Check the door indicator switch. Push button thingy that tells the BCM when it is open or closed (black rubber thing). <--- very technical

Theres a little rubber black button in the door jam.

You cant miss it. Just push it and see if the indicator goes away. If not then the switch might be bad.

If it goes away your not closing your door good or the door isn't pushing the switch when its closed.

I know that on my truck you really need to slam the doors or our thick as sh$t door seals won't allow it to close all the way and the door ajar light comes on.

My passenger side door is a pain to shut. Most people have to shut it twice. It's mainly due to vacuum pressure I guess, if I roll down a window it'll shut easy. Most Chevy's do that it seems, got the same problem with the Trailblazer occasionally, and on my buddy's 91 GMC K2500.

You ever look to see if the vents on the back of the cab are opening and letting the pressure out?

I know its prolly not it but just a suggestion.
