2003 Pilot EX-L Door Lock Issue

My 2003-Pilot now is approaching 60k Miles. The front passenger door lock no longer responds to the keyless remote or the interior power open/close
buttons on the driver and front seat passenger doors. The only way to lock/unlock this door is to manually use the latch inside or the key on the front passenger door. This is real inconvience upon leaving the vehicle when trying to activate alarm system.
Note: When using the actual key to lock/unlock the front passenger door, all vehicle locks work as expected. Any thoughts on what is broken. Is this a simple repair?
TIA,

The actuator has seized up due to contamination or it has a corroded ground or corrosion inside it's connector. I don't see any 'door panel removal sheets' here: http://www.hondasuv.com/pilot/viewtopic.php?t 0 You could sign in and SEARCH to find detailed instructions on how to pop off the door panel, or just DIY using the CR-V instructions which are here, under 'tweeter kit': http://www.hondasuv.com/crv/viewtopic.php?t50 You'll need the exploded diagrams of the window 'guts' from www.slhondaparts.com to see which one is the actuator, and you might want to order your part from there once you determine if yours is shot or just playing possum. I've removed the 'latch' assembly from a CR-V and it's not a walk in the park. The return spring inside the actuator was folded in half and jammed. I had the Helms shop manual and it's still a three-handed job to remove. Be especially careful to not change the effective length of the rods (by screwing / unscrewing their threaded tips.
That said, you certainly can DIY, but check for the corroded connections first. Always look for the obvious problem first.
