For odd electrical problems, sometimes disconnecting the battery for an hour, or overnight if possible, helps. When you re-connect, make an effort to avoid "bouncing" the connection. "Bouncing" sends an on-off-on 12v spike into the electrical system, and can sometimes cause problems with modules.

Interesting that the drivers door will NOT lock with the key? Don't know if that's a factor or not?? thanks again for your help!!
