I had F/DL come up.  I was not hearing the solenoid kick out.  This should have told me there was a wiring or logic fault.  Instead,  I probed the lock hole with a screwdriver (primary redneck repair method), and tripped the lock to the locked position.  It would not unlock.  The release pull did nothing.  So, off with the top cover and out with the switch/lock assembly.  I carefully popped it apart (all the internal components nest in one half of the assembly) and slid the white lock switch plate over, then pressed the part with the large spring down, causing the lock to rotate back to its unlocked position.  Reassemble the part, reinstall.  
While inside, make sure all wires and plugs are firmly attached.
