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.
Mark Saturnino: i have chevy venture 2001. during winter my door does not lock if i use my
remote but if i use the door lock manually it work and during summer time
it work too..any idea what cause the problem...thank and godbles
1A Auto Parts: @dariuswalton1 I would check with a test light to make sure there's power
coming from that switch and also check the wire harness between the body
and door of the car.There may be a broken or frayed wire in there.
1A Auto Parts: @dkhill27 2000 Grand Am does use the same actuator so the process is
similar. I do have a video on removing the door panel for the 2 door grand
am, that is probably the most different part of the procedure. Search for
"door panel Grand Am"
dkhill27: Will this also work for a 2000 grand am GT? My actuator has gone out and
wont unlock with keyfob or power lock button. Pass side works tho. So i
Assume its my driver actuator Its a 2 door. Any help is appreciated. Nice
detailed video Have been looking all over the net for a video GOOD JOB!!.
Approx how long will it take like say i took it to the shop.

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
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.
Rakesh Sachdeva: Thanks for the video helped me locate the actuator. Haynes manual was
pretty useless for that. Silly question. You slid the window up and and
held it with masking tape, what if you just have the window up before you
start the job, is it restricting anything? I assume the power window wasn't
working in the Van that you did the video on..
gozdzilla: My 2000 Pontiac Montana power sliding door is stuck in the locked closed
position Any ideas to bypass or troubleshoot ??? Thanx for any help Bob
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
1A Auto Parts: The video shows you how to remove the window form the window regulator so
that it's not in your way while you're trying to remove the door lock
actuator on your van.
mrexecutive1: Some what painstaking, great clip, thanks.
1A Auto Parts: @gozdzilla You may want to take the door panel off and see if anything came
undone on the latching mechanism.
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?
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: @vulondra You may want to check the wire that goes to the door motor to see
if the motor in the door has current going to it. Hope this helps you out.
xdevilboy1987x: dude your right the tip on the actuator was broke thanks man
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.
vulondra: I have a 99 pontiac Montana and the power sliding door has never worked
since I bought it. I replaced the motor and it still don't work. When the
door is closed and I push the open button, it makes an unlocking sound but
it doesn't move. When the door is open and I push the button it just makes
a click. I tried the rest option the manual suggests and nothing. Do you
know what else it could be? You can email me @ email@example.com Thanks
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.
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
Max Cossette: Do you have any videos on installing power locking doors that would work on
a 1992 Chevy Blazer? If so could you please reply with the link? Also
wondering if you sell the kit for it?
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: It could be. If you can hear it try to lock but it doesn't, then it might
be a bad door lock actuator.
1A Auto Parts: You may want to test the wire going to the door lock actuator to see if
they have power to them. If they do, the door lock actuator may be bad.
dariuswalton1: i have a 2006 chevy impala and my doors locks stop working. Im wondering
what the problem is? When i hit the lock button on the door panel i hear
feedback from the 5way door lock relay its a ticking sound. also want nun
of the door locks come up unless i pull them up by hand. does it take 1 new
door lock actuator to make all 4 doors work again!....

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
Katie Leavell: 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
iweld Alexander: THANX YOU GUYS ARE GREAT!
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!
arizona67100: I own a 2005 Toyota Highlander. I need to fix the driver side power lock.
It would not lock or unlock with the keyless control. PLEASE HELP!!
1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have a video that shows this type install. We'll keep
this in mind in the event that we do something like this in the future.
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
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.
