If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

Battery is fine tested with voltmeter under load T.O.K.Could the actuator be faulty it seems that other Jeep owners have had faulty actuators,is the actuator inside the drivers door?Thank you Michiganmaverick for your reply.

Let me try to understand what you are trying to say. You can lock the doors with the switch, which one, the one on each door or the master switch on the drivers door?

When you say you can't lock them with the key do you mean the button on the key fob?

Most problems with the locking system and windows can be traced to the wire harness running between the door and the body, inside the rubber boot, the wires have a habit of breaking.
