Hi, my name is***** your mechanic automotive expert, and I will be happy to assist you today. In some cases, I may need more information to assist better. I apologize for any delay.

Dear customer, based on the information you present, your failure is a bit complicated because it is clearly a problem at the configuration level of the central locking system but i observed that you have already replaced the front door module, now I don't know if you replaced the main module of the centralized locking system, in addition, once the module is replaced, a configuration is carried out through a diagnostic tool, you have to take this into account.

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I did not change the main module
after changing the main module I have to recode the central locking software?
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 16 days ago.

Yes dear customer, each time a module a module of the central locking is replaced we need to recode the software.

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
recoding must be done when replacing any module at the door or recoding must be done only when changing the main module
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 16 days ago.

Most of the door modules are plug and play. But some of them causes this kind of problem and a reset must done to recode.
This seems to be your case.

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
because the new module did the same job as the original one (the door on the remote control is locked but no longer opens on the remote control) I assume that the original module works well and I put it back and that is another problem
do you have a garage where I can come and recode the software
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 16 days ago.
If you tell me your location I can help with a garage
