2006 Escape XLS Driver Side Door Lock Problem

A thief left my passenger door open over night after cleaning our my compartments. In the morning, I noticed that the remote wouldn't unlock the doors so I used the key. At this point I noticed the pax door was ajar and the battery was nearly dead (from the cabin lights being left on overnight I assume).

Now, the Driver side door won't unlock using the power door unlock (by remote or by push button on the door) but it will lock the door electrically. All of the other doors are normal and the driver side door still opens with the key.

Any ideas? Is it a sequencing issue with the door logic? Did I short something while boosting the Escape (3 boosts over 2 days).

Thanks,

Unhook the battery for 30 seconds and see if that helps.

If the only problem is the remote not working, try reprogramming it.

I wish it were that simple. Even the switch on the doors dont unlock or lock the drivers door. The passenger side loks and unlocks fine with the remote or either lock button in the car.

Has there been any solution posted about this issue? It sounds like a pretty common problem (most people will just pay to have it fixed), and a solution should be available. Anyone from Ford out there?
