It is a small wire inside the door panel and should be marked as arial as the drivers door lock is the main servo which via an arial wire should operate the others. do the others all work at the same time? if so then it definitely the prob.

Hi, I have a Holden Astra TS city 98 model car and the remote on the key will open all the doors except the drivers door, so to lock all doors I have to put the key in the drivers door or use the remote &...


A plastic clip that holds the lock linkage is probably broke or worn. You need to pull of the inner door panel to see whats going on inside. Use the remote and see whats happening. It could be bent rod in door from someone using a slim jim to unlock it when they locked the keys in it at some point. Bend the rod and try the remote again untill it works properly.

Driver door control panel stop working


MCU unit in door has been known to have issues. Have codes read for proper switch positions to see if this needs to be changed. Another note is faulty negative battery cables have been known to cause all kinds of electrical anomalies. Its a $60 part but may save you heartache in the long run if it fixes this problem or not.

I have a 2004 Camry SE. The only door I can open with my remote is the driver's door. I have to manually open the other 3 doors manually. Can you tell me what the problem is and how can I corre


This may be a security feature. In some cars only the driver's door can be unlocked with the fob. Once the driver is inside, the other doors can be unlocked individually from the driver's master control panel. In your Toyota, all door lock/unlock functions are controlled by the body ECU

On driver side and rear side on driver side, both doors will not lock and unlock when use remote key. How can I fix the power lock to lock and unlock?


If the door locks by using the door switch the fault is with the master control unit. So there is a link failure from the master control to the sub units in the door, it can be a break in the wiring harness in the door hinges as this remote trigger can be lost on the driver side and which goes parallel to the rear side.
remove the panel and check the lines, compare to the other side to find the missing line - open wire. You can loop or wire a new connection from the open section.

Drivers door completly in-op,mirror,door lock,all windows,window lockout.truck inside light doesnt even come on when door opened and when unlocking with keyless remote,all doors open except drivers


Inside the drivers door is a drivers door module (computer) which controls all the things you stated. The module is actually the window switch assembly as a whole. Either it has a problem with the data line and can't communicate with the other modules or it has lost its power or ground. Check all fuses, first. Remove the door panel and check the obvious, for cut wires etc. They can even fail internally if they get water into them (window down). You will have to have the BCM (body control computer scanned for codes. It will tell you if the drivers door module is recognized on the data line.
