Probably need a greasing. I used WD40 on mine cause the locking motor wasnt powerful enough.

I also replaced the locks with the jaycar system because they were alot quicker.
Check out the doco thats on it.

Unless you have some sort of cabe system running to all of your doors (sorry just had to say it lol) then yes you have a locking motor in each door. If all of your locks started playing up at the same time you probably are suffering low voltage due to a bad contact somewhere.
