What car and age ?

If a Zafira it’s very common to have broken rear door loom wiring.
You may find other broken wires too. Whole rear light and interior light works on an earth system.
Crimps can be good enough to fix usually if that

If the car hasn't got switches on the hinge pillar, then the likelyhood is that there is a microswitch in the door lock.
If it is that type, the first check is for broken wires in the loom to the door, just like Zafiras and later Astras.
As above post, I'm not sure what type is fitted either.

Then the problem is probably in the light unit. Check all the connections for corrosion, and pay attention to any riveted connections through the plastic light body.
