Okay, I must tell you all that I did it! The driver's side door took
me about 1.5 hrs, the passenger door about 25 min. Once I
figured out the first one, the second one was a breeze. Anyway,
I ended up getting my parts through Advance Auto Parts, took
only a few days. They were mopar parts, so I guess that's
good....isn't it?? I just had to share my good news with you all
and thank you for all your help. I'm a 35 year old female and my
husband discouraged me not to try this, but like I said the other
day, I was a woman empowered and had to show him that I in
fact could do this and save us $200, I did and am so proud of
myself! Okay, enough boasting, I have only one last question...
Everything works fine, but when you open the door from the
outside, it's not as "smooth" as the doors I didn't replace. It kind
of "pops" open. There is a visible screw, which I'm assuming is
some sort of adjustment thing, I had to use an allen wrench,
when I tightened it, it would work, and when I loosened it, it
wouldn't. The hole is below the three mounting screws for the
unit. Is this in fact what I should be adjusting, or is there
something somewhere else that would alleviate the "popping"
open. Any help, once again, would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks! Shel

The adjustment is the plastic piece that attaches the handle bar to the latch itself on the inside of the door. you twist it up and down the bar to get the adjustment you want. I found this out the hard way.

I have had to replace all 4 door lock actuators once and the drivers door twice in 5 years. None were covered under warrantee. None were abused. Come on Dodge! Don't pull this Ford Ignition problem denial routine that made me swear off thier products forever! They finally acknowleged the problem, after a class action lawsuit, but my dealer and the shop that did the repairs were out of business or had conveniently had norecords in thier computers for the year that the repairs were made. I only have Chevrolette left for an "American" made product. Or are the making Toyota Trucks in the USA now....

After reading the last 43 replies about the lock
problems, I'm glad I ordered my 02 4X4 Sport
without all the JUNK!

No power windows, locks or alarm system.

My next one won't be a automatic either. Tired of
hard shifts OR wondering if it's gonna shift.

Only 30K on it! And yes, tranny has been serviced.
I'm not so sure a brand new one is even in my
future.. I may step WAY back to a OLD full size
Dodge.. You know, something that we all can work
on ourselves.

I also am having passenger door lock problems. It stated buzzing about a week ago, when you lock the doors. I have 26,000 miles on my 2000 dodge dakota slt, also does not shift properly at times, take too long.. Have used dodge vehicles for over 30 years, I am somewhat dissapointed with my latest purchase.

i hope the dealer can fix this one... my 2000 slt dakota was making a buzzing sound on the driver side door. i didnt think anything of it at first. when i came out of school, i couldnt open up my driver's side door at all. i had to crawl through the passenger side door to get in and drive home. it was like the whole actuator just broke and froze in the lock position. is there any suggestions to a temporary fix?
