Door locking problem

So I just bought myself a Xb and it seems the only problem so far has been with the locks on the doors.
My main problem is with my back passenger side door, it seems like it has child lock on it, but I fiddled with the child lock latch and had no changed result. Is it broken? the CL latch won't move. When you lock the door, you can hear it locking, but when you unlock it, there's no sound.

Also, sometimes when I hit the lock all doors button (I don't have an alarm) it locks all doors multiple times, sometimes 3 or 4 times it clicks. Is it just a weird malfunction? Am I worried about nothing?

    okay so I fiddled with the CL latch more, and fixed it.

    but I'm still concerned about the multiple locking when I hit the lock all doors button. Earlier I hit it and it continuously locked ATLEAST 10 times.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

1999 GMC suburban locks seize in locked postion

I just bought a 1999 Suburban and all of the door lock actuators were bad including the rear (barn style door) while I was replacing the rear door acuator I noticed that even with the factory mounting bracket on the actuator it was causing the door lock rod (the rod from the keyed cylinder lock to the actuator) was on a bind......the solution I came up with is adding an additional 3/4" spacer between the factory mount bracket and the door attach point. this solved any binding and the door lock works great now........also I used a lubricant on all the doors where the rods run through the plastic guides, which seemed to help quite a bit! Hope this help's.

Driver's side door lock not responding to keyless remote or to interior switch - 2004 Scion xB

I had that issue with my scion xb. When I installed my audio system somehow the vibrations loosened the button wires clip . I removed the door panel and clicked it back in, also it could be a dead solenoid or disconnected door wire that goes from the 'noid to the door lock pin.

2005 Cadillac STS door problem... Front driver door wont open from outside, seems as if the electronic system isnt responding to release latch when handle is pulled? Anyone have similar problem? All other...

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.

Door locks are faulty

it sounds like you got a short and since the short is after the main fuse try looking a the individual fuses for each door and then find a diagram and start tracking wire!
