What is this electrical connector on my passenger door?

Hey all - swapping out my window switch and door lock actuator. Remove door panel and see this little white connector. What is it and what is it for? See close up in second picture.

Bottom right, little white connector. Probably can best see it in the third picture.

1994 Mustang Gt but I am posting here for the overlap in body style. Power windows and locks.

It kinda looks like yours is in the middle but look inside and you should see this. Thats the white connector. If your power locks work you should have an actuator(the box my white connector is attached to).

Yes, the actuator is in the there ... the power locks are not working on the passenger side but the actuator is connected and makes a buzzing noise when the button is pressed. Hence the reason for swapping it out. I just can't figure out that little connector! If you have a chance to check, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hmmm ok now I'm confused. I have a black round motor thing attached to the actual lock rod, and when the button pressed I hear a noise, are there more than one motor/actuator things that are connected or just what you pictured above?

Does your Mustang have the little red lights on the door panel? The ones to make the door visible from the rear if they're open? They are usually in that area of the door?

If not, then I haven't a clue.

No little red lights. Perplexing problem isn't it? I believe I need a new actuator as the driver side works great and passenger side just seems to "spin" making a noise and not catching. So I will order a new actuator. If the doors work and window works, I'm not terribly concerned about it.

Does anyone have keyless entry? That was my only other thought, some tie in for a remote clicker. I don't have it so I don't know

I had to replace mine too. It made a noise like it was unlocking but you could see the lock barely move. Like he wasnt strong enough to make it all the way.

Mine makes a noise similar to the convertible top but a bit more shrill. It's worth trying to grab a new actuator I think. Ill trace that wire when I'm in there again to see if I can sort it. Thanks for the help
