Did not come with keyless remote. Doors will power lock and unlock with key out of ignition. When key is in the ignition, I can unlock, but can not LOCK. There is nothing engaging to try n lock. When I press the lock on power lock when key is in the ignition it doesn't lock and it chimes, ding ding ding, until I release the lock button.
I have purchased a new keyless remote, as well. I have followed the directions to program the remote with no luck as well.
Any help on these two issues will be much appreciated. Thanks Trying 2 do it myself

Hi there. If the driver door is not locking with the door ajar and the key in the ignition, that is normal. If all of the doors are not engaging the locks with the key in the ignition and the engine off, that also is normal. If the engine is running and the transmission is in park, then the doors should lock and unlock, but auto lock when putting the vehicle in drive (if your vehicle has that function). Try this:
This should program the computer system to unlock and lock the doors by the door lock switches. If this does not seem to work, then there is an issue with the programming in the computer or a failed door lock button on the driver door. I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you with your doors not locking if you are unable to get them to lock.
