Does the interior light turn off when all the doors are shut? And did I see you say in a previous post one of your handles are stiff?

I had a similar problem with my van one the rear handles wasnt latching on properly and was stiff to open/close and I couldnt get the van to lock which was a !Removed! nightmare lol had to keep emptying the full van untill it was sorted. I had to strip the lock fully out of the door then reasemble it after lubricating it properly

Hi do not know if this will help you, but last weekend i replace my drivers door lock. i put the steel inner door panel on and tryed the locks and it work ok, all doors locked with the window down i pulled the cable on the inner door handle to try the dead lock all ok. but when i put the other door panel on and the inner door handle, doors would not lock it locked and opened right away so i took the inner door handle off and push the cable back in by hand all doors lock & dead locks work so i and sparyed WD40 down the cable then put the handle back on and now working ok. so take off inner door handle and push the cable back by hand to see if the cable is sticking and not returning hope this helps you.
