Need some help. My passenger door actuator stop working. I had a 2 wire universal one laying around. Does anyone know which wires I tap into so the universal actuator will work like oem. I already mounted the new one just need the correct wires to tap

Thanks!

Buy a new one for 10-25$ and have it working the way its meant to.
You can find new ones anywhere from eBay to rockauto.com

Nevertheless the door lock plug has only 2 wires going to it. If you're looking at the plug facing you with the clip side on top you've got [1][2].
Lock is + - and unlock is - +.

Noooooo dont buy some random ones off ebay.. I tried and went through like 4 actuators and opening up the door that many times Sucks... I finally just went to the yard and got a few used oem ones and they did the trick. The aftermarket actuators are super cheap and do not work very long at all. Mine only lasted 2 weeks before I had to replace it. Go with oem

New oem actuators are about $40 front and $25 rear on Amazon. I've had to replace 3 of the 4 original actuators in my car. The new ones seem to be decent, as one is 9 months old and still going.
