Why would you bother trying to fix it yourself?

Are you sure the door is closed all the way.

I would think there's a discontinuity in the switch or wire which transmits the "door closed" status. I haven't looked for where the switches are located...or like they said, put it on your list of things for your dealer to check at your first service.
