The wiring inside the drivers door going to the door latch is shorting or the switch in the latch is malfunctioning. Remove the door panel and inspect the wiring going to the latch. The wire colors are dark blue and light green. If you find no problem with the wiring, replace the latch.

would removing the door and replacing the latch be a do it yourself job? ive seen people talk ab disconnecting the battery..would this have any effect? and by latch the piece that basically keeps the door shut
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 8 years ago.

Removing the door panel and replacing the latch is easy enough for a do-it-yourselfer. The latch is the piece that holds the door shut. Disconnecting the battery will likely have no affect on the problem.
