Weird door locks???

hey all. i have a weird door lock situation going on and im just looking for some insight. when i try to lock or unlock the doors from the switches nothing happens, not even the slightest movement. however when i hit the unlock on the passenger side both doors unlock but they will not lock from that side. i have checked fuses and the relay under the hood and they are good. . thanks for any help

I would start by pulling the DS switch apart and cleaning the internal contacts with WD40.

I had that exact same problem when I got my truck. Mine was a cut wire under the dash near the base of the steering column. Can remember for sure what color the wire was, Ill check when the sun comes up. It was one of the door switch wires.

As others have said, clean the contacts, contact cleaner would be a good choise as well.

Yep, contact cleaner and carb cleaner work well too. An old toothbrush will also help, jut be gentle.
