Driver door won’t unlock with keyless entry

new here, 2019 ILX base. My girlfriend’s driver door won’t unlock with the keyless entry. All the other doors will unlock when you walk up, but the driver door won’t anymore. It won’t unlock from the inside either. Where should I start troubleshooting?

Also, what’s the best upgraded rotors and brake pads I can get?
Thanks for the help.

The first simple reason the driver side door won't unlock with remote is that your key fob or car remote is out of battery. After a long time of use, the key fob battery can be exhausted, usually from 3 to 4 years. Normally, your remote will respond or send a signal when you request it within a maximum distance of 15m.

This usually happens because of low batteries, but shock can also cause the fob to lose its pairing. Most remotes can be reset, so check your car's user manual for the resetting sequence. If resetting fails to solve the problem, the fob will need to be reprogrammed.
For the issue with the driver door not unlocking, there are a few potential causes that you can check. First, make sure that the battery in the key fob is not dead, as this can prevent the door from unlocking. If the battery is fine, then it may be an issue with the lock actuator or a wiring problem. You can try removing the door panel and checking the wiring connections to make sure they are secure, and test the lock actuator to see if it is working properly.
As for upgraded rotors and brake pads, there are many options available depending on your driving needs and preferences. Some popular brands include Brembo, EBC, and StopTech. It's important to make sure that any aftermarket parts you choose are compatible with your specific ILX model and will provide the performance you're looking for. You can consult with a trusted mechanic or do some research online to find the best options for your needs.
