    No clue mate, the only thing that comes to mind is to check for a faulty connection on the doors switch.

    The switch is inside the lock bit of the door - as in the bit that closes onto the striker plate. Have a root for it and it may just need some switch cleaner. If that isn't the problem, then you may need to adjust the striker plate on the B pillar to let the door close a smidge further - it could be that something has moved and it's not allowing the switch to close fully,

    First thing I'd check is the switch.
