Default Drivers' door stuck as "open" - Help!!!!

01 SL2 Saturn -

I installed a new speaker yesterday. I had to remove the door panel in which I had little problems. After everything was put back together, the door is now "stuck" as open. When it isn't. The door opens and closes fine, it's just something is reading the door as open when it's not.

The alarm won't lock (3 beep warning) but will unlock via remote. It locks/unlocks fine on the inside, but not with the remote. The interior light stays on when set to DOOR mode. When the key is left in the ignition it chimes like the door is open unless the car is on.

I need some major help here, because I can't use my alarm/lock/interior light until I figure out what I screwed up.

Sorry for the double-ish post. New to the forums, and this one explains my problem more clearly.

I'd start with checking the door switch... it's a little plunger-type thing that gets pushed in when the door is closed. It's pretty closed to the area that you were working. Usually, it's black plastic but I haven't checked on the s-series.

that's what i explained to him on the other thread, as i can't imagine what else could be the problem. maybe when he removed the door panel it doesn't line up with the switch properly or something, or the switch broke while he was removing the panel? maybe the panel hit the switch while removing?
