As I said, if you jump the outer wire in the door sender to the 
center wire, it will lock or unlock depending on which wire you
hit.  You could also disconnect the wiring at the pump and run a 
power lead to it, but you want to check the wiring as well.

Yes, that seems to be the problem on mine as well.  Some WD40 will
help clean it up I think.

Is there anyone who needs to know how to fix/lube the door handles
and locks on a 4kq?  My driver's rear door would not open from
the outside, so I took the handle and lock out, cleaned and lubed 
and they are good as new.  I can do a writeup if anyone needs
it but it's quite simple.
