Sounds like the lock motor is locked up or probably broken connectors yo have to open the door panel to check this out.

Only my driver side power door lock on my 2001 honda crv awd works with or without remote. All 3 other doors stopped working. Why?


Look in the owners manual to see if you have a child lock out switch or button. I have seen it where the child lock out prevented the locks and windows from operating, except on the driver side.

2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Driver Side Door Lock Not Working


Does the lock/unlock work by pressing the button on the inside? If it is just the drivers side door, It may be the motor for the lock on that side.

My 1999 jetta remote has stopped working.


you should be able to turn off alarm via key in drivers door if not test all doors to make sure they unlock. if any door will not lock that door latch will need replaced if work ok then try disarming alarm from trunk key or from the passanger door. if that works,you may need to have the key recoded to the car.

All power door locks lock except the driver side front door


On my jetta, if you don't lock the doors with the remote then all doors lock except the drivers door. try this
1. closing all doors walk around to the passenger door.
2.open the door, using the button on the passenger door, lock the doors.

I had this happen to me on my jetta and found you could lock all the doors if you did'nt use the drivers door or you locked using the remote. They did this to keep the driver from locking the keys in the car. I hope this worked for you

If remote locks and unlocks driver door but does not unlock passenger doors,then follow the advice above:
Get in the car using the key to unlock the doors. From the passenger side lock and unlock your doors using the button on the passenger door. Get out and the remote should now unlock all the doors with 2 presses.
Worked perfectly for me after several other suggestions (and dealer) failed.

The electric motor that pulls the lock button up and down has failed, you will need to pull the door panel to replace it. Yes it is fairly common.
