Ooops.

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:

Sounds more like corrosion. Take the door card off and inspect further.

inspected further was actually the window mrch :( one of the pins had corroded off into the plug so upon impact etc like slamming door or hitting a pot hole was breaking connection so swapped it out and loom from other vrs breaker i have too :) all works again now
