Commonly this fault is caused by either a faulty IVA solenoid or failed housing. If the problem continues after replacing the solenoids, the housing is faulty. Thoroughly inspect the wiring harness and connector pins as well. It's a pleasure to help anyway I can.

Morning Sr
The selenoides 3 and 4 was replaced twice and to make sure before spend money on a new housing my mechanic switch the housing with solenoid [email protected] with the housing of solenoid [email protected],so if the problem is housing or solenoid was moving to diferent position but the code was showing same position (actuator 3 is not responding)

I recommend re-flashing and updating the software by the dealer if you confirmed that all other possibilities are ruled out. It very well could be a software related glitch if the solenoid is not a parts warranty deffective solenoid.

Thanks for the update... Retrace your steps... Either you have faulty parts or maybe another electrical problem causing them to fail.
