Question about 1988 Cadillac Sedan DeVille

1 Answer

Jam door locks

Both the driver & passenger front doors are closed and locked, but when you press the "unlock" button on the driver's side both doors will not open. I tried to get the door panels off but it's impossible with both doors closed shut, im thinking some kind of lever came loose on the inside but i can't get to it. Do you have any ideas on how to go about doing this & what may have caused this problem in the first place?

How about the passenger side - does it unlock with the key and switch there? Can you open the drivers door with a key? If both these are true, probably the unlock switch on the drivers door is faulty.

SOURCE: The driver side door lock locks but will not unlock!

it is the keyless entry module! that is the only thing in line with the drivers door lock. the rest of the locks are all connected to a door lock relay. so that only leaves a broken wire or module. go to the module( located in the trunk on the back of the back seat first module in the group of three) and test the tan wire in connector "c" position 18 while activating the lock either from remote or one of the switches and see if you get a positive pulse when doing so. if yes then you have a broken wire from that point to the door lock motor/actuator. if you don't have a positive pulse then the module is bad.

if you have any more question please ask. good luck

You most likely have a central locking system that will stay locked until you can unhook the battery. This is sounds like a similar problem I had with my 95 BMW.

Why wont windows and lock work? could it be the front ecu?


Check inside of door where wiring comes thru for broken wires ,ECU doesn't control windows or door locks. You didn't state what model vehicle you own. But opening and closing door on drivers side causes broken wires on numerous vehicles over the years, most makes and models. Split boot and check all wires inside for breakage.

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

I hve a 2007 nissan altma and the front passenger door wont open. I replaced the locking assembly, and as soon as i closed the door it locked again. When I press the unlock button it moves but nothing...


sounds like the actuator in the door that locks and unlocks the door is jammed or too weak to move the lock assembly to fully lock/unlock positions. the linkage may be in a bind that can cause the same problem.

Automatic passenger door lock


You should replace power door lock at front passenger side, you can use any 'universal' power door lock. its an unit with a small motor inside that have a mechanism to up and down according electricity from the actuator (master door lock at driver side)
Hope this help :-)

Jeep grand cherokee central locking system


If all the doors do not lock or unlock when using the passenger side switch, then the switch itself is probably bad.   If the passenger side switch locks or unlocks all the other doors except for its own, then the power lock solenoid inside the door is bad or jammed.  If it is jammed, try locking and unlocking the door manually while activating the switch to work its way free.
