Power locks not working right

The power locks on my 05 colorado wont work right with the remote. When you try to unlock the door with the remote it turns on the interior light but doesn't unlock the door. It also does not unlock the doors when put into park. The remote functions fine when locking and it locks when put into gear. The locks work fine with the power lock switch. It just happened all the sudden.

Hey, this might work.....get in truck, close doors, put key in ignition in lock position.....hold down the door lock button on driver side door control and wait for the lock control to be displayed on the information screen(odometer read-out) should say like lock 1, lock 2, lock 3, lock 4.....or something, I always reset mine to LOCK 1, to do this hold the odometer reset button on dash for a sec or two til it changes settings, then release, repeat till you get to LOCK 1, then quickly press and release odometer reset button to exit program, this is the function to lock doors over 15 mph and when out of park and to unlock doors when returned to park......yours' might be set to another function number....try it out, let me know if this helps.........good luck!

Common for the door lock solenoid to go bad and your going to need to replace it. You may hear it clicking but it's to weak for it to lock and unlock the door.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

Key wont open door on Chevy Colorado, only remote entry works. Even duplicate key doesn't work. Battery fine.

Try spraying some wd40 into the lock loads of it and keep turning the key left to right might free off.

Or it could be a rod inside the door has come off so the lock wont move to unlock, the central locking has a motor to open the door that is not attached to the rod so it can work without the lock.

Take the door card/trim off and have a look at the rear of the lock, should have 1 rod for the handle, 1 for the lock mechanism and another for the inner handle. some are cables but most are rods

It might just have came off the back of the lock, they use very small plastic clips to hold the rod in place, when it gets cold the crack and fall off so the rod fall's out.

Hope this helps

How to reset keyless remote for 05 colorado

Close all the doors
Put the key into the ignition switch
Press and hold the DOOR unlock switch
Cycle the key On/Off, On/Off
Release the DOOR unlock switch, the doors will lock and unlock to cinfirm program mode
Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons on the remote at the same time for about 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock to confirm the remote is programmed. Repeat this step for up to 4 remotes ( note: all remotes need to be programmed at the same time, re-programming one will de-activate the others)
Turn the key to the RUN position to exit programming mode
Check your remotes to see if they function properly.

Check the relays for the power unlock. They are in one of the fuse panels. Push the door unlock button and find the relay that is clicking. This should fix your problem
