Hello and thank you for using FixYa!
Most likely the remote has failed. If you have another remote for the car, try it. All features should work on the spare remote. You will need to get another remote and program it to correct this. Here is a link on how to program it.

you may need to replace the door locking actuator, they do tend to go bad over times. does the driver side door lock automatic when using the lock button on the driver side. if you can lock and unlock the driver side door with a switch, my guess would not be the locking actuator, it might be in the remote locking module.

If it is a factory keyless system than you do need it done by the dealer, but if it is an after market system then reply back with manufacture and model.

their is no doubt some way to reset it by turning the key so many times left and right ?? but try this ,and that put key in drivers side lock and lock and open three times slowly then open door on last attempt and try to start within 15 secs of opening the door lock ,also try the spare key in case the chip has fallen out of the key ??
