    Anyone run into issues with loss of power to the door lock actuators? Recently tested and my actual parts are not faulty but they aren't getting power somewhere. Is this a typical issue on these cobras?

    Any tips or recommendations on how to remedy the issue? Power locks do not work via the key fob or the switch inside the car.

    Thanks in advance!

    First thing I'd check are the fuses. From there look at the switches. Do both doors not work no matter which button is pressed?

    Yeah fuses all seemed to be good. Lock switches and key fob do not actually lock/unlock the car. You can just hear them clicking.

    My locks have gotten stuck from time to time over the Years.

    Mostly not go down when locked. Have to push it

    After a couple shots of wd40. Issues seams to stop and lock works

    Ive had this issue before, try re-seating/cleaning the connectors on both doors. The driver side connector was my issue when my passenger side stopped working electrically.

    If you tested the actuator separately by applying power to it then I would check the wiring in the door from the body. The wires get brittle from opening and closing the door and I have repaired several vehicles because the wires break.
