No lock noise on the passenger side. Drivers side normal. I do not hear the 'chirp' when the doors are locked with the key fob.

Ok on dash does it show you have a door open when the door is opened ? Do interior lights come on ?

Dash shows doors open and interior lights come on when doors open.

Ok in the door shut area where hinges are there is a rubber tbe if you pop one end back just check and see if there are any broken wires inside .i suspect there wont be and the lock itself has failed as this is very common

i do not see any broken wires.

In most cases the door lock is at fault .the door will need to be stripped to test at door lock and for replacement

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I've replaced parts in pickup doors. How difficult is the TT door panel to remove? Cost of the lock replacement?
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 month ago.

The tts are tricking in this are as the door lock is removed from the outside . You have to strip the door card from the inside and then remove outer door skin to remove lock
