Right rear door lock doesn't respond to electronic fob or unlock control on driver door panel. It must be opened by manually lifting knob. Fob or driver door controls close door without a problem. I understand this is due to R/R door lock mechanism and must be replaced. Is there another solution.

Erratic unlocking behaviour, typically during heat of day, fail to unlock with remote key central lock, have to unlock manually. Resolves on it's own.

When unlocking the doors, the drivers side rear door doesn't unlock.. weither with the key, or the lock control button inside the car, it does not unlock. the only way to unlock it is to manually pull up the lock . however, the door does lock when you lock the doors from the button, and the key. haven't fixed this issue yet, thats what im looking for on this site.

Constant clicking on and off from my passenger side door lock. I disconnected the unit to stop the clicking the window was on the same connection which was shorting anyway. But then I have to manually turn off the cab lights every time i get out of the car since it won't receive the message the door is closed. Left for vacay a week, came back and the battery died from the clicking. SO BAD that none of the locks would work on the fob. Buyers beware.
