You need to replace the lock actuator in the doors that are not locking/unlocking with the door switch/remote. If the remote works for most of the doors then it is fine. The actuator is what moves the lock when it gets the signal from the remote or door switch to move it. Good luck
This sounds like you may have a bad lock actuator, there is an actuator that controls the lock, it may need replacing, you will need to remove the door panel to gain access to it, then with a testlight you will test to make sure the actuator is getting power and a ground and if it tests good for power and ground then replace it and door lock will start working again, this part is about 30.00 dollars. here is a picture of it. good day
Sounds like the drivers door lock switch is bad an as far as the auto start remote the contacts under the button get dirty and won't make contact, open the remote like changing the battery and you can probably get at the contact button, if it's a little carbon button they can be cleaned with a pencil eraser and then paper tower with a bit of rubbing alcohol, if it's an actual switch you can try spraying some contact cleaner into the switch. let it dry before you put the battery back in.
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.
This is not a problem with the remotes. It probably doesn't work with the door lock switch either. I had the same problem and it is the power lock actuator. The problem is that the replacement part it is not just an actuator - It is the whole door latch. I replaced mine and you will need a hand impact driver to remove the 3 screws that hold the latch on the edge of the door. The Haynes manual will give you the steps with some pictures.
I have had this problem take you drivers door put your key and un-lock from the out side with key (NO) then open the door push un-lock from the inside button and then set from you remote and it should set if not push un-lock then lock and then do the un-lock with the key. Let me know if that works. what my car did was locked from the inside and I had the problem were it would not work till I un-locked from the out side plus I had to go to radioshack and change the battery from the control.
Hope good happens.
