Default Power door lock problems

My 99 ford ranger has power locks and when you hit the button to lock them they make a faint noise like theyre trying to lock but they dont lock. it kinda acts like it doesnt have enough power to lock. any idea what could cause this?

Mine did something similar, but would come up sometimes, and not others. So I opened it up and saw the window was getting in the way, so I moved them back up and cleaned the area a bit and they work good now. Might as well check it if they are still getting power.
