Hi,
That's not much detail to go on... but I assume you've got the Essex keypad like my 2003 Dynasty.
Neither of mine were working when we got the coach, so I replaced both my keypad and the wireless module (the keypad and wireless systems are totally separate from each other). And here's what I learned:

I had to replace our Essex keypad. A1 Electric in Torrance CA has the KE-1701BHC keypad with the original Monaco connector.
I also had to reprogramm the remote key fobs.

The door entry keypad (Essex 1704) and the Autoloc (KL550) FOB unit are two separate units but connected together via wiring. Do you have the green/white and blue/white wires from the KL550 connected to the 1704?

Interesting. I'm surprised it's different from the 2003 Dynasty. If yours is configured like that, disregard my other thread.
The dynasty has the wireless module totally separate, under the dash, and not connected to the Essex keypad (other than both units grounding the same lock solenoids up in the electrical bay).

I think you are describing the same thing - both units are separate but have wires that connect to locks (grounds).
In the diagram it looks like the wires from Essex and KL550 go to each other and no where else - but they may be connected together at the point where they "connect to door lock motor ground wire".

If this is the way it works - then would the power door lock motor have +12V power all the time and only operate/open-lock when ground is applied? Or maybe this is the ground for a relay that sends power to door lock motor to lock-unlock.
I don't know for sure.

I don't know for sure.
I'm not sure it's a super-important distinction, but I think mine is different.
The Remote Lock and Remote Unlock wires on my Essex keypad do go into the plug, but my wiring diagram doesn't show them going all the way to the wireless unit.
In the diagram you attached, which is also detailed in my old original Essex paperwork, the wireless module grounds the Essex keypad's "Remote Lock/Unlock" wires; which triggers the Essex keypad to ground the lock relay.
In my arrangement, I beleive the two units each directly ground the lock relay.
In other words, the wireless module doesn't connect to the Essex orange and white wires, it connects to the same relays that the Essex Lock and Unlock wires connect to.
The lock motors don't have power applied all the time; there are relays in the forward electrical bay that power the lock motors to lock and unlock.
