water + truck = BAD

ok so if any of you guys can help me it would save me a ton of time..... if you read my previous post you know that i rolled my truck in a canal anyway im having BIG PROBLEMS with the power door locks. if i hit the switch on the door i can hear the relay clicking under the dash but the locks dont go up or down. i tested them and they are getting power to the actuator but they dont move. is it possible if 2 of the 4 locks went under water that it may have shorted out all of the actuators? ive had 3 different people try to help me and we cant figure it out. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are the rods seized with rust or crud? If they are getting power but aren't moving then it's either the actuator or the rods are stuck.

I'm really sorry dude but after reading the title and then your opening sentence about rolling in a canal I was expecting some serious problem and then read it's the door locks lol.

That really sucks about the canal tho. Was there other damage that you have already addressed?

well i figured this mess out...if the doors go under water the sensor that tells the truck whether the doors are "ajar" or not stops working and therefore it causes the door locks to not work. Problem solved.....lol
