Erratic Power Door Locks

05-18-2013, 09:18 PM
I have a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2L V8 extended cab. I locked my keys in the other day and called AAA who arrived promptly. He placed two wooden wedges between the glass and lower outside window seal on the passenger side door. Using a probe with a hook on the end his first pull missed it's intended mark but the second opened the passenger door. I've sense noticed that most attempts to lock or unlock the truck do not work for the driver side but always works for the passenger side. This is true with either the remote and each inside power door lock switch.

Is it possible that I need to retrain the power door locks or maybe he damaged something with the probe on the passenger side that affects the driver side?

Sometimes I have to hit the button more than once to get action.
I'm gonna blame mine on well used contacts and occasional rain from the window being cracked open.:redface:
