2009 VUE Green Line
Default Door lock/unlock actuators losing power

2009 Vue Hybrid, has been with me for a couple of years now.

A couple weeks ago it has started to loose power on door lock/unlock actuators, not that they don't work at all, it feels more more like if voltaje were dropping each time system is used, first time it gives you full cycle, second time it barely reached unlock position, thirds time you can see how the lock post try to move, but don't do anything.

No other electrical issues that I'm aware of...

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
Thanks!!!

Any diagrams laying around to follow, anyone!?

Understanding how the system works might help me a lot in pinpointing the possible malfunction...

Thanks!!

Other than members posting wiring diagrams or pdfs (if any have them), searching online may provide free diagrams. The alternatives are subscribing to Alldata.diy or Mitchell for online service manuals

This is the symptoms of failing door latches replace the failing latches. Sometimes several or all fail about the same time.
