The sensor attached to the car is probably stuck. it should be below towards the lower part of the door opening where the door rests on when it closes.its a small black rubber inside the rubber is a sensor.

additional information on the light problem…….when i operate the sensor by hand on the driver side the same thing happens. only the passenger side light works properly but the drivers side never works when the drivers side or passenger side doors are opened.
