Manual unlocking no longer works after actuator replacement

Just as the title says. I replaced both front actuators and the drivers door will not unlock manually any longer. Is there something I missed?

Why did you replace them in the first place? Describe the process you used, such as first checking the fuse, then checking each actuator with either a new fuse or a direct connection, etc.

I replaced them because they weren't working lol. The passengers front went out a few months back, fuse ok, everything ok, not unlocking automatically. Then the drivers went out and I knew it was time to replace. The only difference between the drivers and passengers is that the drivers got stock in the locked position and was making funny noises, the passenger just didn't work. Replaced the passenger side, everything ok. Replaced the drivers side, everything ok except the manual unlock.
