Default Remote door locks

I just bought a replacement remote for my 2001 Saturn SL-2. Today a lock shop programmed it, but the remote will only unlock the driver's door. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

Welcome to SaturnFans, Burtboywonder! I don't know how helpful my comments will be, but here goes...

I've had two RKE (Remote Keyless Entry) transmitters programmed successfully at two different dealerships. Each button when depressed acted as designed. There's always the possibility that you received a defective unit, but I wouldn't go there yet. BTW, were you programming a brand new transmitter or a used one? Both new and used units have been paired with my car. When the used one was brought in for programming I was immediately told that there was no guaranty that the programming would be successful, but it was.

Did the lock shop attempt a reprogramming of the transmitter? If not, that is the first thing which should be pursued. (However, the shop may charge you again for reprogramming since you didn't purchase the transmitter from them.) In any event, I'm somewhat suspicious that your RKE transmitter wasn't properly programmed. These transmitters can be reprogrammed and paired to any car which has the correct receiver present.

There might be a problem with the locking mechanism. Have you checked it already?
