Answers :

Take some WD40 and open the doors and spray a liberal amount into each of the door latches. Then open and close the doors firmly several times. This will work most of the time to unstick the ajar switches.
Are they on on both sides or just one? It may be the switch inside the drivers side door. The switch is part of the door latch assembly. The other things could be a broken wire in the door jam or the timer module is defective.
