Driver side door doesn't lock or unlock with the remote. The rest of the doors work fine.


Does the Driver side door lock and unlock from the lock switch inside? If not then you have a bad motor or bad connection to the lock/unlock motor inside the door.

My mom, got inside the car. and when she was inside she accidentaly click the PANIC button ON, of course Click it again, so it would go off. But now, the car doesn´t start! and it was working...


from outside the car make sure all doors a closed completely, make sure hood and trunk are also closed. lock the vehicle with the remote, unlock it and repeat, lock and unlock. if it still wont start, put the key in the driver door lock, lock and unlock the door three times with the key, then try to start.

Driver door power lock doesn't work with keyless remote or power lock/unlock button


It looks to me like your power door lock solenoid/actuator is either disconnected, or internally failed. DOes it make any noise when you operate the switches? If so, the link to the rod may be broken. If it makes no noises at all, you will probably need to replace the lock solenoid.
