My Expedition has the message ' door ajar' all the time... can it be reset?

03 Expedition, Eddie Bauer, does not have traditional buttons for the doors, must be electronic. Is this an easy fix or can it be cleared? All doors are shut. I can simply push the reset button on dash but when i restart motor it comes back on.

    If there is no door jamb button, then the switch is integral to the door lock assembly. Remove the door panel and replace the lock assembly. This is the unit that is bolted to the door,usually by 3 or 4 screws.
