I have a parasitic drain on my battery from somewhere downstream of the power door lock fuse… Was thinking of replacing actuators to see if they were the problem, but holy cow that’s a lot of effort to get to them.

Michael DeCarlo says:

Before taking the door apart, is there a way to test to be sure the actuator is bad and the problem isn't somewhere else?

Dave says:

id b testing it before i button it up u just have to plug the console in

Brian Dennison says:

Did anyone notice he broke the clip off from the keypad taking it out. I left mine in no need to take it out changing an actuator.

Frank M says:

My 04 f150 drivers side lock will only work from the passenger side switch then the drivers side unlock its self almost immediately? Drivers side switch doesn't work either so I replaced the switch still doesn't work.

Dave says:

My door lock doesn't lock after seeing this night mare jo'm doding it manually and use a wow. this would be 300 job or more at the shop

Tyson A says:

How do I open door of the lock is seized. Plus my lock actuator is in a different housing

Javier Trantow says:

Is this the same procedure for the door switch that triggers the door ajar alarm?

roboink says:

Ok, thanks will check it out when I get some dry weather.

roboink says:

So I replaced my door lock switch and door lock acuator because my drivers side switch will not lock the drivers side door. My key fob and passenger side switch will lock the door. The drivers side switch will unlock but not lock…? I bought a dorman lock acuator and when I reinstalled it it did not lock into place.
