Check your fuse panel I just read a thread where the door locks quit working and it was a blown fuse.

when you push th button on the driver's side, passengers side or rmote nothing happens. The only things that happen when i lock the doors with the remote is the alarm arms and the trunk locks. I did manage to get the fuel door open manually but it'd be nice to not have to dig in the trunk every time i need to refuel

The Bentley manual has a procedure for resetting the power windows after changing the battery, but doesn't say anything about the locks.

(In case you didn't reset the windows and maybe it's related: close all windows + doors; use key in door to lock, unlock, then lock again holding it in the locked position for at least 1 full second.)

Does that mean you can't physically insert and turn it, or that you can but nothing happens when you do?

Since most people use the remote exclusively, it's not unusual that it 'freezes up' sometimes and must be worked loose again. My wife doesn't always carry the remote, so that's how I usually find out I need to use some WD-40 again to free it up.
