Either the power lock mechanism inside that particular door is shot , or the wire that goes to it is. It would not be on a seperate circuit / fuse / or relay than the others. The inner door panel will have to be removed to access the lock mechanism.

If you can hear the solenoid inside, the linkage is off. If you can't hear the solenoid, the wiring or solenoid is bad. Either way, you have to take the panel off the door and access the locking mechanism. OK?

SOURCE: What is the main cause

I have the same problem. I just ordered a driver's door lock actuator. Pretty sure that will solve it.

The drivers side cook lock does not lock or unlock using the remote. The other door do respond to the remote. What is the cause and solution?


Hi Charles

The drivers side door gets the most use
Check the actuator wiring coming through the door hinge
If it works from the key then the Power to the door is OK & the key switch is ok. Must be trigger wire from wireless device receiver!

Good Luck

So far, what I have tried hasn't worked. Guess I will have to take off door panel. But which door? Driver side door locks and unlocks with remote, with key and with inside door switch. Passenger door...


Since the driver's door gets the most use, and all circuits run through the master switch, check driver's door first and check the wiring at the hinge area for breaks.

My door on the driverside will not lock or unlockwith the remote all other doors work ok


does it work with the switch (both drivers and passengers side?)

It could be the actuator is burned out its self if it doesn't work at all, or you have a broken wire in the door boot.

Other option is its a fault of the BCM. The door lock communications is a data signal on the cars CAN network... when do remote starts on a 01 GM product I use an interface module that will control the door locks, otherwise on certain models you have to wire into the circuit board in the drivers window switch as its the main control for the door locks when using the switch

The doors will not lock or unlock from the door but will from the remote?


The title suggest the door won't unlock unless the remote is used but during the summer it was the inverse. If while inside the car the doors will not lock or unlock from the door but will from the remote then you have a faulty switch.If while outside the car the key turns while in the lock but the door won't lock or unlock then the linkage at the end of the lock is faulty. You'll need to remove the door inside plate to check this.

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.

Power locks don't work with remote or control from


The door lock/unlock input from the driver's key switch goes to the Door Multiplex control unit (main switch), the Door multiplex control unit then sends a signal on the BUS (CAN) circuit to the passenger's multiplex control unit; the passenger's multiplex control unit then controls all the door locks. The passenger's door lock key switch inputs to the passenger's multiplex control unit, if the locks work from the passenger's side key switch but not the driver's side key switch, the most likely cause is the driver's multiplex control unit (main switch) not sending the signal to the passenger's side multiplex control unit. This could also be the drivers side door lock actuator. Hope this helps!
