If the remote is arming and disarming the alarm then, it should be locking and unlocking the doors as well. The door lock and unlock wires need to be connected. Are sure that they are connected? Do the door locks work with the switch?
First, I'd recommend buying (or borrowing from the library) a Chilton or Haynes Manual to help finding the parts and how to access them. They'll save you a lot of time and headaches.
Then I'd try replacing the door lock motor. The motor itself should be just behind the inside door panel. Many times these motors, after years of wear and tear, break the teeth off the internal gears, causing a loud grinding/whirring noise but not allowing the doors to fully lock or even lock at all.
You can either buy a new motor from an auto parts store, but I've found that by checking with the local junk yard turns up some really good deals. Try to find a car that is the same make and model but maybe a newer year, bring the old motor with you, and make sure they look exactly the same down to the mounting holes.
I hope I could help you fix this issue. Good luck and don't forget to rate! Thank you!
Could be a couple different things. Was the camera dropped or exposed to liquid? If so it may be a problem that needs repair by replacing the damaged parts.
One thing for you to try is to find the small battery door switch beside the memory card slot, is it damaged or missing? Without this switch the camera will not turn on. Put in the battery and with the door open press down the switch gently with a pencil. Now press the power button... does it power?
If it's not that switch then it's most likely the fuse which has shorted out. If you can solder well then you can replace the fuse, they are pretty cheap to buy. Another option is to buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two.
If that's not an option you can have somebody repair it for you. If its out of warranty Canon will want $150+ to do it.
DONT throw it in the trash! It's still worth money even if you don't want to repair it, sell it online or sell it to us; we are a digital camera repair business (Google: Darntoothysam com) and would buy it for parts if we can't get the parts to fix it for you.
Hope this helps

You are decribing a typical Door Safety Switch problem. The Door Safety Switches has Failed.The Door Safety Switch is designed to shut down the Micro in the event the Micro is still cooking when the door is being opened. The first "Click" of the switch cuts off the "Cook". If it does not cut off the "Cook", the second "Click" blows the power. Otherwise it would "Cook" with the door open, and I need not to tell you how DANGEROUS that could be. It first Tripped the Circuit Breaker which supplies power to the Microwave. After Re-Setting the Breaker the same thing happened except this time the Micro is DEAD- not even a light working. Yes, there is a line FUSE inside the Micro. You however need to address the Door Switch SHORT before replacing the fuse. If not, it will just Blow The Fuse Again, and Again, until the Short is corrected.
