Winnie 2011 Ellipse Front Door & Lock

Hello - We have a new to us 2011 Itasca Ellipse 40CD.
The issue is the front door lock using the key fob. When you try and lock and unlock the front door the coach lights flash and the porch light comes on but no lock/unlock. (no noise at all) The key works. All the lower storage bays lock and unlock. I replaced the FOB battery right after we received the rig and it works with everything but the front door. The front door lock was working for about 4 months after we purchased the rig. I have cleaned the contacts on the door and coach and the look like they make good contact.

So the question is how in the heck do you open the door to get to the wires and solenoid? There are no screws or rivets apart from the few on the door lock itself. So before I start breaking things by not taking it apart right, I wanted to ask the question. Thanks in advance. Andrew

I am having a similar problem with my 2012 Tour, when I try to use the entry door lock switch on the passenger side or the one on the dash I don't hear anything either. I looked at the wiring diagram 177331 "Wiring Instl-Front End" on the winnebago site but can't find the wiring diagram for the 4 contact connector in the door. I'm really puzzled - tried the same things you did with the contact cleaner etc... I hope one of the others in the forum can help us.

Might want to pull the connector switch mount out of the door jamb and insure the wires are all connected to their respective push button switch. Found one of mine had caught on the poorly cut hole in the frame and pulled loose. I also filed out the hole and realigned the connector mount to ensure the push buttons moved in/out freely with no binding.
