Re: Power door lock problem

You might try Summit Racing (www.summitracing.com) and see if a generic 
power window conversion kit will work for your car.  Approx $150 US.  They 
have one that is actually designed to be hidden inside the door panel, not a 
bulky box that sits where the window crank is.

Mine came with PW so I haven't tried this, but I have ordered other parts 
from them and have been very satisfied.

BTW, go to the web site for the 800# and call them if you are interested. 
Their online parts DB is a PITA.
