Default Driver side door lock no working with the key fob on 2008 Lexus IS350

My Lexus keyfob does everything but unlock the driver side door. When in the car, I cant even use the unlock button on the door to unlock it. Every door unlocks but the driver side door. What do you guys think it could be?

The actuator is bad on the driverside. It's the "motor-like" thing that unlocks / locks the door when you use the switch or remote. This issue happens to power door locks.

I'm not sure your level of technicality.

But you need to remove your driver side door panel to access it. The hardest part should be removing the panels to reach the door internals. If you are not comfortable doing this, take it to the dealership. You can try taking it to Toyota dealership to save some bucks if they do that work.

There should be a DIY somewhere on removing your door panels. If I remember correctly, people who installed the led side-mirror on 2008 and earlier need to remove the door panel to connect the wires and power inside the door.

Ok, I looked up the DIY videos and it seems simple enough. I'm gonna try it myself . I also saw where it took some people less than 30 mins to do. I looked up the actuator on ebay and its anywhere from 150-200 so, I'll give it a whirl. Thanks shadowman!
