    03 cts driver door lock problem

    Hey all new to the forum joined to ask a question

    got a 2003 cts sedan
    the driver door lock goes crazy when:

    the car is put into drive from park
    the car is put into park from drive or revers
    the button is pushed to lock or unlock driver door


    unlocking from the outside is tough with the key (key fob is broken so cant use it)

    what the lock does is whenever u put it in drive it goes up and down rapidly a few times before it finally stay down

    so its like up down up down up down and then stays down

    just trying to figure out if its the actuator or what the problem is that would be causing this.

    this only happens on the drivers door lock

    could well be the door actuator going bad or the control module which I believe is in the drivers door, worth checking for corrosion or dampness, can play havoc with electronics.

    its mostly screws to remove then everything just pulls off, i know this is for an 05 cts but it should be pretty similar stuff https://docs.google.com/open?id=0Bz8...GRDbC0yT0pENUE
