Do you have electric locks in the vehicle? One test to do is turn on the car's headlights and open the door. You should hear a chime when you open the driver door. One other thing is to unlock the doors with the remote if you have a remote open the driver door, get in the car but don't put the key in the ignition. The doors might relock after 15-20 seconds. This proves that the door signal open is not being processed. Just tell me what model VW and what year and if you have electric locks and I'll help you.

I have the answer to your problem. One of 2 things. Cut wiring harness in the door accordain between the frame and the door. Or most common a defective door latch. The door latch contains the microswitch that tells the comfort module that the door is open or closed. If the lights stay on this means the switch thinks the door is always open. Also the alarm will not activate. First make sure no cut wires then if not replace the door's defective latch.

You will find hidden screws behind things like switch panels and handles and handle covers. after you have remove usually around 4-5 screws/bolts the panel will come off either by lifting it straight up or will have door panel plugs that you will pop straight out.

The problem you are experiencing is the drivers side interior light switch is not working. This is usually found in the door latch on later model cars and usually requires the complete latch mechanism changing. However it would pay to check that your car doesn't have a pin switch fitted in the pillar.Unfortunately I think you have the former.
