Doors does not want to unlock / lock with remote. Batteries…

Customer Question
Doors does not want...

Doors does not want to unlock / lock with remote. Batteries changed but no effect. Unlocking the drivers door works, however none of the others doors is opening from the inside even?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you changed a battery before?

Yes

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

2007

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

No I take it to a Mazda dealership. The last time (August 2017) they replaced the remote batteries. I am concerned they bullshit me. Hence I am doing my own homework I do not have a problem to replace if it is "easy"

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

When I sit in the vehicle after unlocking it with the key (other doors does not unlock or even open) and I press the remote to unlock I can hear a slight sound from the dashboard (passenger side).

I am sorry no one has responded yet. I know you must be thinking " I have been taken or this is a scam" Neither is the case. Sometimes there are more questions than we can get to and we just keep getting farther and farther behind. Sometimes what a customer asks, no experts online are confident their answer will be good enough. Is there any more information you can add to your concern or is there another concern you may have that we could answer instead?
