My 2008 Cadillac EXT doors will not lock or unlock. When I first bought the truck new the rear passenger door lock was replace and two days later the I noticed the front passenger door had the same problem. I assumed they just switched the locks from front to back and didn't replace it. Now all locks don't work. I am so aggravated by this. I must look really attractive reaching in back to lift up the locks.

The door locks intermittently lock with key fob and sometimes do not unlock. It's very random. If you lock them all by hand, a different door or doors will unlock with the key fob.
