Pass Door Wont Lock/Unlock W/Key (not remote related)

It was working before, Turn the key left and car would unlock (still does) as well as window roll down (ass rolled down on my hand while I was taking the door panel apart to inspect the door lock cylinder lol) and it worked before locking the door and rolling the window up with the key but now after removing all of my interior to dye, it wont lock the pass door. IF I lock the door from the inside it works, and if I unlock with the key in the door it will unlock the pass door, just wont lock the pass door with the key and arm the alarm.

So I don't know if I disconnected something and forgot to reconnect when putting things back together.... But half of it works.

Has anyone had this issue? Right now I can confirm that the door locks work whenever they wanna work. Using the key. I could go out right now and the door locks might work or they might not. Its random. Whenever it works, the horn will beep once and the alarm light will blink to show its armed.

I think its the Door Lock Control Module inside the driverside door. Since that is what sends the signal to lock all the doors or unlock, Unlock works every time, just not Lock.

A honk means something is wrong.

Do you have a Bentley? It's a simple circuit, so testing a few test points would tell you what's going on.
Check for ground signal at the immobilizer for the lock and unlock wires when that circuit is activated to confirm that the drivers lock mechanism microswitches are working correctly. Then check to see that the passenger door interlocks are sending the correct ground signal to the immobilizer to let it know that it's ok to lock the passenger door and arm the alarm.

My guess is probably the "passenger door safe" microswitch, but testing will tell you for sure.

I know the honk means something is wrong. Whats wrong is the car believes I am continuously trying to unlock the doors because it believes the doors are unlocked. Which the system technically is. I was told it is possibly a dirty micro switch for the lock. Because it works some of the time. Now... I just need to get off my butt and take it apart to inspect it.
