Answers :

There two common problems with the driver's door control panel, rain water gets into the module and damages the electrics or the wires in the door boot break or abrade and short out. To check out the control panel itself, take the passenger side panel and hook it up to the drivers side, if everything works, replace the driver's panel.

My 2003 GMC Safari has developed an issue with the auto door lock and dome lights. In normal operation, the doors will automatically lock when the van is put in drive, the dome light comes on when the drivers? door is opened and if the van is running and the drivers? door is open, it won?t let you lock the door. All three of these items have quit working. My guess is it has something to do with the drivers? door switch, and therefore the van thinks the drivers? door is open.

I have a 2003 Mercedes ML320. The other day when I was getting out of my car, I folded in the mirrors, opened my door, and it started beeping at me, like the beeping if the lights were on or something. I made sure the lights were off and the doors were closed, but it kept beeping. And now the alarm wont work, the keyless entry remote doesnt function at all. The only way to lock the doors is to use the button inside the car and then lock the door with the key on the outside for the drivers door.

When opening or closing the driver door the interior lights do not work about 90% of the time. They do light up when the car is unlocked using the fob, but no other time. Also, the "idiot" beep that the lights are on, turn signal is on, etc when I get out of the car does not sound. It looks like the car does not know if the driver door is open. Where is the sensor that tells the car the door is open?
