Drivers 'door open' tell tale

My 166 T Spark thinks that the drivers door is open all the time! The dahboard tell tale is on all the time, and this in turn means the interior lights stay on (though they time out after approx 4 minutes).
Has anybody else come across this problem?:confused i am hoping it is a switch problem, which i assume is in the door, and not a wire problem.

It's probably the microswitch in the door, clipped into the latch. They sometimes stick or fail. This has happened on my 75 and also on one of my Lancia Themas. Usually just needs to be removed and given a squirt of WD40.
