The drivers door latch needs to be replaced. The latch has the dome light and RAP(the radio and windows working while ignition is off) switches built into it. You can try spraying P.B. Blaster or WD-40 into the latch on the end of the door. Then open and shut the door completely about 10-15 times. It's a temporary fix and most of the time it works.
