2006 WK Power Locks malfunction

Need help with Power Locks Malfunction.
Remote and drivers door switch may be used to open the drivers door lock.
Remote and drivers door switch do not open any other door or tailgate
Passenger door switch does not open any door or tailgate
Remote, driver switch and passenger switch all work to lock all doors and tailgate.
Anyone know where to begin? I am tempted to buy a drivers switch console for about $60
I took off drivers door panel and found no broken wiring. I unplugged drivers switch and it has a discernible click sound when actuated.
Any advice would be most appreciated and thank you!

Re: 2006 WK Power Locks malfunction

the only real thing you could do would be to see what happens when you're pushing the switch with a DMM.

Check for corosion on the contacts for the switchs, i know i've fixed a bunch of vehicles locking issues by simply cleaning the contacts.

Do you suggest that I remove the drivers switch assembly and disassemble to reveal the contacts? Would dirt on the drivers side cause the passenger side to be inoperative? Thanks

Re: 2006 WK Power Locks malfunction

This problem was solved by replacement of the relay module at a part cost of $300. Something was dripping. On the module and corroded a relay contact. Diagnosis by stealership cost another $300. I put part in myself which was no easy task. Think plug and rotate. I also put a piece of roofing material atop the module in the event of future leaks as I was not able to find the source.
