop take care of this one.

There's a small rubber contact on the doorjamb post. The switch inside get messed up. I believe it's called a doorjamb switch. I ended up unplugging mine.

^^ That or the wires that run between the hatch and the car could be starting to break. That's what my problem was.
