You can test the relay. When you actuate the lock side the green wire should go to 12v+ for about 0.8 seconds.
When you actuate the unlock, the blue should do the same.
Both sit on ground or 0v (NOT hull!) at rest.
Battery probably co-incidental. If the relay were constantly powering up it would train the battery (say 7.5 amps per motor and 63AH) in about 1.5 hours with 4 power locks, 3 with 2 power locks but as I said you're more likely to burn out the motors.
Mechanically the trick is to mount the actuators so the locks move smoothly with no sticking.

ahh alright, i see. i guess it was coincidental since i had the locks plugged in for about 2-3 days before the battery died. also the sticking seems like it could have been the problem since the back door actuators were hard to mount so they might be sticking. i will check everything out, thanks so much for all the help guys!
