Sergey S: My wife drive Pontiac Montana 2002. Some time ago the lock/unlock button stopped working on the driver's side. It works fine on the passenger side and with key remote. I thought it was the fault of the switch and even bought one, but after replacing it I realized that this was not the reason. What else can it be? Thanks.

1A Auto Parts: To my knowledge the door ajar light should be triggered by the door jamb switch. You could remove it and see if there's anything wrong with it. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
tanya bolton: hello, does it have a built in door ajar switch? we have a constant door ajar open on the dashboard but the dome light comes on and off as it should when you open and close the door.
1A Auto Parts: HI Juanita, You may want to check the door lock actuator on the door lock that's not working correctly. We carry new ones for many different vehicles on our website 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Juanita Aponte: I have a 2001 Chrysler Voyager. The lock will open but won't go down. It also makes a noise when we lock/unlock. All switches work just the pass side door I need to put down manually. What do you think it is?
1A Auto Parts: You may want to check the switches with a test light or an ohm meter to see if there's power going to and from them when pressed. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Sonus Ventorium: Ok i have a similar Question. I have a Chevy Venture 99' i'm having lock trouble. I can lock all the doors using the power lock button but CANNOT unlock the doors on either side of the vehicle. what do you think would cause this
1A Auto Parts: We do not have a video that shows this particular repair. You may want to check the fuses to see if they are good, and also test the power going to the door lock to see if there's power going to the actuator. If there is, the actuator may be bad. Hope this helps you out. Have a great day! 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
rcaridaho: I have 1997 Trans Sport. One sliding door on passenger side. It won't electronically lock or unlock. However it can be done manually. Do you have a video on this subject? Thank You
1A Auto Parts: You may want to look to see if there's a piece of frayed wire some where that may be coming into contact with some metal, which may be causing this.
Glennys Ramirez: We have a 2006 Uplander. Last year, the door locks fuse would keep blowing. We noticed that water was leaking back into the car under the carpet and pooling in the wire wells. We got the leak fixed and replaced the fuse and it was fine. The fuse has started to blow again. No leaks. How do we run down the reason for the fuse blowing? What is the easiest way to troubleshoot the problem? When I replace the fuse, I can hear the locks trying to work. Then the fuse blows.
1A Auto Parts: It could be. If you can hear it try to lock but it doesn't, then it might be a bad door lock actuator.
Sean H: i have a 2006 grand prix, driver side door lock will unlock but when i used to the switch to lock it, it won't lock. i have to lock it by hand. could this be a bad acuator?
1A Auto Parts: If there's power going to the door lock actuator it may be a bad door lock actuator. If there isn't power to the door lock actuator there may be a break in the wire between the door and body of the car on the passenger or drivers side.
Miguel Cunha: I have Chevrolet Equinox 2008, when I try to unlock or lock all doors, the passenger door does not work. It only works manually locking and unlocking that door. I tried switching fuses in the fuse box located in the glove compatment with an other fuse in the fuse box. Same problem. What else can I try?
1A Auto Parts: You're welcome. Have a great day! 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
iweld Alexander: THANX YOU GUYS ARE GREAT!
1A Auto Parts: The light comes on when the door opens and releases the door switch. it is normally a pin covered by a rubber cap that compresses when the door is closed and springs back then the door is opened. It is normally on the perimeter of the frame for the door on the vehicle.
1A Auto Parts: It it doesn't unlock with the door lock switch, you may want to test the wire going to the door lock motor to see if it has power going to it. If the actuator does have power going to it then it might be the actuator that has gone bad. Hope this helps you out.
