Has anyone experienced anything like this? I noticed it this morning. All the other doors locked and unlocked with the remote lock and automatic lock button in the car. However, the driver-side lock was not responding at all.

It sounds like the door lock actuator has failed. It is a replaceable part, but the service provider needs to open up the door to get to it, so it can have a bit of labor involved, though the part is inexpensive.

I had this happen to me in my 2010 Mazda 3, and it turned out to be the set screws used to clamp the solenoid to the locking wire inside the door had loosened up. I removed the door panel, and tightened those, and it fixed the problem.

My 2006 Acura TSX had this issue. Yes the actuator a fairly inexpensive repair I belive around 250 for the acura so possibly a little less for a Mazda.
