Power door lock motors work but no lock!

Anyone heard of this? When I push the Lock/Unlock button, the motors run but don't do anything except for the back hatch. I'm thinking someone disconnected them but why all 4 doors and not the hatch? I know...sounds stupid but just curious. Also, does anyone know where to find replacement remotes for the car? It is a 1995 4.0 JGC Laredo? Thanks!

Each door has a solenoid (spelling?). It is probably burned out. When mine failed, they made a noise like they were working, but wouldn't lock. Try searching here, e-bay, or a local pick-n-pull. They can be expensive unless you find a used one. I have replaced two of mine so far with used ones and had no problems.

Good luck!
