    Sounds like a Spider\Bug in the overhead console. I get this from time to time with my outdoor security light sensor.

    Faulty door switch. Been mentioned a few times before on there.
    I have the same problem. Make sure your doors are closed properly (no red light showing from end of door when closed).
    If you look where the door catch locks to the door, there is a small white plastic switch, this becomes faulty.
    You can just about push it in with your car key.

    You can try spraying some wd40 into the door mech and using something to move the microswitch to see if it frees it up as my door didnt always register as being shut and has been fine since i did this.
