Add another instance of this to the party. I changed the 15A fuse with a 20A but nothing changed...

Then I thought to myself that the central locking system was probably thrown out of sync when the issue happened, so I tried to 'reset' the system. First I unlocked everything (doors manually, trunk and gas lid). I then closed the trunk and gas cap, manually locked all the doors, got in the car, put the key in the ignition and pushed the start button to turn the electronics on (did not start the car). I then pushed the lock button on the dash a couple of times, and bingo! The locks started cycling normally.

I'm not sure this will be a long term fix (ie, might well be the actuators), but this might be helpful info for those who change the fuse and dont see an immediate improvement.
