    Doors will not open automatically with key. Have to put key in lock to unlock door, key will only unlock the drive side.
    Other doors do not have a lock on doors can not get into trunk no lock.

    Hey people call this number 888-327-4236 tell them your problem. I did cause I think it should be a recall. I'm having the same issue.. It's a integrated control module for door locks... This part is on a national back order. So that means there's a hell of a lot of people with this problem... It's a big safety issue if you really think about it...

    Same thing with my Nitro power unlock only works on the drivers side "most" of the time and the rear wont open which DOES not help as it is hockey season so my son has practice/games 3-4 times a week and his huge bag is back there. Anyone know where I would go to get this fixed?

    same non function of door looks with key fob or inside switch... have had many other issues since new and none ever fixed under warranty has been worst dodge ive ever owned. and even filed lemon law with no results..ac stopped working...engine would accelerate on its own...tpms stopped reading tire pressure after 1 year..occasional stalling while driving for no reason...quirky electrical issues with dash lights and now door lock issue. talked with dodge to try to fix has been in shop while under warranty 13 times and problems never fixed cause they didn't know why or didn't want to spend dealership labor unless was assured they d be reimbursed for warranty work!!!! pitiful relations on junk they sold and they know it and don't care.. I don't think any of this or complaining will ever sway them to do the right thing until some dies and they get sued .. even then its usually just to hush the incident and keep from a real recall as it should have been...

    At first the rear door stopped working too to dealer for repair due it being under warranty at the time and just as the warranty expired it started with one rear door then one front then the other front only one rear door works now
