Default Driver's Door Doesn't Lock

wondering if you guys can help me...
I have an '02 WRX- had recent body work done, and now my driver's side door doesn't lock when actuated by remote control alarm.
All three other doors lock/unlock with no problem.

Any body have a clue as to how to fix this?????


TIA

Does the lock/unlock switch on the door work, and if so does it control all the doors or still only the other 3? If the drivers door does not lock or unlock at all with either the remote or the inside switch, the electric lock actuator inside the door is probably unplugged or defective.

Thanks for the response, Mulder.

Yes, the lock/unlock button works but only controls the other three doors.

I was wondering if there was another switch that turns off the driver door operation only.

Otherwise I need to take it back to the body shop and have them remove my door panel and fix it. Is door panel removal a fairly easy procedure??


Thanks again

It's very simple to take off the door panel if you know how. I can do it in about 30 seconds. If you want to DIY there are tutorials in the Car Stereo forum, look up in the FAQ section.
There is no switch or lockout for the drivers door lock.
If this is as simple as them having the door apart and forgetting to plug the actuator back in, you can easily fix it yourself and save a trip back there. Of course it is their responsibility to take care of it so it's up to you.
