May be just a bad switch. Try popping it out and cleaning it with some electrical cleaner, then blow it out.

Just have to do some testing to see where the power is, a lot of times between the door and door jam where the wires pass threw a wire will brake right in that area.


Lock actuator gone bad. It happened on my GS. I replace the old one...problem solved.
