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.

Most likely is a fuse. There is a fuse box at the end of the right side of the dash. Open front passenger door and there is a cover that says fuses on the end of dash. There is also a fuse box located under the hood at the right front of engine compartment. It should have a cover with a round knob in the middle of it .Unscrew the knob to remove cover.

There's a switch that's usually located around the door hinges; you should be able to see it if the door is open. Sounds like the switch is bad, and isn't completing the circuit when you open the one door. Open the door, and see if you can wiggle the switch. If so, see if it will turn the lights on. It won't always do it, but if it does, it will confirm that it is sticking. If not, you may have to take the switch out, and jump the two leads to see if the lights will come on. If they do, go ahead and replace the switch. If not, test the two wires with a multimeter, looking for around 12-16 volts DC. If you have power there, then the switch is bad. If you do not, then you need to trace the wires and find the break in the wires.
