sounds like your drivers door module either fried or lost power, if you can get it scanned it should come up with a trouble code, or if your inclined, you can check the connectors on the module for the switches and make sure they are in all the way. just gently pull up on the trim around the switches starting at the rear of the trim, 2 clips hold it in place, it should pop out, then you can check the connectors

SOURCE: lower control arm replacement
lower control arm replacement is 0w/coil front springs isnot as tough as it looks. Just have the car high enough th get a floor jack under the control arm and be able to lower it at least six inches. Remove the shock,undo the bolts at the frame and lower the jack untul the spring can be removed. once spring is out, use a picke fork to seperate the lowe ball joint, you nooe have the control arm free. rememver to put the rubber pads on each end of the coil spring on reassembly or a sqeek will develop. new cotter pins an lube ball joints Good luck

A Ball Joint Can Usually Be Replaced Without Removing The Control Arm From The Vehicle. Place The Vehicle On Jack Stands. Remove The Shock Absorber And Install A Spring Compressor on The Coil Spring.Remove The Nut Securing The Ball Joint To The steering Knuckle And Separate The Knuckle And Then Joint. The Ball Joint Should Be Pressed,Riveted,Bolted,Or Screwed Into The Control Arm.A Service Manual Will Give The Details For The Specific Make And Model Vehicle.
