Search on "ignition switch" and see whether anyone reports your issue as a symptom of a failing switch. When one of my ignition switches failed, the illumination for the light switch stayed on all the time. I never received a detailed explanation as to why that would happen, but replacing the switch fixed it.

Good luck

My 2004 door lock light comes on when it auto locks the doors when I take off. I assume itís normal if the car is programmed to autolock the doors.
