My driver side power door lock is malfunctioning.  It works when I press the unlock side, but not when I press lock.  Do i need to replace the actuator or is it less complicated than that?

Will the door lock with your key fob, or with the switch on the passenger side? If so, it's your switch. Switch is going to be the most common failure here.
