I just went thru this with the drivers door. Windows wouldnt work, power mirrors, locks no matter if i used the key fob or the door switch. The inside light wouldnt come on when i opened the door. I did alot of research and found alot of people where having this problem but on the passenger side. I figured it was the door module but spent 50 bucks at the dealer to make sure. The dealer wanted some thing like 300 or so for the part. No junk yardaround Ct had any thing for an 03 chevy silverado. I found the part for 114 on oem, there are also place's like parts train and so on. That price included shipping to my house. Popped the ****** in and all my problems where solved. The part is called a door module, door switchs or maybe re something or other. good luck

Check all 4 doors to see what works and doesn't work, be sure the interior domelight switch is set to turn on automatically when any door is open as well try the radio then open the 4 doors to see if it turns off...if your driver's side door don't work as you stated then that should be the door's "at fault".
GM built the door contact switch that's installed INSIDE the door-it's located inside the door striker/jamb area...it require removal of door trim to gain access.
However, you might want to try this visual inspection:
Check the thick wire harness located between the front-left door and door sill frame to see if any wire has been disconnected/cut or tampered with by previous owner.

Get a set of hinge pins and bushings. There is a tool that you can get at harbor freight or tool king for removing the bushings. I use a floor jack and a 4x4 block of wood to support the door. you will need a spring compressor to remove the door "hold" spring. Once you have that removed, you can use a brass drift or similar rod to tap the pins out. once they are out the door will be resting on the wood. I use heater hose to wedge between the fender and the door to prevent dents and scratches. tap out the bushings. ever so gently tap in the replacements. apply a generous helping of white grease to the bushing and pin. line up the door and insert the pins. you may have to apply an ever so light amount of tapping pressure on the pins to set them final. reinstall the door spring and lube the joints with white grease. be proud of yourself as your just saved a **** load of money.
