Have a look at your door switcher maybe stuck due to corrosion, but if to do that your interior light should be on unless its a dead short draining the battery but that would blow the fuse. A 5w globe would drain it enough to flatten it, I know people say they have issues with the ABS keeping on the lights but yours is just one light, does your interior lights come on and off?

Awhile ago a mechanic disconnected the interior light, that might be an issue as well
