1. The doors used to automatically lock when the car was started. Now they don't lock. Key fob does lock the doors from outside.

2. the ignition key only opens the driver's door . No other door including trunk can be opened by this key. Do I need another key made for the passenger and the trunk doors have the locks.

3. The right passenger door lock doesn't function automatically. It can only be opened and closed from inside. The driver's door main lock doesn't have any affect on the passenger's door when locking and unlocking doors from inside.

Thank you.

    These sound like separate problems. Did you buy this car used? If so, the driver's door lock may have been changed. Usually one key fits all.

    As for the doors locking when you start the car, I believe this is a programming issue that might be resolved using a professional scan tool and knowing how to do that.

    The passenger door not locking with the fob or from the inside sounds like a defective actuator in the passenger door.
