Default Power Door Lock Unlock Problem

Hello,

I've recently been having problems with my power door locks. They lock fine, but unlock is not working. Both drivers and passengers side along with the key fob lock fine.

Things I've checked:
I put a test light on the white wire off the door lock switch, tested both driver and passenger sides. Switches seem fine.
Checked the wires in the door grommet.

Some things I noticed are:
When pushing LOCK then quickly after pushing UNLOCK, I'm able to hear the actuator move a little. Waiting a half second longer, it barely makes any sound at all. Anything after that, there'* nothing. It'* almost like its discharging or something.

Is there anything else I should check?

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Ok, well I found theres a door lock relay under the drivers seat, which I'll start checking connections on tomorrow. So far it seems more like the relay is the problem, since the wiring seems fine so far. I guess I'll find out more tomorrow.

Default Door Latch Stuck

Hey guys were you able to resolve this? My door latch is completely stuck. I was having problems on occasion opening my door from the outside with the key, I found it was because on occasion the latch wouldn't fully close.

Now my **** of the drivers side door lock doesn't open to it'* fullest, and eventually trying to mess around with the handle, somethings not right as it'* completely lose. The door doesn't open at all.

Please help?

You would have to pull the door trim panel off to see what has come loose. There are rods that connect the inside release handle to the latch mechanism, the lock **** to the latch, etc. One of the rods could be bent or out of position. Of course, the latch itself could need replacing. Only way to tell is open it up and see what is going on inside.
