07 Ranger XLT PDL problem.
Im having a problem with my power door locks on my ranger. when im in the truck with the doors closed, engine off/on, doesn't matter, the door switches control the door locks as intended, with no delay. the problem occurs once i open the drivers door. the locks immediately engage as soon as i pull the handle and push the door open. with the door open they can be unlocked with either driver or passenger side switch but both switches WILL NOT lock the doors. (again, with the door open) Once the door is closed again, the buttons work as they should, unlock (up) disengages the lock, lock (down) engages the lock. the keyfob works fine.
i've read a bit about what this problem could be. some say the actuators could be bad. but why would the lock switches work perfectly with the door closed, and no power to the lock switch when the door is open? any thoughts?
