Dim light after lock fail

Greetings Guys! Hope summer is going well.

Problem: when the light switch on my rear-view mirror is on the second position, it usually dims down after I exit and lock the car. Recently I've noticed that it no longer dims down. Anyone knows what could be the problem? I kind-of heard that it could be a sensor(switch) located on the door... Where is it if that is the problem. Please help. I'm sure that its nothing serious however I would like to resolve it ASAP.

Thanks for any input

All I know is that there was a clicking noise before the door is closed and it has been gone ever since this problem. So I'm sure it's something related to the door.

Ok I got it, the door open/close switch. Needed to be worked around with a screwdriver. It's also a little wobbly. Probably will need a new one soon.
