Interior lights not working when opening driver side door.

The past week or so I noticed when I open the driver side door the interior lights don't come on & the driver side window doesn't drop, making closing the door a chore. When I open the passenger side door everything works as it should.

When I unlock the car the interior lights come on like they should,but today I noticed that when I lock or unlock the car the corner lights aren't blinking like they should.

I assume the issue is in my driver side door. Where should I start?
