What do you mean by manually? With the single lock by the lever or the lock all rocker switch. I mean it sounds right, if I recall correctly itís to keep you from locking your keys in the car. I can go out and check in a bit.

My bad. I had the battery engaged to roll window down/up. You are correct. It stops you from locking keys in car. The install overall went great. Iím doing drivers side later today once motor gets delivered.

Thanks very much for the writeup and discussion. I think this repair job is in my future, but a few questions and comments first to make sure I'm on the right track (and I'll accept sarcastic responses as well.)

The issue I'm having with my passenger front door (LE) is sometimes it won't unlock with the handle or fob and double beeps, or sometimes it will beep but not lock. This is intermittent although when it stops working it does so for a few days. I've got an extended warranty so I know I can have the dealer look at this (a) if I can get it to repeat the symptom when I show up and (b) if I want to talk to them.

So, (1) are my symptoms consistent with the door lock actuator/motor replacement or do I need to look at other problems to diagnose as well?

(2) should I buy extra motors for the impending failure of other doors or since I've only had issues on one door should I assume the others are fine?

(3) for anyone who was a teen in the 90s, these motors remind me of Record Breakers cars.
Thanks again for the write up. I had my front passenger replaced under warranty, but I did my driver front this weekend. When I opened the actuator housing, two pieces fell out but by carefully looking at the pictures above and taking my time, I got these back into place. When I did get it all installed, I had an issue with the automatic door lock--if I pressed lock it would quickly cycle a few times then put it back to unlock. (sounded like a paintball marker). I think I got the order of the wires wrong (tried to send the signal before I plugged the actuator back in) and maybe one of the metal cables was not properly secured. So I removed the actuator housing and checked the function again, I might have also had one of the positions incorrect (the one that's hard to see in the picture) and reassembled and manually on the cables until I was comfortable with the locking and unlocking. (also made sure to power off the car, which can be confusing with an LE.)

Got it all reassembled and it works, the door handle rod was not an issue at all, thanks probably to mistakes made previously by others which are well documented. it's nice to be able to lock my car again using the handle touch and not get a series of annoying beeps because my driver lock did not turn (and it's a long reach for me from the passenger side to unlock).

my only issue now is that if i hit the door lock button with the driver door open it unlocks all doors, not sure if this is how it should be or if that is a preference I can change, but it works.

Oh, also I couldn't get all of the plastic tabs back in, I am going to buy a handful from the dealer and try that again. Driver rear will be next, when it finally breaks.
