Power Lock Issues

Alright guys so finally the weather is clearing up here in north bay! I was able to go outside and actually open my door panel to see what was wrong with my powerlocks, Unfortunately it is way to damn confusing, no clue whats going wrong.. I opened the door panel on the passenger side and the actuator is litteraly almost impossible to lift up. I got to the box, and removed the fuse, it seemed to be intact, but accidentaly broke it myself, so I touched the two wires together withought the fuse, to see if it was the fuse, woo locks opened then closed, but then after they dont work, it will attempt to go up but still stays stuck, so I remove the power, and put it back on, boom it pops up, then stops working but still tries to. Really no clue what is wrong, checked my connections, and everything else, the only thing I can think of is:

The relay box is not working properly
or
Since I tapped out of ciggaret lighter, it is somehow not getting enough power lol doubtfull

I think its the relay box, that is allowing constant power to my passenger side door, as its really hot, and can never pull it up manually to unlock it

Check your ground connections. They might have rusted over the winter, you're in Canada you know. We have that salt cancer. You are obviously not getting the full voltage to your solenoids. A meter with a needle in this case is of better help because you can visually see what is happening to the voltage when you press the button, where a digital meter will just flicker a bunch of numbers. You should get close to battery voltage on those solenoids when energized.

Finally found my meter in the garage and on a nice sunny day to, constant power is going to the actuator so I am almost 90% sure its the relay box that is broken.
