Quick update,took car to mates garage as he suggested wiring loom fault between door and pillar,turns out he was correct, three wires had snapped , i didnt have time or space to repair so he repaired it, ended up taking the door off to get to the loom and repair it, job done and for a good price, saved me the grief of taking door off especialy in this heat.

Interesting fault, is it something that is common? was there any reason why they had broken (chaffing, corrosion, something else)?

At least it was repaired, and seems like a good mechanic to have checked for something as simple as broken wires rather than firing the parts cannon at it.
