Power door locks not working

I have an early 99 F-350 crew cab. The door locks attempt to move but will not lock or unlock when the switch is acctivated. This problem is on all doors. It would be awesome if someone could help me.

Do a search for "door locks" there's also a write up on it in the tech section. You will need to take the accuators out of the doors and take the case apart to get the little electric motor out. Take the motor apart and wrap the little rectangle piece in foil or cut a piece of metal (penny) and replace it back in the motor and reassemble. It really is easier than it sounds, I just explained the very basics of how to do it.

Hey thanks Stroken7.3. Sounds a little complicated but it might be worth a try.

It's really not as hard as it sounds. I did mine and my dads in September, the first one took me about 1.5 hours and the rest were 30 minutes or less.

I put off doing it for 2 years. I wish I hadn't, it was simple and worth the time.

That does seem simple but I found it easier just to put an aftermarket actuator and connect it to the oem wires. Takes less than 10 minutes a door. I guess thats free and I spent 7 bucks on each actuator. Oh well.
