M Crowell, the error F/dL can be caused by:

"A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it 6 times

before displaying the error.

Potential Causes

• Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door

• Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly

• Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and

Central Control Unit (CCU)

• Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure" from the manual.

check all those things out, and you may have to replace the mechanism. Hope this helps, good luck.
