Driver side door will not lock/unlock with the remote, but the other doors will.
The driver-side lock was working with the remote before I pulled the plug that connects the door's wire harness to the car's body. When I disconnected the harness plug, all the doors unlocked. I had to remove the door to fix a broken wire that worked the fuel door solenoid. Using the remote, unlock and lock works on all doors but the driver-side door. If all the doors are unlocked, manually locking the driver-side door will lock all doors. If all the doors are locked, manually unlocking the driver-side door does nothing. Using the driver-side door lock/unlock control switch unlocks and locks all doors except the driver-side door itself. Locking the driver-side door when all other doors are locked produces a two clicking noises (I assume a relay going on then off). Whether all other doors are locked or unlocked, unlocking the driver-side door manually produces the same two clicks (relay?). Any ideas?
Testimonial: "Thanks Steve! Before I get an actuator, I'm going to test to see if it is actually getting power. Just other info: Salvage yard (U-pull it) sell used ones for all doors around $5 each. A new one for the driver side is around $40 (The other three doors cost $70+ which is strange). I'm guessing the $90 installed must include paying someone for service, but this is a quick and easy diy job."

it is not the actuators, try a different remote, you may have an issue with the car security system/body computer not functioning on the unlock driver door command, one press of remote is unlock driver door and 2 presses is unlock the other doors.
Does the switch inside for that door work ? Does the power window work for that door ? Check fuse DDM - 15 amp I/P fuse panel . Do you know where the insturment panel fuse box is located ?
Fuse Block - I/P
Left of the I/P behind the side trim panel
Driver Door Module (DDM)
Do you know anything about automotive electronic's , control module's ? Serial data communication networks ?
The driver and passenger door lock and side window switches are integrated control module switch assemblies. The DDS and PDS door lock switches are normally open, 2 position rocker type switches, with detents for lock and unlock. The DDS and PDS are directly connected to the respective door lock actuator through the door lock actuator control circuits. When a door lock or unlock function is activated from the DDS or PDS, a serial data message lock or unlock command is sent to the other door switch and body control module.
If remote locks and unlocks driver door but does not unlock passenger doors,then follow the advice above: Get in the car using the key to unlock the doors. From the passenger
side lock and unlock your doors using the button on the passenger
door. Get out and the remote should now unlock all the doors with 2
presses. Worked perfectly for me after several other suggestions (and dealer) failed.
