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.

Driver side door lock does not work with remote or electronically inside vehicle. Also heated and cooled seats went out the same time. Dealers says it's over $1000 to repair these. BS!

Rear door actuators failed. Replaced!
Rear passenger door started not unlocking then not functioning at all. I have already replaced all the other actuators because they have all failed.
Drivers door automatic lock does not work
Passenger door lock, front, fails to automatically go all the way down or up.
Rear door lock is not opening at all
Rear doors are locked and will not unlock and rear wiper stopped working at the same time. All four passinger dor locks work fine.
Frony passenger door actuator started going out around 54000 miles. Already replaced rear right actuator and door handle.
The same thing has happened to my car as well, the rear door lock has stopped working. It tries a couple times to open then quits. Sometimes can't even use manual open.
Both the front passenger door & the rear driver side door stopped at the same time & no longer works, we were advised $750 each door to repair. Also, the air conditioning unit dissolved & had to be totally replaced. Along with the heating & a/c unit for the front passenger seat. It seems to me that the entire electrical system is faulty. Cadillac has definitely gone down in quality & will not be purchased by us again.
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.
