Ok there's a few things that cause this (1) any one of the doors can be moving because the striker on the frame is loose or has moved and it is not holding the door locked all the way breaking the ground try to move the doors after closing them with the windows down any movement will break the ground and keep the interior light on (2) there is a wire that is inside of each door that has a plug on it and it attaches to the door lock latch mechanism in the rear of the door where it grabs the striker I just mentioned it has 4 pins/wires check that one of the wires is not broken off or that the plug is corroded and needs to be cleaned or that the lock plug pins/4/need to be cleaned (3) the rear lift gate can have the same problems mentioned above and the lock/latch or striker needs adjustment if the door is moving when you push/pull on it or it needs to be cleaned (4) all the door locks and lift gate are powered when you press the door/lift gate lock /unlock button if one doesn't work the that lock me be broken and it's keeping the light on so check them for operation (6) check all the wires for continuity through the circuits for each door from the plugs on the locks (8) you may be able to unplug all the lock plugs to shut off the light when the doors are closed then 1 by 1 plug one in and see if the light now stays on after you close the door if it does you found where the problem is and if you can't fix it you must replace it or leave it unplugged possibly but you have an anti theft system in this vehicle which may keep activating the alarm

Most likely if you have the correct rims. Make sure you have 17" rims or get a set with the correct bolt pattern

Before any power can reach the lamps or the switch, power has to be going into the circuit, yet nowhere in your description do you say you have checked for power going into or leaving the fuse, reaching the brake switch or leaving it.

I suggest you obtain a test lamp and follow the power...

Use a test light to make sure that you have voltage at the brake switch and that the switch is making connection when the brake pedal is depressed.

There are plastic rivets taht need to be pull and possibly to be cut. and there should have 2-3 bolts per side which need to be removed. The rivets or clips can be purchase at the dealer or local Automotive store, such as autozone and etc.

if it's and automatic transmission it sounds like your torque converter is not unlocking if it's a manual it could be the idle air control sensor or the mass air flow sensor.

Try changing the PCM, there is a chance that some solder connections inside are failing. Also, make sure that the connectors are fully seated. Personally, I have had problems with Bosch sensors on my 97.

It reminds you to do your 'regular scheduled maintenance' of your car.
Example: 50,000-miles, 70,000-miles, 100,000-miles, etc. These warnings are already programmed in your car's computers to simply remind you so the car is kept in top shape, and peak performance.
In some cases, if this maintenance warning is ignored, the car may not keep its peak performance or even break down, having to be towed.
The concerned car's authorized dealer usual performs these regularly scheduled maintenance, but competent independent auto repair shops, such as Midas, are able to do these reagular maintenance as well.

Check rubber brake hose at caliper and replace if defective.

Thermostat may not be working correctly . Sticking open makes it take longer to heat and sticking closed or too near closed can restrict the flow of coolant to the heater core and possibly overheat the engine . A worn water pump impeller can also produce this symptom .

If you take the tail light assembly off and take the bulb out, you'll see three metal contacts on the tail light assembly.  Pry them up slightly and slide a small, folded piece of aluminum foil underneath it.  
Replace the bulb and try to reproduce the problem.  I found this fix online and did it to both sides of my car.. no problems since
