Entry Door Lock on 2013 Monaco Diplomat 43DFT

Hello Friends.

On our new to us Monaco, I am having an issue with the key fob not locking or unlocking the entry door. Its just a lock or unlock fob.

When you push the button the turn signals blink showing its talking to the coach however no door mechanism is actuated.

Any ideas before I take door latch cover off? I looked on the driver side from bay which has all the fuses and harnesses and see there is a squae push in fuse for both lock and unlock entry door. Could there also be a auto spade fuse for that as well I am missing?

Thank you.

It might be a minor alignment issue at this point (8 years old) or might just need some lubrication. Does the lock make any noise like its trying to operate? Also is it TriMark? Their products don't have the best longevity track record.

Thank you for the response. Yes its Trimark and I found the problem.

After checking the transmitter under the dash lid and the antenna I was able to get the transmitter to click when I pushed the key fob.

Found that the two sensors in the door frame were rusted and stuck closed. They are called the Bridge Connection. Two spring loaded metal posts that close with the door and make contact.

I steel wooled them and cleaned up the contact to get them moving in and out. Door lock works just fine now.

Thank you again.
