Figured it out just the other day, the previous owner had someone put in aftermarket lock actuators, instead of replacing the factory ones, once I realized they were not supposed to be there, and were not needed, I took them out, and just went to Ford today to pick up two new ones (they were $50 each, which isn't too bad considering they are an updated part # and version, so they "should" last longer. At least Ford recognized the problem that they don't last long enough. Additionally, $100 isn't too bad considering that I was able to fix two of them with the aluminum foil on the transistor in the electrical motor trick and they work great! Broke one of the actuators, and one was faulty in another aspect, so thats why I bought 2 new ones. Hopefully I can get those both in today. Thanks for the help regardless.
Doing it right, up in the mitten!
