lock actuator or bad connection

Thanks for your prompt response. Would the acuator cause the passenger lock to not work either when I press the passenger side switch? Seems more of a central problem than an actuator. Thanks. I will take off the panel and get to the acuator in the mean time, is there any way to test it? Thanks again. Nick


if the central locking switch or the remote locks the rear doors then the actuators or the wires in the door jams could be the issue. Start by checking the wires in the doors where the hinges are

I will check that, thanks. The driver's side powerdoor lock switch does not work, nor the passengers. Additionally, the rear doesn't work either. The remote doesn't work either, only to arm the alarm.

Wires are fine by the door hinge.

Update: I have power at the fuse.

Update:. All locks now lock but they don't unlock.

Anyway to check this? Thanks


yes with a multi-meter tester

Thanks, I bought an acuator and will get it this weekend.
