Which door does not have a lock issue?

The locks not working, they do not work in the lock nor unlock motion?

Do you get the same results with the lock switches and the key fob, only one door works?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
The driver door lock and unlock with key fob work except the UNLOCK power button on driver and passenger front door
The 3 other doors lock with fob and power buttons

I have try change door lock actuator but its only locking !
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
When i push the unlock button i haer a clic near the passenger foot fuse box All the fuse are good i have already check
When i wanna unlock with my hand on the handledoor on driver side it unlock driver only and when i go on passenger side the car dont unlock at all and beep approx 10 times

Does your vehicle have the smart key system?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.

The lock actuators work off of 2 wires.

To lock wire A is powered and wire B is grounded.

To unlock wire A is grounded and wire B is powered.

Since all doors will lock that confirms the wiring is fine and the actuators are fine. That means the Body ECU at the right side of the dash is bad It is getting correct signal to the drivers door on its own circuit bit not to the other 3 doors on there own circuit.

Here is a wire diagram if needed

Here is a doctored diagram showing the circuit issue

Here is the Body ECU location.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
seriiously if you can have 10 stars ill take 10 pretty happy do i have to reset something or just change the hole things and its done

In this case you would have to replace the body ECU which is also a JB junction box.

in the same time of the door not functuning when i press the button reaar defrost all radio vent dash evrything goes blind and there is some light like p#s and if i am on a red light the car shut down

We would need to diagnose those different issues on a different post.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
ok how we do that

You would need to open a new post, starting over fresh. You may want to address the known bad ECU prior though.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
what do you mean

Not sure what part of my comment you are questioning?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
ou may want to address the known bad ECU prior though.

I would fix the parts already diagnosed as faulty and needing to be replaced (body ecu) then start addressing any new and or remaining concerns you still have. The replacement body ECU may fix some of the other concerns.

ok thanks really appreviated

You are welcome
