Purchased 08 Grand Caravan with Gate display on dash interior lights won't go off

So my wife and I just bought a newer (coming from an 01 GC SE) 08 GC SE, we noticed that we could not get the dash to brighten without having to turn the interior lights on. Also displayed on the dash is the word "gate". So the van thinks the rear door is always open so it won't shut the interior lights off? Could it be a bad relay or fuse?

Also the Van came with only one 1 key, they key does not have any remote lock/unlock/start looks like a basic transponder key can someone point me to directions to add a new key guide, thanks
