Q: Electronic door locks not working.

asked by on

The electronic door locks on the sliding door don't work. The locking mechanism still operates manually.

The power door lock actuator is most likely to blame. A trained professional, such as one from YourMechanic, will be able to confirm this and repair your Mazda.
