Question about 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier

Open Question

94 cavalier door

Power locks on 94 chevy cavalier 4dr are not working very well, sometimes wont work, as well as the front passenger door lock not disengaging from the inside. I can use the key on the door and unlock it, but it takes some muscle, and from the inside the power lock will not unlock it, and manually trying to push the lock to unlock it takes alot of strength, like maybe something inside the door is unaligned or jamming it, not sure what to do to fix this problem.

SOURCE: Power door locks won't unlock + tailgate won't open

your issue involves the master control switch panel on the drivers side and or the passenger side as well some how the contact inside the switch assembly has either shorted out or no longer makes contact for the unlock side of the circuit. replace the drivers side panel switchs it's either a series of switc hs or mostimes one sigle board of switchs. you are better off going to an auto parts store rather than a GM dealership this will save you quite a bit on cash on the parts. now as to the rear tailgate. if it is electronic controled and there is an issue with the master switch you can,t manually unlock it because of a safty issue built in the system. you can manually unlock the passenger compartment doors for thew same reasons of safety but doesn't apply to the tailgate. just replace the parts and this will take care of the problem

SOUND LIKE THE DRIVERS DOOR LOCK SWITCH IS STUCK IN THE UNLOCK POSITION. SINCE THE DRIVERS DOOR LOCK SWITCH OVER-RIDES THE PASSENGER DOOR, I WOULD REPLACE THE SWITCH WITH A NEW ONE. HOPE THIS SOLVES THE PROBLEM. GOOD LUCK. KEEP US POSTED, WE ARE ANXIOUS TO KNOW.

SOURCE: Driver and Passenger auto door locks are inop.

Sounds like bad wiring, or bad door lock actuators. Check for power while locking/unlocking the doors.

SOURCE: 08 avalanche pass side power door lock not working

if you have any knowledge of automotivce electrical, (and that you need to use a "circuit tester" and not a test light) test for power when someone presses the button. it wouldnt be uncommon for most vehicles for the lock actuator/solenoid/duty actuator to wear out, get weak and fail. this is most probable. given that this is an 08, have you checked withe dealer to see if its still under warranty. if we are only talking a few miles and they wont do anything, look in your owners handbook and get the 1 800 number and get GM's customer service involved. cheers.

SOURCE: door locks and power window

Just did this procedure I got from coloradofans.com forums:

"any type of power/voltage change seems to trigger this issue

The most common symptom is power locks fail and only the driver window quits, however that is on the extended cab.

Steps to fix and it works every time.

take door panel off driver's door
Disconnect the wiring attached to window and power lock control unit
disconnect battery cables
connect the negative to the positive cable(((NO BATTERY CONNECTED)))
This will act to short residual voltage in the system

5 minutes later
place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
connect the wiring to the window/lock controller
connect the negative cable to the battery
then the positive
open drivers side door
turn key to the off position((do not remove yet)) you should get a series of dings through speakers telling you the key is still in the ignition
once it begins dinging pull the key out and you should hear the door lock solenoids trigger and the windows should work." - Coloradofans.com forums

Passanger side doors wont lock


From where , any switch ? driver door switch or either passenger door switch . This is a very complex system controlled by modules (microprocessors)
?€¢
The driver door switch assembly (DDSA)


?€¢
The driver door module (DDM)


?€¢
The passenger door module (PDM)


?€¢
The rear door module (RDM)


?€¢
The LH front power door lock switch


?€¢
The RH front power door lock switch


?€¢
The LH front door lock actuator


?€¢
The RH front door lock actuator


?€¢
The LH rear door lock actuator


?€¢
The RH rear door lock actuator


?€¢
The remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)


?€¢
The power door serial data circuit


?€¢
The class 2 serial data circuit


?€¢
The DRVMDL Fuse - 10 amp


?€¢
The PDM Fuse - 10 amp


?€¢
The RRINMDL Fuse - 10 a
Class 2 and Power Door Serial Data Links
The class 2 and power door data circuits are both serial data links. The serial data circuits replace cables in the vehicle by multiplexing (time-sharing) data to and from each device over a single wire referenced to ground. If the power door serial data is lost, both the rear door module (RDM) and the passenger door module (PDM) enters the sleep mode. With the RDM and the PDM in sleep mode, no power door operations are possible.
Your best bet is to take it to the dealer or an ASE certified repair shop .

Beings as everything that stopped working is on the passenger side, I'd think some wiring got disconnected or broken.

I have a 2008 Chevy silverado with power locks and the driver side lock button is not working. It was previously only working for the passenger door but not the driver door, now is not working for either....


Its the switches themselves..sometimes you can disconnect the wires, then reconnect them and they might work..( I did this to mine..surprise - they worked.?.) If they do not work after reconnection.. its new switch time..
