I have a 2013 S60 t5, recently the front drivers side door lock sensor stopped working followed by the rest of the doors a few weeks later. It's not a huge deal since I can unlock the car with the fab. But it was a really nice feature. Dose anyone have any idea what causes this or how to fix it? Thank you.

Your generation car had issues with water getting into the handle's electrical connector causing oxidation and subsequent open circuit.
Pull each door handle, unplug it and look into the end of the connector. If it's green in there most likely the terminals have corroded.
To fix, you replace the door handle with the outer half of the wire harness and splice in a harness repair kit to the door harness. This way you will have new terminals and connectors on each end.
Changing the handle requires you transfer the painted "skin" from the old handle onto the new one.
Repairing the harness requires removing the entire window cassette and splicing a new end of the harness on the bench.
