Q: Driver side door switch has no power. on 1994 Ford Escort

The door switch on the driver's side has no power. This means that the car believes the door is always closed. The dome light does not come on and seat belt motor does not activate. Does anyone have a wiring diagram or experience with this issue?

I found the problem. The connector on the seat belt motor was disconnected. The motor and connector are located in the wall of the vehicle near the floor just behind the driver side door. Once I plugged in the connector the seat belt motor and dome light began reacting to the door opening and closing.
