Default power door locks not working

My power door locks aren't working on my 1993 mustang 2.3l. I can use the key on the passenger side door to lock and unlock, but I can't do nothing with the driver's side door. It has power going to the door locks, but they won't work. Any help?

time to pop the door panels off and check the rod and connector at the door key cylinder on the side that turns freely and check for a bind on the side that doesn't turn.

Your actuators could be dead if there is no bind or anything caught up on the rods. Mine went bad and I didnt even bother to fix them. Its like a 40+ dollar part.

Those door lock motors have a habit of failing, either from water getting in through a broken rubber boot, or just from wear. If they're binding this way, they'll be hard to lock/unlock with a key. I've had to replace four of them.
