I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

My name is MIKE -

The usual cause of these faults when you have what you have , is broken or chaffed wiring to the drivers door - or inside. This is common.

Check the wiring that runs inside the tubing that goes from the body to the drivers door... open that up and check carefully - repair as you find.

If there are no faults there - then you have to remove the drivers door panel and gain access to the inside of the door - to trace either a wiring issue as above - or a faulty door lock / solenoid -

99/100 the faults are found as above. You could have a plug in diagnostic done at a garage that would find the cause of this - but I suggest work as above first - you will often find the fault as above and be able to cure it that way -as found.

Let me know if you need anything more on this at all -
