looking for a wiring diagram for the door locks or some good advice.

Driver door lock does not operate electrically, only with the key. It does not feel jammed or "sticky".

Key fob will unlock 3 doors but will not lock any doors. It know that it is transmitting the "lock" signal because the horn will honk and arm the security.

Front door switches will unlock 3 doors but will not lock any door.

Trunk lock switch will unlock and lock 3 doors.

I had an issue like this. I could hear the actuator trying to unlock the door and the plunger would jump ever so slightly. But not unlock. It ended up being the pop rivet that held the actuator to the inside of the door broke. I just replaced it with a small bolt.

Follow prompts down to Wiring Diagrams.

Often problems are with broken wire/wires in boot between door and body, or in wiring channel in floor at driver's side rear door.
