Look for broken wires passing through the rubber gaiter from door to pillar drivers side. If OK remove door panel and check wires on master switch on door lock for corrosion.

It is a known fact that has been reported on the forum before that the wiring connectors are not the best, I had a broken wire supplying the number plate lights on mine...so Birdman is right, it is difficult to isolate this sort of fault but is most likely a broken wire or poor connection.
