Default 2004 Vue Automatic Loc issue

I have a 2004 Vue FWD VD that recently has had an issue with the automatic door locks. The button on the door doesn't work, but the doors do automatically lock if I put the car in drive. A workaround to be able to lock all doors including the hatch that I've been doing is to put it in drive, let it lock all doors automatically and then cut the engine off before putting it back in park. Is this a fuse issue and if so, which one? Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Welcome to Saturn orphan central.

More questions than answers at this point:

1. So, you don't have keyless entry?

2. Have you tried front passenger door/unlock switch?

3. Will either switch unlock doors after you use your method to lock?

Its probably safe to say BCM and lock and unlock relay network is still working OK.

This does leave you with possibly one or more bad switches or perhaps broken wire in door hinge area.

We'll be able to provide better assistance after you answer questions.

Thanks for taking a look at this!

1. So, you don't have keyless entry? no

2. Have you tried front passenger door/unlock switch? Yes, neither works

3. Will either switch unlock doors after you use your method to lock? No, I can only unlock manually by pushing the knob open on each door or by cranking the car and it automatically opens all doors.

Check for blown LOCK/MIRROR 10A fuse in Instrument Panel fuse block.

The cover would be next to seated front passengers left foot and there's a map on back of cover.
