Question about 2006 Chevrolet Equinox
I have a 2006 equinox and although there's power to the switch in and out the door lock on the drivers side doesn't work. All others do though.
Test to see if you have power going to the door lock motor, if you do, then motor is bad, if you don't then there is a shorted wire or switch

You can do it yourself.
Couple of times when you replace the remote battery, you might have them not working/ responding but just follow the procedure below.
Stand close to the car, hold down the open and close knobs for about 10 seconds. Press them at the same time for 3 seconds; then press the open button as the car opens.
The above procedure is applicable to a lot of car brands. It does not matter how many knobs you might have on the remote fob.
I have carried this procedure out on a lot of brands ranging from Honda, Toyota, Rover, Ford, etc. and it works perfectly well.
Good luck and Rate this.

Look on the door panel for small plastic covers. There should be one or two at the door handle and maybe another closer toward the door hinge. Also, around the perimeter of the door panel, there are some plastic inserts. They are ribbed and are just pressed into holes on the metal door frame. You just pull on the door panel in these areas to get the plastic inserts out. There might be as many as 3-4 at the bottom and a couple on the sides. Where the panel contacts the window, it just slips up. None of this should take too much force, so if you are having to pull really hard and the panel is moving, there must be another screw or something is stuck. Careful not to break your panel. Once inside, see if there is a linkage disconnected. From what you have described, it does sound like something mechanically wrong.

I had the same problem to the T. I look online for all the same solutions and I can only tell you what worked for me. Actually what I think worked, HAHA! I went out to my truck and unplugged both battery terminals from battery and placed them together to supposedly reset the electrical system, "so I was told." After this for about 20 min or so, I went back out and in this order; re-installed positive terminal followed by negative terminal to battery. After this I checked locks and windows and surprise they worked. I've seen a lot of people say that all they did was wait and they worked later, so maybe it was that and not what I did, but who cares, they work now. Give it a shot and if it works for you, GREAT let me know, I HATE CHEVY CAUSE OF THIS......they wanted me to pay for a stupid diagnostic before they would help me........well screw you I fixed myself. LATER

Check inside wiring by the driver's side door hinge. Remove the rubber boot and you will find broken wires. Make a splice and you are fixed!

The solution to this issue was recently discovered during our most recent trip to the shop. We told them not to leave the window down when they changed the battery... BUT DID THEY LISTEN...NOOOO.
So quite by accident I was finally able to correct and then test fail the system and test and fix again...
Here you go.;
1. disconnect the battery and connect both the positive and negative cables together(after disconnected))
2. disconnect the window and lock controller in the driver's side door.
3. Leave cables connected for at least 5 minutes
4. Re-connect door window controller and locks wiring harness
5. Place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
6. Connect Battery starting with the negative cable(ensuring not to connect then disconnect, (one swift motion)
7. open drivers side door and turn key to the off position(do not remove)
8. You should hear a series of dings
9 Once dings are heard remove the key from the ignition and you should hear the door lock solenoids activate..
10. Congrats.. Your done and the windows and locks work.
