The problem is the drivers door lock actuator was this replaced?

a new driver side door was recovered from a salvage yard and put onto my car, with my original inside door panel. also, I could not get the gas panel to open via pushing the inside door button so that I could fill the car with gas, but I was able to get the trunk open via the inside door button. Thanks.

Ok then the wiring of this door is different either off a different model or year which makes the pinout in the harness different which is causing this issue. They need to check the wiring and if they checks out ok they need to make sure it's the correct door. Hoped this helped.Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
