Exclamation Power Door Lock Problems...

Ok so here is the problem... i have a 1997 ram 1500 and my power door locks will lock but wont unlock. i can lock it with the key and from the passenger switch inside and the drivers side has been completely removed and the wires capped of by the p/o. it has just started doing this yesterday and im stumped why. it seems that both of the doors are getting power as they both lock just fine but just click when trying to lock them. the relay is clicking under the dash when hitting either button and the light comes on when trying to unlock but it wont actually unlock. i thought maybe it could be the actuators but i have never heard of them both going at the same time. if you guys have any ideas of what it could be i would really appreciate the help.

Thanks guys

I'd lean towards the master switch on the driver's door.

So you have power to the relay for unlocking check connections from the relay back to the locks

Last week , I noticed that my passenger side door lock was locking and unlocking only intermittently. This week it stopped working altogether. Now my driver side lock is doing the same thing. However, if I come to a stop and try to open the "auto locking" door with the manual handle, it will not pop the lock up or unlock door. Seems like that in itself is a safety issue of important investigation for Dodge.
Can anyone Help at all in this forum. Thanks, I appreciate any feed back or comments.
