Drivers side door lock...

Drivers side door lock does not work with remote eb btw

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

Drivers side door will not unlock or lock with either the keyless entry or the switch on the side of the door. It is not the actuator or broken so

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

Wire. All other door locks open and close using the fob or switch.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Is there a module that all the signals run through?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's all I know

I'm not quite sure why you say it's not the actuator this is a very common problem and it is caused by the latch itself which has the lock and unlock function the micro switch that tells the vehicle when the doors open or closed and everything built into it.Generally we actually check this with a scan tool through the body control module for since you don't have one about all I can do is pull the rubber boot back between the door and the body and make sure there's no cut or broken wires and if there's not then replace the latch.If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to let me know if I've answered your question your satisfaction please hit accept next to my name because that is the only way the site will compensate me for my time otherwise I don't get paid you can ask follow-up questions even after hitting accept

Well I know it's not the actuator because I replaced it. I took it to a garage and they did not find a bad wire. My question is, is there a common module that the signal for the key fob or the door switch goes through before it goes to the autuator to open or close the lock
