Door lock actuator and keyless entry

Hello, whats the second connector for the door lock actuator using 3 pins on the ep3 type r? Why do some models not have it? It works fine connecting only the 2 pin connector.
Also seeking help why key fob keeps forgetting programming every few hours. Should I change the receiver unit or perhaps the fob? This started happening after jump starting it first time after the winter.
