May be chafed or broken wire(s) usually in/around the door's rubber boot between the Door and frame. Some methodical testing of all your door switches may also show a problem with other Door Locks,mirrors, and/or the other Windows. Sometimes only when affected Door is Open, Half Open/Closed, or Closed.

Basically if it is an Electrical short just be prepared to not have any of those functions as testing may increase the chances of the problem(s) getting worse. Had a Power Lock switch failure on the Driver's side door. Easy enough to ignore. Eventually lost power mirrors (also not too bad) but when I couldn't control any Windows from the Driver's side... it was time to fix. Had to patch up a lot of cracks and breaks. So I suppose if you catch it sooner rather then later you can do some preventive maintenance... (I got everything but Power Mirrors back after my repairs... So not sure if I miswired,missed a short, and/or had a new break when reinstalling the boot/wires.)
