?? Power Door Locks ??

Question for the tech gurus out there:

My power locks are not working on my 2000 v6 mustang. I can hear the mechanism attempt to unlock/lock my doors on both sides but it seems like it is lacking power. The car was like that when I purchased it. I did all the simple things like replaced battery and fuses after I purchased it. If it helps I have no other electrical issues I know of and my trunk release works fine both from the keyfob as well as the glovebox release. Any and all info would help (and I did search before posting)

I would imagine the mechanism inside the doors is going out. However, the chances of both sides going out at the same time seems very unlikely. I don't know a ton about this topic, so hopefully someone will chime in that does.

the only 3 thing i can think of is that their is:
1 a bad ground some were around the power door lock mechanism
2 possibly the wires are stripped
3 thier is alot of friction some were that is not allowing the door thingy go up

try taking off the door panel and give further inspection

That was the first thing I checked when I purchased the car. I replaced any and all blown fuses (went to the junkyard and filled my pockets.. ) But I dont think it's a fuse issue. I think there are some relays though that might cause an issue, but normally relays either work or they dont

No sorry man. I haven't even messed with them. I'm ordering new door panels soon so I will fux with em when I have the panels off. But if anyone wants to chime in please do so

One of a few things could be going out. My first opinion is that the door lock actuators are going bad. The chances of both going together is slim but possible if the windows were both used equally. Usually it would be the drivers door first. Mine would actually get stuck and kill my battery by constantly pulling from the battery when I'd lock my car.

No battery issues (minus the one that came with the car was shot) But since I replaced no issues at all. Buddy of mine told me that sometimes cleaning the parts and I guess lubing them () sometimes helps. Prolly will take it tom my electric wiz of a friend but he's like 45 min away so I rarely make the trip.

I'm willing to bet the lock actuators have gone out.

You probably need new ones :Products - Latemodel Restoration Supply

And when you install the new ones, make sure the little indicator pin (The thing that sticks up at the top of your door) moves without alot of friction, I think this is the main culprit for wearing out these actuators.
