Exclamation Door Ajar at Random?!

I just got my car back today from a previous accident and now my door ajar light comes on and the dome light comes on. The body shop guarantees their work so I can take it back but they are only open till 12 tomorrow. The light comes on depending on where weight is shifted in the car (weird, I know). Is there a temporary fix to this so I dont have to hear the annoying noise come on? Or perhaps someone knows how to fix this immediately?

@night throne. I figured out the problem. The sensor from the new fender apparently isn't pushed out far out enough. I took care of it by applying a generous amount of tape on the pad that presses the sensor down. Thanks a lot for the help!!
