SOURCE: Hi, I have a 2003

I have a similar problem. The remote sometimes opens all doors, and other times it will only open the 2 rear doors. Once inside the vehicle, the driver side window controls intermittently operates all windows and doors. It has no effect on the 2 rear doors, as the window controls still work. This behavior happens intermittently while driving the vehicle.

SOURCE: All of the door locks but one on our 1999 GMC

there is a relay but if it were bad none of your locks would work. your problem is the door lock motor it is a little electric motor that actuates the lock. its also called a door lock actuator. kind of expensive and a little difficult to replace.

Rear seat video screens do not work in GMC Terrain

What would have blown the fuse? A defective component? So fuse or not there is an issue in the system and a new fuse will just blow again. Check the owner's annual for fuse locations, if there is a separate fuse hen it will be listed there.

What are the programing instructions for gmc terrain keyless remote fob?

According to a website I found for you, if it's a 2010 model you can't do it yourself. The site, which has much more information on the subject that you may want to read, said: "There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote. Try a locksmith before the dealership, they are usually 50% the cost."

The site also went on to say that it might be a good idea to go to your dealer (or call them) with your VIN number to see first if there have been any related recalls. Here's the site this info is from:
