Re: [DML] Door Locks

When I installed the Wings-a-Loft system I had a simialr problem with door 
locking. The linkage appeared to be adjusted right but the rear latch on the 
drivers door seemed to be significantly stiffer then the rest and required a 
really good pull to unlatch. After spending a lot of time playing with the 
latches and linkage, even to the point that I rewound the driver's side 
solenoid,  I decided to go into the door lock module and replace the relays. 
Everything worked fine after that. I didn't do a "scientific investigation" 
but off hand I'm guessing the solenoid wasn't getting a strong enough pulse 
to activate the stiff latch in the unlock mode. In any event as soon as Toby 
at DPNW posted something regarding his digital module last winter I bought 
one and everything works great. Note that this won't cure mis-adjusted 
linkages but something to consider if all else is ok
