Welcome to Just Answer!!!

Very Very common you have broken wires on the divers side door harness if you open the divers side door and pull back the rubber grommet and take a close look a the wires for that go into the door you will need to pull back on the rubber grommet that covers the wires to be able to see the broken wires. You will need to replace the harness wich requires removing the outer door skin. I hope this helps.
