Sorry ... sounds like you need to pull and test (be prepared to replace) the lock actuator.

Pull it and bench test, it may have just gone to far and is now stuck.

Best of luck.

+1 test that and make sure the console toggle bank is plugged all the way in.

Then again test the lock itself, I have seen them get wreak on the unlock but are easy to lock before they fail.

I forget the pins, but you can make a small jumper and just test from pin to pin. What I have seen is the little actuators just get weak over the years.

Thanks for the order. When I did mine back in the day I did both sides so one would not go bad then the other.

...Yea, I normally just order the new part, then if I can fix the old one I put it on the shelf, but sometimes as I am trying to fix the pulled part it doesn't make it past the "Percussive Maintenance".
