door lock/ keyless entry

my driver side door lock has quit working when i hit the lock or unlock button, also, im wondering if my truck should have keyless entry? I got a fob when i bought the truck but it doesnt work, i changed the battery in it and tried to program it but still nothing. any ideas on this? could the 2 problems be related?

I don't think they're related. I've had switches go bad on me before. The keyless entry worked fine

that just puts you into the programming mode for the keyless entry fobs...has nothing to do with PATS
