Sounds like you've hit the corroded wires issue...
It'll definitely be the wires you're talking about.
You'll need to trace them to the door lock mech, and probably replace them.
Chances are the corrosion will have spread to whatever they're connected to too, so i'd give it a full once over.
vortex has a bunch of threads devoted to this, for example:
