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?

the gear is stripped in the lock transmission the electronic lock needs to be replaced. you might be able to find the removal by googling the year and make of the car and door lock removal, if that doesn't work go to www.alldatadiy.com they will have detailed instructions for any repair you might make. costs a little money but by far the best repair manual out there.
Tap the doors with a rubber hammer at the lock area firmly.DO NOT DENT THE DOORS.Manually try to lock and unlock the door while tapping it,once unlocked, open the door,remove the trim panel on the door and lube the lock assembly with a correct lubricant suitable for your vehicle.Try the locks a few times before reinstalling the trim panels.DO NOT USE WD40.
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.
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.
