My rear driver's side door lock is not working properly. I've noticed over the past weeks that I'll use the key fob to unlock all the doors then I open the front door, set my stuff on the seat, then go to open the rear door but it's still locked. I'd then hit the unlock button on the front door and it'd unlock the rear door. My wife noticed this weekend (she had the truck saturday) that she locked all the doors with the key fob but the rear driver's door sometimes wouldn't lock. I then played with it and it seems like it sometimes responds and sometimes doesn't respond to both unlocking and locking (with the key fob or front door button). It works manually. I checked the child safety lock it's unlocked.

What do you think, motor going bad? Anyone know what these cost and is it as easy as swapping it out? I'm not very keen on electrical things...

Thanks.

I would think that this would still be under the warranty and that the dealership shouldn't give you any hassle about replacing it. Keep us updated.

Thanks, stopped by dodge today. They said it's not covered. I bought used and think I only had the bumper to bumper for so many miles and I have nearly 60k so seems reasonable...

I don't know a lot about electrical stuff but if someone could help me out on a step by step on how to test if the motor is good/bad I would appreciate it, I have a voltmeter and all just don't really know how to set it up and use it. Now's as good a time as any to learn, right?

The motor is like $85 so that's not so bad. The BCM (he called it a PITM I think?) is like $600 or something....so I'd like to test the motor and hopefully that's the culprit. Any help appreciated!
