Can you give us a bit mroe info? "door lock does not work " could mean many things.



Without more info my guess would be the door lock actuator is going bad?

It's pretty much the thing that locks,unlocks, holds the door shut, and senses if the door is open/close.


I was able to replace mine for $30~ (new part but off brand) and less then 2 hours of fiddling around.

My drivers side door locks with the remote door key but the passenger side door does not lock with the remote or when I manually do it from the door switch.

If it's the actuator on passenger door tgat needs to be changed should I change the drivers side as well.

The micro switches in the door actuator are known to go bad. Probably need to change it. Does the interior cabin light come on when you open that door? If not, that is another indicator that it needs to be replaced. And I wouldn't bother with the driver's door if it's working.
