Power Locks Don't Work.

No my truck is not falling apart!

The locks on my truck want to lock or unlock when I hit the button on either the door or the fob however, they don't.

I can hear them all trying but not doing much.

In fact I think the right rear door is the only one that completely works most of the time. Occasionally the passenger front door will work too.

Do they need to be lubed up or what?

I cant imagine 3/4 actuators are all bad...but who knows. Theres a fix around the site that will fix them for nearly nothing but your time if the actuators are indeed gone. Someone will post it that knows where it is cuz I dont!

Did the search function get fixed yet?

I tried searching but was having odd issues with random stuff.

Works like a charm, I did all 4 of mine, they unlock and lock with authority now!! works great, I drilled all the way thru the case at the weld points and put small zipties thru the holes and glued the cases back together..
