    Recently the door lock/unlock action on my 2000 has become predictably unreliable. Be it from the fob or door armrest controller toggles, the passenger and rear doors do not activate enough to disengage the locking mechanism....majority of the time. Driver side and cargo door/window perform reasonably well. I've swapped out he battery in the fob, but did not see any improvement
    Is there a sticky note on this I've overlooked? Maybe someone has some insight?
    Thanks

    Door lock actuator is likely dying. Youtube videos are available. I gambled with the china made actuators from Ebay, $12 got me a left and a right, and it's working beautifully for 1-2 months now.

    Those 2000 era door lock actuator motors are notorious. They all fail, half-fail, intermittently fail and need replacement. Some of the replacements are cheap junk.

    Shop by price and you'll be doing the job twice.
