Ok, I retested everything and let's go by steps to stay organized.
Took the whole panel off and the problem as described earlier:
-door lock can be operated from the remote, door knob and the Passenger LOCK button, but the Driver side "LOCK" feature is not working.
I retested the switch box for continuity again.
-All leads work OPEN as they should until you action LOCK or UNLOCK, then continuity shows a CLOSED circuit according to the side being pressed without a problem.
Just for giggles and laughs I stuck the test leads to test for continuity in the wires themselves and got a funny result. Stay with me here while I explain it as it happened.
Green = LOCK
White + Purple = NEUTRAL/GROUND
Purple = UNLOCK
-Between LOCK and NEUTRAL/GROUND, no continuity.
-Between LOCK and UNLOCK, no continuity.
-Between UNLOCK and NEUTRAL/GROUND, continuity is permanent.
I'm thinking somewhere in the system there is a stuck solenoid or short but the problem is the only solenoids I know is number 43 in the under-dash panel, and the other solenoid is in the door actuator, which if it WAS BAD, it wouldn't work with the Passenger Side LOCK button; right? Any other educated guesses here? Crossed wire? Generic Electronic Module short? Or am I missing something. Any other solenoid I'm forgetting to count? Grrr! :head_shot:
(As of right now, I'm replacing number 43 and will keep you all posted with the result.)
