Hi .

If this is the case then you will need to be hooked up to the diagnostic scan tool and have the BCM checked for malfunction codes .

A bad door switch ,ignition switch ,BCM malfunction could cause this to happen ,

Like i said you will need a scan tool to check for codes .

But try this first and use your finger and not by closing and opening the door .as said in the first instructions .
