Are you saying you need a new driver's side switch? a master switch. If you remove the switch from the connector, can you operate the driver lock actuator by providing a power and ground, then swapping them to make it actuate the other way? if it tests good, just the switch, if not, you need to replace the actuator and check the door latch, then reevaluate the remote operation once the diag is completed and the parts are renewed.

It's pretty cramped in that little door, if you are very large and have long arms you may have to lift and support that side of the vehicle for access.

Thank you for the response! The car has been like this since I bought it (just over a year ago) and haven't got round to looking at it until today. Turns out that for some reason the plug for the electrics wasn't even connected!!! Connected it back up and all functions fine,,,, cant believe it! Thanks anyway great advice

Thanks for your vote, the more you look at what it could be, it seems, the more you find. Hope you have the switches figured out too !

Oh, you say the plug going up into the master switch in the drivers door fell off? like a missing fastener, perhaps. Great.
