Driver side door does not lock with key fob

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

when I try to lock the car with the key fob, the driver side door does not lock but every other door locks. Help!

Hello and welcome to the LOC.

If all the control rods are connected and there is no noise then

The usual cause is the motor has failed in the door actuator.

Given the price of a brand new one I would be looking for a decent working unit from a breaker ( try ebay) you can just replace the motor but not an easy job.

Thanks Steve - the locks on all the doors work - just not the driver side. I am currently locking manually.

Also when I do try to lock I can have two clicks so it sounds like it is shutting but just the front door does not. I also went inside with the key and asked my son to check the door as some people say that's to do with having the key close, the door will open but even from afar, the door is still open.

thank you for your help.
