    My passenger door front right won't unlock from power locks . Any idea how to fix or what part is? The power lock button on that side works fine . Door will not will not lock or unlock unless manually do it.

    My rear passenger window switch went out this past September and I replaced it with this $11 gem, works perfect.

    you can diagnose the switch is the problem by removing the switch from any of the other passenger doors and installing it in your broken switches place. If it works with the swapped one, you know it’s the switch....

    Likely its the door lock actuator. Im having my front passenger one replaced tomorrow morning for the same reason.

    I thought it was actuator too because the button on that door will lock and unlock other doors except for that one. I usually use remote to unlock doors and not use buttons anyway. It won't work off of that either. Just manually locks and unlocks. How much is it costing you?

    I had the same thing happen. My front driver door lock actuator went out in December. It seems to be a common issue. Do a quick search on YouTube. You will find a video showing how to replace the electric motor. They cost like $4 on Amazon/ebay, and the job takes about 30 minutes if you take your time. I purchased an extra motor just in case another one needs replaced. Sure beats paying hundreds of dollars at the dealership.

    When my switch went out I couldn’t use the master control switch on the drivers door nor the switch on the passenger door itself, I could only manually lock it. I highly recommend switching switches as this could be the problem.

    I have the platinum $0 ded extended warranty so there is no charge to me. I'm here at the dealership right now for my 7am appt. I'll see if they listed the cost on the paperwork when i leave. Hoping to be out of here soon, they dont take long to install.
