Doc here,

Then the first step is determine that the RF unit is getting proper POWER and GROUND..and is programmed to the remote fob...

IF that is good, determine if it has a MCR or a master control relay..If it does, Is it firing (going Click, Click with the fob) If it does not check the RF unit for a relay control output..If it does, Check the Contact input for power.

If that shakes out..

Isolate each pop solenoid, Determine that they are in fact 12 volts..then jumper each to a proved power and ground..they should open on red to red, black to black, and close on red to black ..If they don't do that..you have some bad solenoids OR major mechanical issues with the linkage..

If the Solenoids DO pop, and the the RF unit has power and ground, but no power in-between .. you have a defective unit..send it back for repair/replacement..

BTW: you might want to consider a few things here..ONE: Install an Electrical hidden pop switch in case the The Fob has a dead battery in the middle of the sultan sink..and TWO : Install a mechanical hidden pop cable to open a door in case the battery goes FLAT dead..

Doc

I have remote doors on the Elky.
The door handles were left on just 'cause I thought it looks a bit authentic, however, they are inoperable.

My remote will open the doors or roll the windows down.

Also in the eventual event of remote failure, the doors and windows can be operated by a key.

On top of that, there is an access switch for each door/window hiding elsewhere in the car, accessable from outside.

All of these are operated by separate dedicated circuits.

And of course---emergency mechanical, again HIDING, under the car.

I also wired a switch in to disable the remote.

Yep, I know, overdone, but I have no desire to have to break into the car, in the event of an electrical failure.

This has happened to me--internal relay failure--after sending back for repair/replacement, I added additional relays to the box, to keep the high draw solenoids from powering thru the remote box.
The instructions said that the box could take 30amps, but I still fried an internal relay.

Doc here,

There is a emergency method (although I only recommend it in a pinch..) for opening the doors if the battery ever goes to the happy hunting ground AND you have no access to it..(inside hood pop)

Get a Bud with a set of jumpers and CAREFULLY hook the power to the solenoid big bolt from under the car..to the jump vehicle..THEN hook the ground to any body part..and open a door (S) to gain access...

I think he is implying that his passenger side is working correctly.
That is the impression I get.

HE doesn't indicate left or right just that you can't open them..

HOWEVER , if it is one side only..Simple..check the power to the left solenoids from the RF unit..or MCR..follow that up with a ground check on that side..you may have to install wire braid between the door and door posts..
