Door lock actuator
« on: October 02, 2017, 06:47:43 PM »
The slider door lock actuator is powered through the three pin contact on the leading edge of the door. These contacts can corrode  internally and prevent the slider door lock actuator from working. You can check continuity from the connector to the pins. If the two screws are removed the contact assembly can be taken off and opened to clean the contact points.
If an actuator fails when a door is locked all the doors will cycle and unlock. The door with the bad actuator motor will lock all the door properly, but you will not hear the motor. The motor windings  can be tested for continuity, with this motor the problem was obvious and I simply cleaned and lubricated  the armature.
