SOURCE: Electronic locks/ stuck door

DON'T LET THEM BREAK YOUR DOOR PANEL!!!!!

For those of you whose door is shut and you cannot open it, here is the trick that the Kia mechanic taught us: Insert the key into the door lock. In one quick motion, simultaneously turn the key to the unlock position AND pull the handle. It took us several attempts to finally get it to work.

Once the door is open, the check the diagnosis and repair instructions below.


*****

A couple months ago, our 2004 Kia Optima started exhibiting the same symptoms you describe: Door lock mechanism feels jammed, actuators automatically relock, etc.

We took the car to the local Kia dealership where we had purchased the car new, and the shop told us that it was a faulty door lock actuator. The mechanic did not open the door, but said that this was a common problem. They estimated $200 plus labor to repair.

This weekend, I decided to open the door and look for myself. What I found is that the actuator was fine. The fault was with the latch mechanism, called "door checker" in the Kia service manual. Not the lock... the latch; the actual part that latches onto the striker when the door is closed.

Here is my walk-through of the diagnosis and repair:

To determine the fault, I first removed the door panel. Remove 1 screw in the grab handle pocket, 1 behind the door open lever, and 2 screws at the forward edge, the bottom edge, and the rear edge. Remove the small window-corner speaker if equipped. Then lift off the door panel. Don't lift too far, there are wires to disconnect.

Once the door panel was removed, I removed the exterior door handle. Two bolts on the inside of the door secure it. Use 10mm socket to remove them. Then remove the connecting linkages by flipping the plastic catches on each to the side. This should allow you to pop the linkage from the socket. The heavy linkage is a little harder, as it has a locking groove. You may need a jewelers screwdriver or dental picks to open the plastic socket a little. Be very careful not to get forceful or you risk breaking the plastic catch. The actual lock mechanism turns 1/8 turn and slides out of the handle assembly. Set the handle aside.

Now disconnect the linkage from the actuator, again by flipping the plastic catch to one side and slipping the linkage from the socket.

Finally, disconnect the linkage that goes to the interior lock above the door-open handle.

With these linkages disconnected and the door handle out, remove the plastic cover on the latch mechanism. You should now be able to peer in and work the lock and opening levers independently and find the fault.

On my particular latch, the plastic bits (yes, they used plastic) had worn and become loose. This allowed the rotating part of the latch to rotate too far, which in turn caused a bind when you try to unlock the mechanism. The security system senses that the latch is not properly unlocked, causing the actuator to immediately engage and relock the doors.

If you confirm that this is your problem, then remove the three screws that hold the mechanism in place and replace the mechanism. I obtained mine from a salvage yard for $30.

Total time to diagnose and repair was about 3 hours - but you now will have an advantage in knowing what you're looking for!

there is a module on the drivers door latch that is more than likely to blame you will need to remove the door trim then remove the door latch disconnect the rods going to the latch then you will need the latch and the module that is attached after these are replaced the door locks should work fine

SOURCE: My drivers door locks with out reason. When I

seems to be a common problem on 03 kia's. most likely the latch mechanism is worn (they are mostly plastic and pretty cheaply made) and will need to be replaced. It happened to my kia and most mechanics directed me to the electric actuator, but all electircs were ok. drivers door latch went bad about 45k and front passenger door latch went bad about 65k.

The door locks on my 2003 Kia Sorento will randomly cycle and lock, often (but not always) just after I've unlocked the car with the key fob. This can happen multiple times before it finally settles down....


The locks are set to a "transmitter" signal under the hood. This can be disturbed if another closely tuned signal is also attempting to come one. My Kia remote repeatedly died because of my child's back seat DVR. Have the Kia Dealership set the remotes to a different signal. That will solve it.

My 2003 back right door lock will not lock/unlock. Now the right front sometimes will not unlock either. How do I fix this


Sounds like your door lock actuators are getting weak and dying. I have seen this happen on a lot of older 90's Hondas. You will have to get them individually tested and/or replaced if necessary, to get your power door locks working again.

Central locking wont stay open


Here's what I suspect is happening. The door locks will lock and unlock normally when the key is OUT of the ignition. If the key is IN the ignition, the doors cannot be locked (manually, key fob, or otherwise, if the system is operating as designed - prevents the doors being locked when the key is in the ignition). I've seen this problem before, but on a Santa Fe, not an Accent. The ground signal of the right hand front passenger door was lost, and the doors automatically locked. Perhaps something similar is happening in the circuit between the ETACS module and the right front passenger door lock/unlock actuator. Could be anywhere in the circuit.



d05b136.gif
ab4c712.gif These wiring diagrams may be helpful. The relays expecially may help solve this issue. As you can see, these relays are also controled by the ETACS module (Remote Keyless Entry).

The driver side door will not lock - the other doors lock and unlock using the electronic key, but the driver side door will not ock either electronically or using the key.


the lock mechanism itself of the driver side door is the problem.

you may try lubricating the lock mechanism and you might un-tangle what is binding in there.

something could have stuck in the locking mechanism.
