Question about 2001 Cadillac Sts

2 Answers

Door locks I have a 2001 cadillac sts. The doors unlock when you put the car in park. My husband when in the passenger seat seems to have a problem with waiting and tried opening hte door before I went to park. Now the lock is "stuck". We cannot get it to release. Can anyone help me. I am really bummed about this and do not have the funds to get it fixed. It seems there has to be a simple solution, but I found nothing in the manual. Thanks for any help and guidance.

    Hi tjcole, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Specifically, how many door locks are stuck, and what happens when you try to unlock from the driver switches and/or the other door switches?

You can try holding down the lock button and hit your remote button to lock doors and then try to unlock with the remote. If it resets then try it with the automatic actuators. Don't hold the door lock down and try to open it with the remote.

2003 Cadillac STS door and truck lock quit working


I checked all the fuses and relays and all are in good shape???????
Did you check the correct one's ,that's the question ? And did you use a voltmeter or test light to check across the correct fuse's ? And how did you check the relay's ????? Videos on youtube on how to test a relay ! And using a wiring diagram or power flow diagram that shows all componets of the none working systems ., Plus you need to know how the thing's work . Data communication network is involved in the working of these thing's , Data messages from module to module !

The body control system consists of the following 3 modules:
• The Dash Integration Module (DIM)
• The Instrument Panel Module (IPM)
• The Rear Integration Module (RIM)
Rear Integration Module (RIM)
The various RIM inputs and outputs are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the RIM electrical schematics.
The RIM functions include the following:
• Automatic level control
• CIGAR relay control
• Class 2 communication requiring RIM interaction
• Content theft deterrent
• Fuel door control
• Fuel level sensor input
• Heated seat control
• HVAC blower control
• LK/CYL relay control
• Park brake relay control
• Rear defog relay control
• Rear park assist chime control
• Retained accessory power (RAP) relay control
• Reverse relay control
• Transmission shift inhibit
• Trunk release relay control
• Various controls for the interior lamps

Just looking at fuse's and relay's isn't enough ! Hooking up a factory scan tool an checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes in all the vehicle control modules is always the first step . Which fuse boxes did you check ? Do you know there is a fuse box under the back seat ?
Fuse Block - Rear
Left rear of the passenger compartment, under the rear seat !
The vehicle is equipped with power door locks. Each lock actuator is powered and controlled by the door module mounted in the individual door, but the rear integration module (RIM), which is the master control for the door lock system, determines when the lock functions are permitted. The RIM receives and examines the requested lock function from the individual door modules, or from the remote function actuator (RFA) via the class 2 serial data circuit. The RIM also examines the transmission shift selector position and the ignition switch position information available over the Class 2 serial data circuits. If the RIM determines that a lock or unlock function is permitted, it sends a class 2 message back to the individual door modules commanding them to perform that Lock or Unlock function.
Your best bet , take it to the dealer !

Because the FOB is working the other two other things it can be are the fuses that control it, or the power lock control moduel. The fuses can be repaired easily, so I would attempt that first. The control moduel, however, I would take to a repair shop. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

I got locked INSIDE my 2001 Lexus LX470 today. I


This is the anti theft function working as it should. Your husband needed to override it with the key. The command told the car to lock down. Because the key was not in the car the anti theft set off the alarm and locked down the engine as well.
This is exactly what you would want the car to do if you left it locked on the street with your windows down while shopping. Otherwise someone could reach in the window, unlock the door, slide in and start hot wiring the car.
These lock functions are programmable and can be changed at the dealership.

There is NOT a mechanical connection to the outside door handles on the front doors. There is an electronic "door popping solenoid" This is a electronic problem. I think there was a recall on this.

sounds like that rear door lock will also not unlock with the switch either, correct ? It might lock , but not unlock. Door lock actuator needs to be replaced.
