Door Lock Problems

Having problems with my door locks. I have to manually lock and unlock my driver side door with the key. The remote makes the lights on the rear view mirror come on but no joy with the locks. Alarm still works. I can hear something running after using the key. The dealer wants $700 for a new motor. Does that sound right? Any help would be great!

i have the same problem... except i replaced a lost key about a year ago. the metal key works in the driverside door but not in the trunk? i cant remember if it ever did work in the trunk. all i know is it doesn't now. i was wondering if i could pop the trunk by diconnecting the vacuum line from the pump, and using something like the mightyvac to produce a vacuum pressure...????

Here are two suggestions.

1) Sync the key according your owner's manuals (this will unlikely fix the problem but try it anyhow).

2) Check the fuse as discussed in this thread (near the end).
