Door lock

The usual problem here - doors won't unlock remotely.

Happened on both doors, and finally got fed up with it.

So today I have fitted a new door lock/actuator unit into the pass door - locks fine, but doesn't unlock most of the time. Can't work out why. Worked fine for about 10 tests, then I tried the toggle button in the middle of the car and then the door wouldn't unlock or open.

And ever since it won't unlock/open, without sticking my hand into the door and moving the lever (which the exterior handle cable goes through). So it's now worse than it was before (you could at least lean over and pull the handle to open the door).

Any ideas?

On another thread, it was suggested you reset the computer by disconnecting battery. Cable and reconnecting
