Automatic lock on driver side won't lock/unlock with key anymore; only drivers. on 2006 Honda Accord

The driver side lock won't unlock/lock when button on key is pressed. All others still lock/unlock. I have to now unlock/lock manually. Anyone have an easy solution without having to take it in to a shop???

UNFORTUNATLEY IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR HAS GONE BAD, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE LOOKED AT TO CONFIRM BUT THAT IS MOST COMMON PROBLEM. RUN A ESTIMATE WITH REPAIR PAL FOR DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR AND IT WILL GIVE YOU A BALL PARK OF THE COST INVOLVED, HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL RYAN MODE MODE AUTOMOTIVE 858-361-4645

ok- i am in similar place-(4 door) i just replaced driver actuator- it doesn't seem to have changed anything-driver side key opening only opens that door. I don't even hear the driver door actuator work. i do hear the passenger side work. when i try to open from passenger side i do get passenger side doors to open.... could there be a switch problem? it is so confusing- are there any other in-line fuses or relays to know about?
