    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.

    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?

    The right rear door quit working with the electric button, works fine manually. I purchased a door latch assembly and am working to get it put in now. Not only does it sometimes not unlock. We also have had it not lock and we forget to check it which has led to some other problems.
