Driver Side Door Switch dosent work

All the other door switches work except the driver side switch. It only works when i manually turn the interior lights on idk if its a bad ground wire. I just would like to know if there is anything else i can do or if i should follow the entire length of wire through the truck. If anyone has any ideas please feel free to leave them thanks.

Did you test the switch, removed from the circuit, with an ohmmeter or continuity tester? If so, what was the result? Did you test the circuit by removing the switch and jumpering the connector? If so, what was the result?

If you're tunring on the lights "manually" (presumably using the headlight switch), then you're bypassing the door switch, which means it has no bearing on whether the switch works.

What were the results of the two independent tests mentioned above?

Testing a switch does not involve power. Did you test it for continuity?

Did you test the SWITCH (with NO WIRES connected to it)? If you didn't you're chasing your tail.
