Troubleshooting door locks from a distance is a very difficult task. I understand the door locks as well as anybody and strongly advise anyone taking similar actions to  remember to take LOTS of photographs.

there are very subtle differences between left-hand and right hand locks. I would advise owners to perform lock replacement actions on one side at a time, at least that way you will not inadvertently swap pieces to the wrong side.

If you share more of the process you performed we may be able to zero in on where are you made your apparent mistake.

Thanks for the comments.  I did do one side at a time and everything was working before the change.  The key is turning and the actuating rod from the tumbler is moving the attaching lever from the latch/lock mechanism up and down.  With the door closed I turn the key and here the actuator moving in both directions however neither direction will lock the door.  The push button for the lock on the drivers side is not moving at all,  passenger side it moves slightly but pops back up on it's own.  Still investigating.  Thoughts would be appreciated.
