90 legacy with door lock that sticks

Problem solved! It was a sticking electric door lock.

I searched and found the page on early legacy locks before I started this thread. That was clearly not the problem in this case and a few others were wrongly referred to that post when they had a problem similar to mine. It's definitely not the broken plastic hook for the spring in the lock remote. The electric lock selonoid jams and puts continual tension on the lock requiring you to push the rocker to counter the force while opening the door lever. The solution just required cycling the electric door locks until they finally worked. It helps to put pressure on the rocker while when cycling the door locks. That way it locks and unlocks every time.
I have this problem w/ a '91 Legacy on all the doors. They require holding the lock mechanism open w/ using the door handle. It also (seemingly) randomly locks the driver's door when it's closed. Is there a single solenoid/module/whatever causing this?
