    2016 VNL. Rt door locks with key or inside handle, but will not lock or unlock with remote or left handle (I know, push it twice) . I installed a new actuator, it has a soft click when trying to lock or unlock, same as the old one. Left one has a hard clunk when it works. Everything works easily, and is lubed, wiring does not appear damaged in door. Is there a solenoid or switch somewhere else?

    OK, a lot of views but no answers. I opened up the drivers side door and everything looks good. I hooked up the lock actuator I took out of the passenger side and it made no difference. My brother works with electronics and he suggested looking for a relay. I searched the 'net and found something about a "central door lock module". It is located under the fuse panel. Now to try to find the part# and cost of one of them.

    Success! The door lock module fixed my problem, mostly. The remote now doesn't work for either door, but I can live with that. The doors lock and unlock with the key and the switches on the door.
    I got it used for $60 from ebay seller Arizona truck parts.

    Toss door.

    Put a old style manual door on there.

    The minute you are on top of old Raton in a -30 white out trying to fix a strap or something and that battery tanks and click. That's your life at risk.

    Why? The key locks work as they should. It is just a convenience to be able to operate the far side door from the driver's seat.
