Power DOOR LOCK actuators....all 4 bad??

The EX I just bought works fine except for the power door locks. They kind of click, but none of them goes up or down.

What's the drill for diagnosing the system? It sounds pretty impossible that all four actuators are toast if something's happening...just not enough umphfff to get them to work?

It's very common for the actuators go out, I only have 1 working on my truck currently... They are very easy to replace, you google guzzles powerstroke and he has a pretty detailed write up on fixing them and replacing them

Yes its very common issue. There is a little contact inside the motor that causes this. I actually just did one yesterday. Heres a good write-up on it. It looks hard but its really easy. Electric Door Lock Repair

Geez, where's Dirk when I need him to be MY neighbor? Great write-up. I'll try this with a rear door and go from there.

Thanks for the link, firemaster.

Thats exactly what I did was a rear door. I will tell you this, I didnt drill out all the litle plastic pins and replace with #10 3/4 self tappers. I used a smaller drill bit and used smaller screws. End result was the same though. I think the hardest thing to do is get the lock out. The connector holding the rod for the outside door handle didnt want to seperate for me. Just get your self a shorty screwdriver in there and pop it apart. Once you do one, you'll be able to get it down to about 30 minutes a door. 4 beer minimum

I just did my passanger door and all 4 of my dads 2 weeks ago. I didn't use foil, I cut up a couple "Canadian" pennies the same size as the thermal resistor. They work kick a$$ now

I don't have factory remote door locks but would like to install after market ones, is the 1999 model adaptable for this?
