Not me. Check inside the rubber boot between the driver's door and
the jamb.  You'll most likely find a broken wire or two.  Attach a
length of new wire between the broken ends, then poke the ends into
the door and jamb, so only the new wire is in the rubber boot.  You
can solder the joints, or use a butt connector crimped with a good
ratcheting crimper.  I got mine from MCM electronics:

'94 100 S Avant
'89 200 TQ, "Bad Puppy" needs a new home
