Door Locks Weirdness

So I'm trying to get the door locks working properly on this car. I've googled a bit and I see several different ideas and was hoping if I share what's going on someone might help me narrow down the options. Basically when I got the car the armrest buttons did not work, but the car would lock/unlock when I put it in drive/park, respectively. I pulled out the door switches and clearly the contacts had worn out so I ordered new switches. Previously, they did nothing. Now they sort of weakly try to unlock or lock, but never actually do anything. If I press repeatedly it gets weaker and weaker until all I hear is a clicking from under the center console, I think in the area where the fuses are. I pulled the fuses and they look OK. Even tried swapping another fuse into that spot and got the same effect. Any thoughts? Thanks. I'll be happy to provide more info if needed.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I pulled the blue and gray connectors from the BCM and everything looks pristine.
