    I am having the same issues, driver door only works when it's wet, passenger door works fine. I plan on changing out the micro switches as soon as it annoys me enough to bite the bullet and buy them.

    Mines did the opposite. When I would wash the car or when it rained mine stopped working. Until one day it just stopped all together

    Sure enough, washed her today and the driver door has been working fine all day. Guess I'll just wash it more often, probably cheaper than replacing the micro switches
