    I have a 2001 excursion that the back door won't even lock with the key. Truck needs new power locks all the way around but i'm baffled as to why i can't lock the rear door.

    Door locks

    Yea the lock actuators are cheaply designed and don't last very long, as far as your question is it a passenger door or the rear split gate doors that won't unlock?

    I'm starting to wonder if it was broke into like they break into other doors and break up all the plastic parts. Guess i'm gonna have to take it all apart.
