I have fixed them.I also think i know why they both siezed up.A couple of weeks ago one of the locks acted up, so sprayed them with WD40 (BIG MISTAKE)which helped for a few days,then they both siezed up.I think the WD40 had washed the little grease in the lock away.I managed to open the doors by taking off the interior panel and putting a stiff wire ,bent slightly at the end into the back of the lock and turned it a few times,which did the trick.Then i shoved GREASE into the lock and worked the lock and solenoid until it worked freely.Thanks for the help.
