while I'm waiting for a response, I pulled the panel off and manually opened the door. After it opened, I closed it and tried it again with the key fob, locked and unlocked again several times, and it seems to work fine now. Not sure why, but glad it seems to be fixed ? Now I'm on the right hand passenger side door, took off the panel, now I'm not sure what needs to be replaced, it seems like the actuator is behind the steel portion of the door. just below the window near the opening of the door. I can get to the door lock near the hinge side of the door. I think I'm stuck.
