Go with the switches first. Check each door and the trunk. The
switches have a plastic POJ plunger that's prone to breakage.
Essentially when you close the door the switch doesn't open if the
plunger is broken. I have used a two inch common nail cut to size and
rounded on the end to suffice until you can find a good used one. Use
the head of the nail for the contact. Very simple to take the switch
apart. Kinda pricey at the dealer here for such a flimsy piece. Lotsa
them in the junk yards.

Best regards,
