Default 99 ranger remote keyless entry problem

I have a 99 ranger and when i try to unlock the door using the fobs it does not unlock them. The more i press the button it seems like the less power it gets. any idea of where i can start to troubleshoot first would be great

possibly the door acuators have gone bad. My pass. side moves just a bit but does not lock or unlock . I took the door panel off and found bad acuator it was frozen so power was going there but just can not move the plunger.

might try taking the door panel off and chking the acuator it is a PITA tight fit
