Okay, so I replaced the door jam switch, the actuator, the latch itself, and the relay. still the problem persisted. So, I spent the money and took it to the dealership. Within an hour the problem was solved. A broken wire where the boot connects between the door and the car! I was told this is a common problem. Easy fix. It cost me $90.00 to have the wire spliced! oh well. The problem is fixed.
