Question 2001 slk 320 with courtesy light problem

I just bought the car and like it a lot. My first Benz! Its got some problems, but mostly small so far. Hope I can find help for this problem: with courtesy light switch in the "active" position, the light goes on as if a door is open, but nothing is open. Light goes off after a few minutes as it should,as if a door were left open. Seems like a door (or trunk?) switch is not working properly -- stuck in the "door open" position. The driver's door switch seems to be ok because the I get a "ding" if I open the door when the head lights are left on. Can anyone tell me how to trouble shoot the problem further? I did a search on the forum but did not get any good hits for this problem.
