1998 Astro

I just replaced both front lock actuators. Yay....power locks now work! Buuuuttt.......when I press the door lock button down (lock) the front doors unlock and the rear and slider lock. It's the opposite when I unlock the front doors.

I feel this is a sinmple fix, but I just can't figure it out. Hellllp!

Sounds like the new actuators were wired backwards? But is that even possible, I think they only go one way. Maybe if aftermarket they are wired internally backwards. Flipping the wires on them will make them go the other way. Did something else happen previously to the front lock wiring?

FYI I just encountered this problem. The chinese door lock actuators I picked up are definitely wired backwards, lol. So dumb.

Wow, just did the other door and the brand new actuator doesn't even work. Lmao. That's what I get for buying the cheapest chinese ones.
