I have a 2012 KIA Rio5 LX. It doesn't come with power locks

Customer Question

I have a 2012 KIA Rio5 LX. It doesn't come with power locks but when you lock/unlock the driver's door, all doors are supposed to follow. This feature doesn't work on my vehicle any more. Any suggestions? is there a suspected fuse or a switch that may fix it?
JA: Is this your first time dealing with this issue?
Customer: Yes
JA: Are you fixing your Rio5 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Nothing yet. Called the dealer, they are asking $128 for diagnostuics
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: diagnostics

Unfortunately, there is no fuse, most likely, the drivers door lock actuator assembly has failed, and will have to be replaced. Please rate my service, I will continue to answer your questions, until you are completely satisfied with my answers.

Do you know roughly how much it will cost? I live in Michigan

Just need an estimate, if you have one.

Door lock assemblies range from $200-$500, labor here in Oklahoma, is one hundred dollars an hour. The job requires about two hours, and one hour for diagnostics.
