By re-run calibration, do you mean you already did it?  it wouldn't hurt to try again.  Are you sure you have the right instructions for the calibration procedure?

I don't remember there being any special tricks to installing the modules.  I don't have one on hand, doesn't the output shaft have a half-moon design so it only goes on one way?  

Surely you couldn't have flipped the actuator door over?

Thanks! I think I just needed a nudge. I'm kinda sore from the initial install...

I will try recalibrating and before that checking this site for the calibration procedure. I had done it before, did it this time from memory and I'll bet I screwed it up. Last time I installed any driver side actuators was July 2013. The output shaft goes on one way, sort of, it's more or less oval with the long sides flat.

Thanks!

I ran calibration this morning and things are, well, great!

I must have been sleepy or fatigued when I did (ummm... when I screwed up)  the initial calibration right after installing those actuators.

Hi Steve (and the rest of you),

I did not remove the seat.  I put a small stool just outside the door opening, rested on that and the footwell.  Small of my back just cleared the door sill.

The calibration - With the car running I turned the HVAC to "OFF" and then shut down, disconnected the battery again, grounded the positive terminal for about a minute then went to make/eat dinner (left the terminal hanging).  After dinner (chicken) I reconnected battery, turned the car on (did not start it) and let it sit HVAC off  while listening for actuator action. It was hard to hear - the new actuators (aftermarket, not OE) are really quiet for some reason - and it took 3-4 minutes.     Then I turned car off, waited 30 seconds, started it, took a drive. Once the car was warm enough (temp gauge about 1/4 up) I tried the different settings -- no THUMP and everything seemed to work (winner, winner, chicken dinner).

I figure the first time I did something dumb like forgetting to turn the HVAC "OFF."
