Default Door lock actuator

Just bought a 05 pt and the 2 front door don't lock or unlock, either with door switch,and fob also with key lock,once nothing happened and twice all back door unlock,and lock,with fob,key,door switch. Now Rockauto has only the front door actuator for the convertible, which are a little different from the wagon pt. Any idea where to find this door actuator.And why the 2 front door motor quit.

Have you tried any troubleshooting? There could be a few things that could be wrong. Don't just load up the parts cannon and fire. Seems like a wire could be loose. Check for blown fuses also.

I took the actuator out of the door and tried it with a 12 v battery and the motor don't work at all. I found a left and right on ebay,so I'll try that when they get here. It is odd that both door quit and rear one work.

Always look for the common denominator of cause. When SOOO BIG's rear hatch open function stopped activating I checked out all circuits for continuity and power. Checked fuses, check wire continuity and power flow and viability of the functions at the rear hatch itself. I use two straight pins stuck in any suspect wire, Use a long wire if it's a distance, hooked to a simple $10 electronic tester and if I have power flow and continuity it'll show. Continuity, pin to pin. Power, input to ground. A small dot of super glue will seal the pin hole if necessary.

In this case the poorly designed electronic pressure switch had dysfunctioned in the open position and burned out that part of the remote control entry module. As that module had a two side function the doors still activated. Replacing the pressure switch assembly on the hatch and the remote control entry module solved the problem.

SOOO BIG is happy that his back door is working again. I can only imagine, me not being a car, it might have been like constipation!

Good luck
