Post RR door locks and unlocks

Hello All,

I am new to this site and this is my first post, so bare with me please. I have a 2001 Mercedes ML430 black leather interior and black exterior. I recently got my ML430 for Mothers Day 2008, so it's my new baby. I went from a 99 Mercury Cougar to a 2004 Nissan Maxima to a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix to now a 2001 ML430. After always believing I could never afford a luxury vehicle like a Mercedes I finally have one and man does it feel good. But enough about me, I have a couple of minor concerns and questions.

My keys were accidently ran over one night when my husband dropped them in the street and did not notice it until my alarm sounded. After this I noticed that my remote control would go in and out so I would tap it sometimes and it would work, but after it finally going out I took it to the dealership to get the battery replaced, but still did not work. Around this time I also noticed that when i come to a stop the doors would unlock then lock but the back rear right door would do it twice then stop. When I would accelerate it would do it again, almost sounding like a machine gun. It only happens on this door, I can lock/unlock the doors from the middle console but not this door. The dealership (PLaza motors, St. Louis, Mo) had no name, price, labor cost, anything to give me an idea of what it would cost, since they had a new computer system, so after a hour of waiting on them to come up with an answer I left, leaving with 2 possible things, door contact switch or door lock actuator. Anyone know a price or model number? Can someone please help. Sorry if this has been asked before I am very new. Oh and by the way does anyone have a 3rd row seat for sale, black leather for a ML430.
