Check the plug on the door lock actuator. It may have gotten bumped and disconnected while you were doing the other repair. HTH. -Jim

The plug and actuator are inside the door behind the door panel. HTH. -Jim


Ok now if it's ok could it be bad or is it just stuck

Could be the rod going to the latch, inside the door, is binding. HTH. -Jim


How do you fix that and if the actuator is bad how do you test it
