Sounds like the switch is bad. Try passenger side lock button or keyfob lock. If they work and not driver side, then it's the switch in the doorpanel. If none work to lock, but all will unlock, then it's probably the little lock motor inside driver door.

Power locks lock with remote, but open by themselves, so I stopped using the remote. Still happens when I manually lock the doors


It might be in the ignition sensor. Most cars have a sensor that will not let the doors lock with they key in the ignition.

Power door locks will not lock except manually


First of all, check ACC fuse in the driver side junction box. The central controller for power door locks is the body ECU. From your description it may be working only partially. Can the doors be locked using a key? If so, this would indicate the actual locking mechanism is OK. Do the front door lock control switches lock the doors?
