Default Door lock problem - DIFFERENT - check it out

Hey, my wife's 01 PT classic edition has an unusual problem with the power door lock on the driver's side: it won't unlock. Now, we don't have a single problem with unlocking from the passenger side or with the remote, and it will lock the doors just fine. When I press "unlock" there is just the click of the switch and nothing else. I just ordered a replacement switch and installed it to no avail - problem still exists with the new switch. Any suggestions?

thanks,

Chris

the actuator might be toasted, or the linkage could be broken/ jammed. you'll have to pull of the door panel to find out.

What would I be looking for? I've had the door panel off to replace the switch itself, and the door will open with the pull handle on inside and outside just fine. The door unlocks if you hit the passenger side switch, it's just the driver switch. It really seems to be some kind of electronic issue to me, since everything else works, but any help is appreciated.
