problem #1

Door lock malfunction - while driving, I heard something come from the left/driver side...it sounded like a box or something fell from my rear seat, onto the floor and under my seat. I sat in the car, unlocking/locking, and it continued to go nuts...even the central locking button on the dash failed to work a few times... looks like a door lock actuator problem that costs about $400 to fix.
