Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

you either have a door lock actuator issue or master switch, more than likely its the actuator and we would want to check that first by verifying voltage at the actuator when the button is pressed

Is the actuator located inside the door?
Kia Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician  replied 11 months ago

Is there an actuator in each door or is there one actuator for all the doors?
Kia Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician  replied 11 months ago

why does the driver side actuator work but not the other three?
Kia Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician  replied 11 months ago

I dunno thats what were trying to find out, could be the switch or the actuators, they get worn out over time or you could not be getting a signal through the switch
