Try installing a 10 amp fuse in number one.

do you have a RKE fob for this car?

Does the rke lock or unlock the doors
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
unaware of RKE, but once driving 40 feet it locked before and now doesn't, must lock manually key remote does not do anything
did you test the battery in the remote or replace them?

If you use the door lock switches inside the car ,do the lock work?

You can try holding the button down on the remote four 4 seconds and than push the unlock button also to see if it will lock at 20 mph when driving.

there should be in the owner manual for setting the cust preference.

Here some more info for you.

If the door locks don't work when you push the remote button or the door switch in the door now, than you can check the RKE module for the remote to see if it still plug in
