Central Locking inop.. can I do this?

My double locking isn't working, by driver door or FOB.. Single locking works fine from the inside.
Question: I'm doing some work behind the glove box and I see the connections to the GM5, could I test the micro switch in the drivers door lock at two of the connections into the GM5? If so, what color wires would it be? And if your really good, which connector would it be?

I would rather do this first then to pull the door apart to check the switch. I heard their may be a fuse in the trunk that I should check, I haven't done this yet but will. The fuses in the glove box check out good.

Microswitches? In the drivers door? What microswitches? There aren't any microswitches in the drivers door. What are you talking about?
