If there is no keyless entry, then there is no power lock motor in the driver's door. The keyless entry install kit comes with a motor to unlock and lock the driver's door. It is not wired in with the rest of the door lock system, as it is only wired into the keyless entry module. Even the rest of the car door locks are not wired into the keyless entry module. Here's how it all works:
Keyless entry module activates the driver's door lock motor, which is attached to the lock lever. There is a switch inside the lock lever on the driver's door that activates the rest of the door lock motors. Since the driver door unlocks and locks, but not the rest, it could mean two things:
the lock switch in the driver's door is bad, or you have a blown fuse. Check the fuse first, then check the switch. The double press or hold down won't do any good.
In 1997 they changed everything- all doors now have a lock motor, and there is an external lock switch on the panels for the driver and front passenger.

My wife's 96 OBW does the same thing. The fun part of her lock issue is it is intermittent! It works better in cold weather than hot, but not always. Sometimes it opens all 4 and the hatch when it is 4000 degrees inside the car in blazing sun....go figure. Intermittent problems suck. Please post back if the switch thing clears it up for you if it isn't a fuse.
I have a 1996 OBW. The door lock will lock with the remote but only the drivers door will unlock. Likewise, the drivers door will lock the other 3 doors but will not unlock the other 3 doors.
How do I fix?

Does the key unlock them all?

I had the same issue with my 96 OBW.
The remote unlocks the drivers door only. However, today the locks worked properly a few times.
They worked great when cold and would work spartically at best.
I ended up finding the fix for the issue, takes about hour to fix it.
Here is my write up, let me know if you have any more ?
