    Welcome to the club, it's good to have you aboard. I know nothing of the Avalanche but is a Chevy so I would bet it is a great truck. Hope you enjoy the site. :glasses:

    Bad sensor on the driver's side or, perhaps, the wiring to that sensor is disconnected, loose, shorted, or somesuch?

    Where is such sensor located on this door, behind panel somewhere?

    I believe it's a microswitch that's part of the door latch assembly, itself...
