I installed a set of actuators I just bought used. My Fiero was flooded so the old set was rusted. I also took apart the relay and it looks good. I cleaned the contacts and re-soldered the end.. After completely installing both sides they will both only lock the doors. When I try to use the unlock button I only get a clicking from the relay. What do I do next? Second Issue I also I repaired the inside switch on the door lock. after completely taking apart the door lock to get at it. (Not fun). Seems it is activated when the door is open or closed via the lock plate which comes down on the switch. The switch works (checked it on a meter) but not sure what this switch is for. Is it for the locks or for lights? It is a separate wire set that goes into the door and then through the front jamb.

use a meter and check what you are getting at the actuator, the polarity will be backwards from lock.. make sure you are getting power and ground..
