Question about 1996 BMW 318
Very complicated discription , hard to understand if you are not a mechanic.
But anyway , sounds like a bad door switch , I don't remember if it's separate switch or it is part of a door lock. Most likely part of a door lock.
Start from checking door wire harness(broken wire) between door and the body (door opens and closes , harness bends back and forht).
If it's ok , check door locks.
The light doesn't go off because it doesn't see door closed , same reason for glass , won't close up.
