Yes, the driver´s door has the master switch for everything. No need to dismount the door panel. Look inside the door grab rail ( which is part of the window switch subpanel)and there is a tiny black plastic cover that hides a single phillips screw. Lift the cosmetic screw cover with a tiny flat screwdriver, there is a slot to insert the screwdriver, to lift it. PARTIALLY, just enough to see the screw.Unscrew it, and the whole subpanel comes out, pulling upwards. The screw plastic cover is very frail, and has a slave strip that attaches it to the bottom, when unscrewing, be very careful not to break it. The subpanel itself has 2 or 3 connectors to handle window / window lock and remote mirror duties. Check that all connectors are plugged in firmly. If they all were attached to begin with, check that the contacts have not rusted.
If it's only the drive's side door that's doing it, it's for safety purposes so you don't lock your keys in the car. close the door and use your remote to lock or your keys if you don't have your remote. If you already knew this then the lock switch may be faulty.
you most likely have a power/ground/switch issue in the drivers door. the power for the other three doors must first travel through the switches in the driver door before it goes to the passengers. hence the reason why when somebody rolls down a passenger window and you push the up button on the driver door the window stops moving. the wires can break inside the rubber boot in the door jam. you can also have an internal problem with the driver door switch unit. you would need a wiring diagram to diagnose this concern.
The only time my doors don't lock with the remote is when a door is open. If your problem is mechanical it wouldn't unlock. Might be a sensor thinking a door is open. Does the other functions with the remote work like rolling the windows down or hitting the lock button flashes the light ? I can't lock my doors from the inside with the remote.
