There's a small motor in the latch mechanism that turns to activate and deactivate the locking mechanism (actuator). There have been some cases of the motors not running.

The motors run for about 2 seconds to complete the action. When the keyless entry control button is pressed, you can hear the actuators working. Do you hear anything at the passenger door.

Do all the other doors, (rear passenger doors and the rear gate) lock and unlock as they should.
