I have a Xterra Nissan and the interior lights will not go off unless I turn them off. They won't turn off after closing or locking the door. Any ideas?

One (or more) of the door ajar switches may be stuck open.  This will keep the lights on, as the vehicle thinks the door is still open even when its closed.  The easiest way to figure out which one it is would be to have a technican with a factory equivalent scan tool go in and see which door is still sending a signal.
