Default V70 door edge lights left side not working

Hi all

On a 1999 V70 both left door edge marker lights are not working.

If I test the supply to each LH door when open, there is no voltage at the connector behind the lamp (and the lamp does not light).
When I open either LH door, the overhead courtesy light does not light up.

When I open either RH door, the overhead courtesy light *does* light up (and the door lamps do light).

Before I take the door cards off (because the switch is part of the door latch), can anyone point me to a wiring diagram or spot a location that is common just to both of those left hand doors?

It is possible that the problem has been present for a long time, so it is possible that both LH latch switches are bad, but I am hoping for some other explanation.

Thanks
Steve

PS
Found this article which looks very relevant

If I have to remove the door cards I will look for the white pivot arm that is mentioned for some situations where the lights do not come on.

the light plugs into the door actuator, so there is probably a fault with that.

Sounds like a problem with the micro switches in the door latches.
I believe there are various posts/videos on how to repair or replace...means taking out the lock assembly.
