HI there,

Check the door switches in the door jamb. Sometimes the driver side gets beat up by the seat belt and closing it in the door. If the switch is beat up it's usually the problem. If it is, then replacement should resolve the problem. In the mean time you may be able to remove it and disconnect it to get the light out.

I am sending you a short youtube video. This may not be the same as what you have on yours, but should give you an idea of the switch and where to look.
