Our Ford Expedition & an Olds Silhouette Premier & both did the same thing. Someone online said to spray the inside door where the metal connects with the frame & sensors are there with WD-40. We did & it fixed the problem. Maybe this will work for yours.

Hello I have a 2008 Ford Escape XLS and I had the same problem I even took it to the dealer to be fix but when I got it back in return it only worked until I got home and stopped working again. So I took it upon myself and took off the screws to the dome light very carefully not to pull any wires I looked at it and examined it. Come to find out that under the switch I noticed one side of the copper connector was slightly burned have no idea how and why it happened. So I took a very small flat head screw driver and rubbed the burned connector that's attached to the complete unit until I saw the burn color come off and did the same thing with the copper piece I saw curled up that is connected to the switch. I only rubbed underneath it because I figure it has to make contact with the other piece i had just rubbed very carefully not to bend or break it. Once I finished rubbing both pieces I pushed down the curled up piece that is attached to the switch: which for some weird reason it was curled up I'm guessing when it burn. I pushed it all the way down until it was making contact with the complete unit. Then I pushed the switch back and forth to make sure I could feel it rubbing/making contact on the bottom copper piece. I opened the door and it worked back to normal now I was really hating being in the dark at night and couldn't find the ignition. Hope this helps everyone.

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.

you have a bad drivers door latch, the micro switch inside is not telling the computer that the latch has been opened which would normally mean the door is open.

the fuse box you are looking for is under the dash on the passenger side, you will need to remove the plstic kick plate then look up and a little to the right,you might have to remove three screws located along the rear edge of the panel, when you have the cover off in the upper left hand corner of the fuse box you are looking for a fuse that is marked [ SBM ] this fuse is for you interior lights, there should be extra fuses, in the second row second from the bottom and the third row second rfom the top, you'll know their spares if they pull out really easy and have no metal connectors inside the slots you just pulled them out of.

The liftgate lamps
You can't turn them on manually ?
This could be a BCM problem , this best left to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer .

The interior lamp switch is in the ON position.
The keyless entry transmitter unlocks the doors (illuminated entry).
When the key is removed from the ignition switch with all of the doors closed, the courtesy lights light for approximately 25 seconds before fading out.
Battery positive voltage (B+) is applied at all times through the IP fuse block CTSY LP/PWR MIR fuse 6A via CKT 640 (ORN) through the body control module (MALL) to the courtesy lights via CKT 1732 (ORN). The MALL provides a ground through CKT 156 (WHT) for the courtesy lights under the following conditions:
The MALL receives an input from a door being opened.
The MALL receives an input from the interior lamp being turned ON.
The MALL receives an input from the doors being unlocked using the keyless entry transmitter.
The courtesy lamps then light.
When the courtesy lights are activated by opening and closing a door, the courtesy lights will remain on for approximately 25 seconds before fading out after all of the doors are closed. If the ignition switch is turned to START or RUN within the 25 seconds, the lights immediately begin to fade out. If a door is left open, the MALL removes battery positive voltage (B+) to the courtesy lights after 10 minutes. When the courtesy lights are activated by the interior lamp switch, the lights remain on as long as the interior lamp switch is in the ON position. When the courtesy lights are activated by unlocking the doors using the keyless entry transmitter, the lights remain on for approximately 40 seconds. If the doors are locked using the keyless entry transmitter within the 40 seconds, the lights immediately begin to fade out.
Body Control Module (MALL) Diagnostic Mode
For a detailed explanation of the MALL module diagnostic mode, refer to Body Control Module Cell 51.
