The switch in the latch is sticking, common problem on late model Fords. You need to spray WD-40 to clean it.

The door latch assy has sort a slot were the striker meshes into. You need to spray towards the bottom back corner ( back-meaning the part of the slot closest to the outer door skin). Open and close the door a couple of times and keep spraying it.

Do each door till you find the one causing the problem.
