Two possibilities right off the bat. One is the opener is in vacation mode. You can tell if this is the case by the rapid blinking of the light in the wall control. If this is the case press and hold the button with the lock icon for 3 seconds.

If not the case you have a bad logic board.

Driver side door lock and unlock just manually and the all door not

I had a similar problem, where the doors would not unlock with remote and opening with the key also was difficult. I had to hold the key turned to open the door. I removed the switches and the inside panel (see Chilton manual for instructions, also look at the sitess of Honda dealers that sell parts. They have exploded views that will help you ). Then I manually operated the wire connected to the lock post and noticed that the mechanism in the actual lock body was sticky and not operating freely. I sprayed this heavily with wd40 while manually operating the mechanism. Once it was operating freely I let it sit for a while and tested with the remote to make sure it was working ok. Then sprayed it with silicone spray lubricant. It has been working great for last two years and has had no problems. Hope this helps.

How do you take the front driver side door panel off on 2010 hyundai elantra

It is pretty easy, but care must be taken so as to not damage the door panel. I recommend purchasing a door panel clip removal tool for this purpose. They are available at most parts retailers for just a few dollars. Using these tools to relaese the plastic clips on the door panel can save you a lot of aggravation and expense.

> Remove the triangular-shaped cover that covers the inside portion of the door mirror mountings. It simply "un-clips".

> Remove the screw that retains the bezel over the indide door release handle and remove the bezel.

Remove the two scres retaining the door panel to the door frame. One is under the triangle cover behind the mirror that you removed, and the other goes straight down into the pocket of the door pull.

Then use the special door clip release tool (recommended) or another suitable tool to pop the clips loose around the perimeter of the door panel. Lift out and up to remove door panel.

Installation is the reverse order.

2005 honda civic pasenger door locks jamed ,doesnt work w . remote but driver side door locks work ok.

There is a small solinoid inside the door. Place your hand on the door and lock the car. You will feel if the solinoid is working because you'll feel the door 'clunk'. Hopefully you'll feel that. If that is ok, take the inside door panel off carefully, fully grease the lock mechanism. If the solioid has gone, take it off the door panel, and spray with releasing oil. Drench it. Attatch two wires to the solinoid, and touch on the battery until it releases, just tap it, not holdt it on the battery, if still no luck, replace the solinoid.

I am having a similar issue but I can't even unlock the passengers side door and the remote is not operating properly either. Sadly, the car alarm is also causing problems - arming, disarmning and sounding at will. The mechanic informed me that the control inside the door (that operates the locks) is corroded from water getting inside the door. The cost to repair is approx. $600.

Cherokee cargo door does not open

You will have to get into the rear from inside the car and remove the rear hatch panel from the inside, then you will have access to the linkage in the door and operate it manualy. If the rear hatch does not operate with the remote(if it has power door locks) you might need an lock accuator.
