Sounds like something wrong with the type or part they used. The contact owns a 2008 Saturn Aura. This is since the switch was turned off. This is now the second time this has happened. It could be the battery it could be the key fob or the receiver. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.
The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. If not, try a bigger piece. That could lead to the vehicles rolling when drivers think they are in park. However, this may not work depending on how power door lock circuits are wired. Got out, would not close, so I pushed it shut and locked with remote, is stayed latched, then I tried to get back in, using the remote, the lock inside the door popped up like it had unlocked, but the door would not open.
It's not going down the window to inside the door with the water, but maybe there is another water leak I can't tell. The dealer stated that all four door actuators and the two front door locks needed to be replaced. I replaced the fuses hoping it would fix the problem but it didn't. They work from time to time but once it gets warm outside or if I drive for a while, I'm stuck with open windows. I have just been using my key to unlock door to get in car. One mechanic thought it might be engine mounts.
The part and installing it aren't expensive, but the diagnostics will cost some. The only way to know if there are any codes in there is to check with a scanner, not a code reader. That may also point you in the right direction if any codes are stored there. Upon returning, the doors would be unlocked. Thanks for all your help. Driver's manual says this light is related to transmission somehow.
Enter your vehicle and close all doors. Also, I wonder if I need to do something to stop the water leaking in from outside when it rains to make this not happen again. The crossovers are made in Lansing area plants. After you change oil and filter make sure you reset the oil life system. Parts are not currently available. If it does, please get back to us, and well go from there. Power door lock mech fails to unlock on door, this will sometimes cause door to not unlock.
Derf's idea if unplugging the switch is what I have also recommend in the past for various issues. They said that the door lock motors have failed. Use care when using a squeegee to remove air bubbles. While driving various speeds or when the vehicle was parked, the door locks would lock and unlock independently. The frequency is random though some days, keeps getting worse, occurs a few times a minute at worse. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

There are still details to be polished, but to compare the Aura's interior with that of earlier Saturns is to contrast two different automotive eras. The recall began on August 18, 2014. Problem seemed to start with having to press lock button on car door a few times to lock. The recall began on July 17, 2014. If the transmission shift cable fractures while the vehicle is being driven, the transmission gear selection may not match the indicated gear and the vehicle may move in an unintended or unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash.
Also, I have separate issue of warning light on dashboard. While attempting to enter the rear of the vehicle, the contact was unable to unlock the rear driver and passenger doors. The lock didn't just quit, it was a gradual thing but it's happening more frequent now. Furthermore, the vehicle may not be able to be restarted. A single chime will be heard.
Bulletin 14118 covers model year 2008 Chevrolet Malibu, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura built from October 1, 2007, through January 31, 2008.

When parts are available, owners will be mailed a second letter to come in to have the applicable bulletin applied. The contact stated that the failure was intermittent.
This other mechanic isn't dealer though, but has good reputation. Any of the above failure conditions increases the risk of a crash. You might try removing the driver's switch and see if the rest of the system behaves normally. I found in drivers manual the fuse for power locks in fuse box on passenger side of center console. I haven't tried to take the doors apart on this car. Usually a corroded or loose plug connector can be the culprit.
