Question about 2001 Nissan Maxima
The remote won't unluck/lock unless the ignition is on. We can rule out a faulty remote because it works but only when the ignition is on. Also, the unluck/lock buttons on the doors won't work unless the ignition is on. Any suggestions on how to check the electricity flow to the Smart Entrance Control Module?
The control module is located behind the centre of the dash on left hand side, if you remove the side panel in the footwell you should see it around by the heater box assembly, u need to check it has a permanent 12v live feed with the ignition off, if it does not then u need to check all relevent fuses. if it does have a permanent live then replace the unit.

I would check all the fuses. Because some fuses supply a component from other fuse locations. It is safe to remove every fuse one by one to check for a bad fuse. With these problems you are explaining it really sounds like a bad fuse or relay. The module would not be the first on the list to repair. If you do find a bad fuse, replace it with the correct amps. You will have to refer to you owners manual to find which relay works the locks. But I really think a fuse is the problem here with multiple issues.
