Power door lock problems

My driver's side power door lock quit working today. It will only lock and unlock manually or with the key. It wont work with teh key fob remote or with the switch. THe passenger side still works though. Is this a common problem or is this going to be an expensive dealer fix?

Mines in the same boat, i took it to the dealer while still under warranty and they said nothing was wrong with it.. now im out of warranty and if i lock it with the fob and try to unlock it within an hour, it wont unlock. It got worse when it got warm out.

Take it to a dealer and whine anyway. They may just go ahead and fix it. If they don't, call the Mazda customer service 800 number in your owners manual and politely request that they cover the repair since your mileage is so close to the warranty mileage.

Mine just started doing this (or so I noticed) the other day. Passenger side. I took the panel off the door and found it to be the lock actuator. Has anybody here had to replace the actuator before.. Or know the best place/price to get a new one?

I know that the Honda civics 01-05 had many problems with the lock actuators and the gas tank lid actuator failing, but it doesn't seem to be a common RX-8 problem.

If anyone has any advice I'd appreciate it.

Adam

Yeah, the car is out of warranty. I went to the dealership here and they showed me the part on their order list and it's for the entire door setup.. actuator, lock, cables, switch...all of it. $149.76. OH, and I'm in Denton.

My 8 just clicked over 55,000 miles and started doing this today on the driver's side lock. It opens/locks with the key in the door just fine, but the electrical actuation just doesn't have the might to move it.

It was about 90 degrees out all day, not sure if temperature has something to do with it but I have seen that some people have suggested that.
