Question Door locks not working.

Alright here'* my problem, I flooded my car about a year ago. The door locks haven't worked since.

There is no clicking from under the passenger side hush panel, like others have explained, just nothing.

The water never touched the fuse boxes or the door panels, well at least not high enough to do damage to the door lock switches.

I've checked both fuse boxes and replaced all blown fuses, so its not a fuse problem.

I am pretty stumped by this problem because, I don't see how the door locks could have been affected, and I don't even know were to start.

Any help is appreciated, and thank you in advance

Must have missed this. Check the bus grounds. I believe yoru car has those under both front doors. There'* a write up in the tech info area about that.

i guess theres no edit button anymore :p.. I just checked those busses.. and they were both comepletly spotless.. but i did notice there was a clicking sound coming from under my seat.. after i took one of the busses out and put it back in.. im not sure what it is.. but the clicking is coming from a black box thing.. makes me think its a relay??

ill take a picture of the box under my seat tonight.. or tomorrow.. whenever i can get my hands on a camera.
