Power Door Locks Stop Working on Chevrolet Astro

The power door locks may stop working in one or more doors due to a failed actuator. Replacement of the failed actuator should correct this concern.

Automatic door locks stop working. Have to use key on all 3 doors. Can get the front passenger door to lock/unlock with the key fob but it doesn't work on the other doors. Back door latch will not work with key or fob.

In my 1985 van the sliding side door is where my power lock would fail to unlock occasionally. Solution has been to manually unlock it from inside and then attempt to open.
