This answer was rated:

My key fob does not lock or unlock my drivers side door anymore. Very seldom do the other doors unlock. Also cannot lower the windows with key fob.

MASTER TECH :

Hello welcome to just answer I'm Master Tech and will be able to assist you today.


 

MASTER TECH :

are you able to manually lock and unlock the door with the key ? does the lock attempt to lock or make any noises like clicking in the door ?


 

Customer: I can manually lock the door. And when I manually lock the driver door all other doors lock. No unusual noises when I lock or unlock the door.
MASTER TECH :

ok the door lock actuators are a real common failure for this very problem.


 

MASTER TECH :

I can provide a test for the lock actuator if you want to remove the door panel and test it to confirm.


 

MASTER TECH :

at my dealer we do these on a very regular basis


 

Customer: Did u receive my reply?

MASTER TECH :
