I have to manually lock and unlock my doors...the key fob doesn't need a battery as other features work (alarm)..I just can't unlock or lock the doors. I AM able to use the key fob to open the rear and side doors.

Trying taking fob apart and cleaning the connector points where the lock/unlock buttons meet the circuit board. These connector points sometimes get grungy and gently rubbing them with a clean eraser. Carefully reassemble. This has worked for me. Good luck.

I took out the lock fuse in the fuse box and just put it back in....and it worked!

Disconnect car battery, wait 60 seconds or so, re-connect! Solves all sorts of problems with these dodges!
