there is a control box (which is under rhdrive cars passenger glove box)which is attached to heating duct(release screw and pull duct down,)on a metel plate, these often go and so no signal/pulse is sent to other solenoids,so no locking unlocking.

There' a quick test to see IF yr controller OR your Drivers Door switch is the Cause. In front of the Drivers Door Jam there is a 3 prong connector... unpplug it and try grounding either of the two oter wires to either the black (ground) or to the car metal.. IF.. it makes the locks work then it's the Lock switch.
The central controller CAN be burned out ..and v often IS..by trying the locks quickly and in rapid succession.. there is a built in 1 sec delay ..the electronic timer gizmo dies when thusly abused.
Also try the Driver's door lock and listen carefully for a faint double click from the controller.. it's under the Glovebox. Likely IF it's audibly cycling.. the problem is in the Actuator (s).
Frustrating repairs.. but hey! You gotta Love these cars :)
