If you haven't done the fix the broken wires in the driver's door job yet,
this could be your chance. The alarm on my car did something similar after I
"fixed" just the window/sunroof ground wire. Replacing sections of all the
wires going through the door hinge fixed it - not especially difficult but
rather time-consuming. I've also done the front passenger door wires
(although that window problem was a dirty switch, at least there were far
fewer wires) and trunk (reverse lights wires shorting and blowing fuse).
