Hi and welcome to FixYa! I'm afraid that it's not a fuse issue. You definitely have a faulty door lock actuators that's why the door won't open by remote. The actuator is located inside the door trim. Once replaced you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!
Does the switch inside for that door work ? Does the power window work for that door ? Check fuse DDM - 15 amp I/P fuse panel . Do you know where the insturment panel fuse box is located ?
Fuse Block - I/P
Left of the I/P behind the side trim panel
Driver Door Module (DDM)
Do you know anything about automotive electronic's , control module's ? Serial data communication networks ?
The driver and passenger door lock and side window switches are integrated control module switch assemblies. The DDS and PDS door lock switches are normally open, 2 position rocker type switches, with detents for lock and unlock. The DDS and PDS are directly connected to the respective door lock actuator through the door lock actuator control circuits. When a door lock or unlock function is activated from the DDS or PDS, a serial data message lock or unlock command is sent to the other door switch and body control module.
I had a very similar situation. Was very annoying not being able to unlock or lock doors from pannel control nor from remote.
Only driver door can be opened with manual key.
Solution: One of the 15 amp purple fuses was blown. Fuses are located inside glove compartment, the interior end has to be removed releasing the two locks.
Use a light and the red tool located on the panel to remove fuses.
Even with a fuse out the key not the remote will unlock the doors. The key does not need electrical power to work only the remote. If the keys don't work you have oyhr problems. In that case a locksmith or auto lock out service can unlock the car.
Check the remote battery or replace. Check all fuses. If you need to reprogram, try this.
key not in ignition. driver door open-others closed driver door unlocked
1-insert and remove key from ignition two times
2-close and open driver door two times
3-insert and remove key once from ign.
4-close and open drvr door twice
5-insert key into ign.,then close driver door
6-turn key to on (not start) then off, twice this is rewrite mode,have all remotes to reprogram it will clear any lost remotes.
7-remove key from ignition,the door locks should cycle twice.if not start over.it may take a few tries.
8-press lock/unlock together and hold for a second
9-release,and press lock on remote,the door locks will cycle confirming program.continue to do other remotes you have,steps 8 and 9.if only one in possesion,you are done.
to end mode open door or insert key into ig.you can do up to 4 remotes.read this a couple of times to get the sequence down.there are time restraints,but if you go in order it will work.do not wait more than a second b/t each step and you will be ok.i know from experience that you can do this as fast as you can and it will enter mode.if steps out of order or you wait to long it wont.print this and have in lap,read ahead of what you are doing.good luck
When you open the driver door does the little light in the door panel come on. Or do you notice if the dome light comes on when set to door open setting? If it's a gli it has electric door locks and remote. If they don't come on with the door open the door is not sensing being opened by the microswitches in the latch. When you unlock the door with the remote and open the door without putting your key in the ignition the doors probally will relock (just make sure the key isn't in the car alone) about 15 seconds later. A normal effect as safety when the door isn't opened the car will relock. If this is the situation you can start by checking the wiring in the accordian between the door and frame for cut wires and the connections in the kick panel behind the hood release, but 99% of the time it is a defective latch.
