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!
I have a 2008 Escalade ESV and my passenger locks do not unlock all the time. Is it a fuse or actuator? How difficult is it to do it myself? I'm far from a mechanic.
