have the computer scanned with an OBDII code reader, the body control module should give a code which will help pinpoint the problem.....

It's probably a door jam switch.Try spraying your door latches with some lubricant and operating several times.The switches are attached to the latches and get dirty causing them to stick.

I had the same problem with my 97 taurus last summer. The warning and interior lights would normally turn off after driving about a mile or less. This lasted about 2 or 3 weeks and I haven't had the problem since. It just fixed itself!
