i need your help my wolkswagen 2005 doesnt want to lock 2 doors... i'm not sure if it's a fuse problem.. when i press the lock button to lock all doors it is just locking the pilot door and the one that is behind the co pilot door... Plz help me :(

My car has 189 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

If the driver side doors are the only ones that unlock when you press the power lock button, then it’s more than likely that you have a damaged main power lock control module or electrical relay to the passenger side doors that’s causing this issue.
