2 most likely causes are: 1: a faulty hood switch.Check for the switch around the microfilter housings near the strut towers. 2: a faulty interior sensor. If you are sitting in the driver's seat. Look directly above your head in the center of the car. Pull the cover at the edges. You should see a sensor inside the cover. Unplug the sensor and retest your system.

aaahhh...im glad i have someone that gives enough information to solve your proble,......the short answer is the drivers door lock motor.......the info that you provided proves that the remote is communicating with the vehicle, and that the wiring is good and sound......the part that you ned to know and understand is that door lock motors come in 2 main types. Master and Slave.
The back doors are slaves and they do what the master tells them, self-explanatory.
The front doors are masters. On the calais, there is an option for 2 stage unlocking, where one press of the remote opens the drivers door only, and the second press, unlocks the rest commanded by the passenger door, which is a master.
The master door locks have a remote section and a hardwire section. The hardwire section works because unlock/lock of the drivers door commands all the others but the remote section (electric motor - push/pull) is not working, hence it wont work by itself.
get yourself a 2nd hand drivers door lock motor and this will fix all your problems
hope this helps
