RamMan2500 is on a distinguished road

It sounds like an actuator to me. FYI though, the actuator is built in to the latch and it is a pretty high cost part available only from the dealer. I have a 2002 2500 and I had the same issue. I discovered though that the actuator/latch assembly is the same in most chrysler vehicles with power locks. I ended up getting one from a bone yard out of a 2000 cherokee and it was identical. I had to take the striker guide off of my bad one and put it on the new one and flip one of the rod latches over on the new one, but it was the exact part and fit, plugs and all. Hope this helps.
