The problem is definitely in the lock module then. Unfortunately, you
have just moved beyond my realm of expertise - I'm not an electrical
engineer, either - so I'll have to bow out. I see Elvis responded, if
anyone can help you solve this he's your man. He's helped me out on
several occasions with things like this. ;-)

Good luck, and sorry I couldn't be of more help!
