Yep, that'* about right. The clicking of the relay is telling you that the relay'* contacts are moving. You can also swap the relays to see if anything inside the relay is busted (find the lock relay, pull it, and plug it in to a different circuit with the same style relay...relays are pretty common parts, you should have a few with the same part number on the top.) If the problem follows the relay, then you know the relay is bad, otherwise it'* the socket, wiring to the door lock solenoids, or the lock solenoids themselves.

Ok. I'm gonna rule out that its the lock actuators themselves, really ruling out that its the wiring (couldn't fry all 4 at once), so i'm gonna go with relay. Its not cheap, so I guess I'll be waiting a while on that. Thanks.

I'd junk yard that relay... I don't see or hear of too many of them failing...

Would you be able to get a pic of that relay?

I just had half my dash torn apart and now you want me to take it ALL APART again?

Umm, I didn't really see it there, but I guess I could look again. Ultimately tho, do I need to replace it if its just clicking? Because I don't have a spare one, so I don't want to tear it apart again unless I have a reason.

I took my wifes` apart today to check the posts and they were all clean, so it will give you good practice when you do have to replace it, it is left of the relay-bank (it will have lettrs on it just like the one in the picture) you can hear it clicking if you push either lock or unlock button...someone said find one at a junkyard(relay).
