The doors lock automatically at road speed and must be unlocked with the unlock switch before they will open (with the exception of the driver's door). This is how they were designed to work.
To unlock all doors with the remote keyless entry, hit the button twice (like double-clicking a mouse); the first unlocks the driver's door; the second push unlocks the remaining doors.
Hope this answers your request, andgood luck!

Are you talking about the key cylinder or the electric lock button? If you are talking about the key,you need to remove the door panel and watch the lock rod move up and down. There is a plastic clip that pops open or breaks from age. If you are talking about the electric lock, will the passenger door lock move when you press the lock button on the drivers door? Does the passenger door make a grunt noise when trying to lock/unlock?

hi i would start by checking if there is a relay, it seems that there is a delay on the pressure pump that is supposed to shoot the door pins up.

It's unlikely you can rectify this problem by playing around with the CL system so you will need to take it to the dealer or auto electrician to fix.
In any event you should be able to manually lock all passenger doors on the vehicle from inside the car and the drivers door from outside with the key.
Before you take the car to the auto shop to fix the CL system try this if you have not already.
1. Manually lock - then manually unlock - all doors (except the driver's door) from inside the car and make sure they are fully shut.
2. Then manually lock all doors a 2nd time except the driver's door.
3. Hit the lock button on your car key pad to activate the central locking system. This should lock the drivers door but with the fault it probably won't. Wait a few seconds then hit unlock on your key pad. Wait again and then hit lock once more. If it will not lock all doors you know what to do next.
