For plastic and vinyl you need to use the proper paint. Regular old spray paint has some issues. You'd be better off going to an automotive store and asking for a product called Plastikote. It's a vinyl dye in a spray can. Humidity could be keeping the current paint from drying. If it's on plastic or vinyl is doesn't really have a place to soak into.

it's possible that smoke/dirt/oils built up on the door panel could do this. how well was it cleaned first?

i've had some success with spraying a clearcoat over non-drying paint. if it's a similar type paint, this may help. it may also take longer to set anywhere you've touched it. (skin oils) you may need to remove/strip the panel and start over with another type of paint.
