Default Door Locking/unlocking problem

So the last few days my 08 OBS's drivers door wont lock or unlock with the keyless entry or with the button inside the car. All the other doors lock and unlock as usual. The door does lock and unlock with the key though. My only thought is that something may have come undone inside the door. I would take it to the dealer but my warranty is up. Any ideas?

Your warranty is up on a 2yr old car? Call the dealership and talk to them. Even if you buy it used, unless it was a salvaged wreck the warranty is transferable.

I would still give them a call. They are usually nice about that sort of stuff.

It is most likely the fuse or a bad master relay in the driver's door.

Start with the fuse.

From my experience, once the button is depressed, if the actuator is bad it just clicks lightly with no movement or makes a hum sound. Undo the linkage when testing this, because sometimes a seized piece of linkage will mimic a bad relay/actuator.

There is no sound at all... If i flip the little manual lock on the inside it moves as it always did.
