I *think* you'll find that the "control unit" is a switch physically linked to the drivers' door lock - the turning of the key actuates the switch, which then sends the signal to the other solenoids in the car. > Can the unit be fixed at all or is this a replace-only item? Take off the door panel (remove screw in black plastic shell around door-open handle and undo the obvious retaining screws) and start there. It's a pretty simple electro-mechanical device, no computers involved ;) > Any other advice? Yes, change your smoke-detector batteries twice a year. But, on-topic advice might be that, given the age, it's not unusual to expect that things are just a bit gummed up. First, see if the switch on the driver's side is working right, then go around the car to the actuators & see if they move right. Mechanical first, then if it's stil not a happy thing, go for electrical. Dave Hinz
