August 17, 2010The door lock on the driver side seems to not unlock 75% of the time. I took the door panel of and thought it was the door lock acuator but it it seems as when I move the rod inside the door for the outside door handle to the right position, the door unlocks and locks with no problem. Any ideas? It only happens during unlock and that can be with the key, door lock switch or keypad. Thanks

August 17, 2010those actuators are well known for going bad.
mess with it and it will work for a while then crap out again.
August 17, 2010I just tried to replace one, got it unbolted easily enough but I couldn`t get the damn thing past the window track, so I just put it back together for now, like gearjammer said it`s working good now for some reason, but I`m sure it could crap out at any time
