[DML] Re: Door Locks

John - The issue could be with the bell crank "wiper switches" or with 
the solenoids.  The solenoids have two separate windings - one for 
the "lock" direction, and the other for the "unlock" direction.  If you 
have a solenoid that has failed in one direction, this will result in 
the symptoms you describe.  The other cause for this condition is a 
faulty bell crank wiper switch.  The switches in each door are there to 
provide positional information to the lock module, which then activates 
the other side to get agreement on position (locked or unlocked) for 
both doors.  If the wiper switch adjustment is bad, you can reset the 
adjustments per the shop manual or the service bulletin that deals with 
setting the latches and locks.  If the solenoid has gone bad, which 
seems likely given the sudden onset of your problem, then replacement 
is your only option.  As an ultimate solution to these types of door 
lock issues, might I suggest our Door Lock Combo Kit (K2916DP) which 
replaces the solenoids with linear actuators and replaces the 
problematic door lock module with the latest in digital upgrades for 
this component?  The internal diagnostics in this digital module will 
help to troubleshoot any existing door lock linkage or mechanism issues 
as well.
