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.
