Question about Cars & Trucks
With the door left open, open and close the door on the opposite side. If it works correctly, then you have a bad "door switch" (that little button mounted on either the front or rear jam pillar) on the "problem door" side.

I had a friend that had the same issue. I had the same issue with my 99 Bonneville the outside door handle and the door latch itself where sticking because of dirt or some other substance. I kept my car very clean and I also cleaned the door jambs after every wash, but still there was a sticking in the latch and handle.
I could be driving down the road and the lights would be on. and I would open the window (with the doors locked and flick the outside handle and the interior lights would turn off. then I knew it was the outside handle that had a censor that was sticking. Why does the out side handle even have a censor? Good question. It seems the more sophisticated our cars become the more probability of issues from the littlest things.

What happens when you remove both switches, and wires? What happens when you use a jumper wire acros both wires, on both doors?

If I am not mistaken, the plunger is located in the door with the latch. Most of the time you can just pull the door panel off and adjust the switch. After opening and closing the door, they get knocked out of adjustment. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Take care and best wishes.

your door close switch is non-functional. its located in the door jamb. its a black button the size of a shirt button. usually held in by one or two screws.
there is one for each door.
