On the 99 JGC if you get in the rear seat on the drivers side with the tail gate closed you will see a 2 inch by 2 inch pullout on the should have a notch to pull off the cover at the bottom. You can then rotate the lock manually by pushing the knob up or down to lock or unlock.

Door locks not operation correctly


there is a motor placed inside the doors for the operation of the central lockin system. when you open the door by key this motos is activated and all door locks are released. your problem may because of this motor is failed.

cause of the failure
1.the wire going to the motor may be chopped off.
2.the junction box connecting the wires may be damaged.
3.fuse may be blown out.
4.motor itsef damaged.

so please check weather power is coming to the motor using multi meter. if the power is not coming to it then the problem is with the wires. if the power is coming to it then problem is with the motor.

please vote me if my answer was useful to you.

Happend to mine - lockin solenoid on one of the doors is dud. OR loose.

You will have to remove door card and remove solenoid and replace. - remove the wire from each door in turn to see which one it is.

My back passenger door makes loud squealing and does not lock

This is a very common problem with Jeep products. A lot of water gets onto the lock solenoid in the doors and one of two things happens, they either break off from their bracket or just stop working, the latter is easily fixed with a new lock solenoid, the for mer we dont need say anymore.......

Can not lock car with keys or manual. please help,car is open park on street.

I had that problem. My doors would not lock because my boot would not latch shut. I had a damaged wire that runs along the left upper opening of the boot. Wire ordered and replaced by my local mechanic for only about $88.00 (you most likely have a door or boot that is not closed).
