You don't mention the year but the door locks should not be related. The keyfob may no longer activate them if the BCM does not recognize the RF signal, but they should work manually or electrically using the switch. You may have simply blown the fuse for the door locks. Check that first before having a dealership check the BCM for problems.

This is a common problem on GM vehicles. I have been dealing with these systems for years. Through much trial and error i have found that BYPASSING these systems is alot more cost effective than trying to diagnose and fix them. The cost is too high and mechanics tend to replace as many things as they can before fixing it. Here is a link to educate and guide you in the right direction. This IS something you can fix yourself and once bypassed will NEVER be an issue again.
