2000 Chevy electric door locks

I have a 2000 Chevy 2500HD Crew Cab pickup. My electric door locks are not working very well, if at all. When I activate the locks one rear door lock engages and the others move just a little. The relays are engaging and I am getting 12 volts to the door solonoids. Could the selonoids themselves be getting week?
Any suggestions are more than welcome.

I doubt that it would be the solenoids unless this problem has been occuring for a long time and slowly one by one quit working until you just have one functioning now.
you need to get a wiring diagram for the door lock circuit and start testing, switches, relays, and wiring, you need more than power for them to function you need a good ground also.

I didnt think of checking the grounds. The locks have stopped functioning one at a time. I will check the grounds first.

Thank You
