When I use my remote to lock doors, driver's side does not lock. I have to lock manually with key. Is this due to faulty actuator? If so, is it easy to repair? What is cost for material and labor?

I have a rattle coming from front-driver's side whenever i hit a bump or make a turn. I believe is has to do with my mounting plate to my strut assembly. Do I need to tighten any bolts to my mounting plate? If so, how do I get access to them and what size wrench will I need? If not, what is cost to replace a mounting plate?
Question Asked: front brakes has "pulsating" feel whenever I brake. Is it due to warp rotors?

My front brakes has "pulsating" feel when I brake. One mechanic says rotor requires machining and new brake pads are required. However, when i brought car for second opinion, mechanic says rotors / brake pads are still good. However caliper is frozen and will not move. Therefore, I need need calipers. I do not want to spend more than what I need to spend. What is your opinion?
Question Asked: What's creating rattle sound from front drivers side whenever I go over bumps?
January 03, 2011, 11:31 AM
I had ALL my struts replaced about a year ago. In addition, I had a rear mounting plate (part of strut assembly) replaced due to rattle sound whenever I go over bumps. Mechanic I brought car to concluded it is my front driver's side calipers. However, the rattle occurs ONLY when I go over bumps, or ruts on road. I still believe the rattle is coming from a faulty mounting plate, or a bolt is not tighten down on my front-drive's side strut. Do you concur?
Question Asked: Car will not start after turning the ignition. Is the starter the culprit?
January 03, 2011, 11:10 AM
My car will not start after turning the ignition key. I hear a "clickin" sound. However, after several times turning the ignition key the car will start up. First, I suspected the battery, but my dashboard lights are on. Second, I thought it could be the Alternator, but as previously noted the dashboard lights are lit after turning the ignition key. So I concluded I have a faulty starter. With the symptons I just described do you concur, as well?
