Ok, so I have swapped motors and the car runs grea. Due to a lot of reasons, this took a year. Now, my driver door does not lock or unlock from the switch or fob. I figured it was the actuator, so I swapped it with the same result. The actuators work fine when jumped straight from a battery, but when plugged into the door, it is like they are not getting enough power. Also, the power mirrors do not work, and the driver window hesitates sometimes. Is there a main power wire to the driver door? Anyone have pin-outs of the switches? I am thinking it is a pinched wire, but I don't want to start tearing through factory wrapped looms if the pinch is not behind the door panel. Thanks, rocco

If all the other locks work it makes me wonder....Is it possible that the drivers side door switch is gone bad? Isn't that what controls the mirror and locks? Take a multi-meter and see if you have power going to the switch. If the switch is getting power, then there might be a broken wire somewhere in the door?

I actually have an extra switch. Same result. I am hoping it is some mtupid wire pinch and not the BCM. Where should I start testing for power? I was also thinking it may be a loose wire in a connector.
