Thanks for the input everyone. As I stated earlier all actuators are working fine. The only problem with the door locks is that the switches (the ones inside on the arm rests, not the buttons on the exterior handles) on both front doors will not unlock the doors. Since all 5 actuators (4 doors and rear hatch) work as they should, it leads me to believe the problem is in the master switch. Master switch went bad in my Cadillac Allante, which caused the passenger side to not work as well. I'm assuming the FX is the same way.

Removing Power Door Lock Switch on Driver's Door

Does anyone know how the remove the master door lock/power window switch ? After watching a video on you tube, I'm under the impression it can simply be pried out from the top of the arm rest, and I do not need to pull off the door panel.
The video I found on you tube was about 21 minutes long showing how to replace the actuator in the driver door. It was a continuous video with no cut away. The guy in the video started with a completely assembled door, took it apart and replaced the actuator and had it all back together in about 21 minutes. Like I said, there were no cut aways in the video, the video appeared to a continuous feed, all real time from start to finish. After watching the video I can tell you one thing for sure, this job on the FX is definitely easier and quicker than on a Cadillac Allante.

Everything works again

Thanks again to all that have replied. Lo and behold, all my door lock functions on the master switch work correctly now. Here's what happened. I was searching for info and found another video of how to program automatic door locks. By the way, does an '08 FX35 have automatic door locks, meaning like when I get up to a certain speed, all the doors lock automatically ? Mine does not do that. My previous Jeep did and I miss that function big time. O.K. so after watching the video I went out and went through the process of programming the "auto lock" feature which appeared to do nothing, but all of a sudden both door lock switches are working fine now. I', happy, but would be a lot happier if I had auto door locks.

No auto door locks. I got a module that did it for me, and then took that module out when I installed a remote start with alarm package, and it has an option to lock the doors when you start the ignition and unlock them when the ignition is off, so that's what I use now...
