Door lock button snafu repaired
First of all I want to thank you all for the input provided to reslove the problem I was having with the door lock button.
I removed the vacuum actuator (solenold) from the right rear door and replaced it with one that I got from pick & pull. All is well now with the replacement.
My concern is the vacuum/supply pump. It takes about one minute for it to shut off after I lock the doors either from within or utilizing the key. The sound is most noticeable (loudest) behind the fuel fill door. Is this normal? I'm concern that the battery will quickly drain after repeated use of the central locking system.
As I look through the Hayes manual I think the culprit is either the vacuum/suppy pump or the fuel tank flap actuating element. What do you guys think?
Possible solutions/advice as always is greatly appreciated.
