Unlock passenger doors won't work
 
Hey maybe you all can help... So my unlock on the key fob only unlocks and locks the driver door. Same goes for both power lock switches on the inside. Don't know why nothing works and I'm worried I can't lock the lift gate or flipper glass now. Any ideas of why the rest of the locks aren't working?

Re: Unlock passenger doors won't work
 
There are some possible causes:
1) The passenger door module is faulty. But because the remote unlock transmitter
is mounted in the passenger door module, and the drivers side still works, i
wouldnīt expect this in the first place.
2) One of the lock motors is shorted, causing all the lock motors, driven by
passenger door module, to be inop. (so that are all, exept the drivers lock
motor). Also a shorted wire could be the problem. To find out if a lock motor is
the problem, you have to disconnect each motor electrically, one by one, and
check if the other motors start working again.
3) Both drivers side and passenger side door module share the same fuse, so that
canīt be the problem. But what also happens, is that on of the thick gauge
wires, who go from the door to the body through the rubber boot, breaks.
This normally happens more on the drivers side, due to the fact that this door is
used more often (for most of us at least:D), but could happen on the
passengers side as well. A look doesnīt cost anything (at least when it is your
look, a dealers look can be expensive:eek:).
By the way, for the time being at least, you could lock the liftgate manually. There is a small square plastic cover (5x5 cm approx) which hides a small manual lever, which allows you to lock/unlock the liftgate (and the flipglas together). Itīs difficult to see the lever from what i remember, partly due to the isolation blanket which is in the way, but just feel with your finger.

Thanks a lot I'll give it a try

If it is nothing that Frank has outlined then try looking at the settings of the overhead console thing (sorry don't no what it's called).
Scroll menu to auto unlock and choose all doors using the Step button.
There are 2 settings, drivers door 1st and All doors.

Hey Frank, are you still running HID in your high-beam?

Re: Unlock passenger doors won't work
 
No, in fact i swapped back to normal bulbs some 2 months ago after a low beam ballast burned out. Didnīt use the highbeam that much, so used that ballast for the low beams. Didnīt like the setup that much after all, because the HID bulbs have to heat up before they give enough light, so when signaling with highbeams, there was not that much light as i would have liked.
But now the highbeams are very yellow compared to the HIDs..................:(

I glad you finally came around and realized those are not meant for highs lol. Even though they're yellow they're not on very long right?
