Default Lock button on keyless entry

My keyless entry lock button on drivers door doesn’t work now. It works fine on passenger door though. I push it and nothing happens. I’ve tried both keys, and changed the key battery but still doesn’t work.
Anyone find a solution? Does the handle have to be replaced? What was the cost to replace/fix?
thanks for any help!

This guy had the same problem. Turned out to be his battery.

I've had that, wires in the handle had broken (poor design). Bought a replacement handle but it was just easier to repair the wires as the new handle needs to be painted.

Btw if you want a new handle mines sitting on the shelf.

Thanks guys for the reply! My battery seems fine. Also forgot to say I have a ‘13 C2S. Anyone replace the internal pieces and use the original handle? How much VII7?
Appreciate the help!

It's free if you fix the wiring, the dealer will ask for $500.
If you want my handle I'll ship it to you for $40.

A 6 year old battery is suspect.

Happened to my '13 C2S, they replaced the handle under CPO warranty.

Before taking handle off, I’d, just for kicks, put in a new battery. I know you said it was replaced 3 yrs ago, couldn't hurt.

Well, I replaced the battery and still no workee. So thanks to VII7 he’s sending me his new handle and off to the dealer I go next week. Maybe it’ll be the wire came loose as said and won’t have to replace handle. I guess there are sensors in the handle that senses the key as well. Will report back.
Thanks!
Rob
