Question about 1993 Saturn SL2

1 Answer

Power door locks drain battery

Our power door locks drain the battery, I had to replace the door panel a year ago ond probably didn't get the wiring right. Now a year later we are having problems with the battery draining and suspect it is the door locks. What fuse do I need to remove to isolate the locks and what other accessories will I lose if I do that? My son has the car at school and I can't test things out.

Hello I have a 1997 Honda civic ex coupe manual trans, my issue is that the power lock won't work and the passenger side window doesn't work either, the only one working is the driver side power window...


Most probable cause , ,,, when you open & close the door, the wires in the rubber boot (accordian like) harness in between the door hinges, get cut and will cause alot if issues, without burning a fuse !

My 2002 Impala is having electrical problems. The cruise control stopped working, the power locks makes clicking noises and sometimes will not work and the trunk opened on its own. What is wrong?


Could be a shorted out or damaged power door lock module. I had a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais that had corrosion on the contacts of the module that when cleaned worked fine. Before that, the power door locks would lock the doors inexplicably.

For the cruise, I would check the fuse first.

Also, parts are probably still available for your car since it was made 8 years ago, which falls under the 10 year limit.

97 Ford Taurus with wiring problem


The fans are relay controlled, likely problem. Most current demanding componants have relays because a switch circuit would burn out. All your issures are very possibly relay issues. Find the relay bank and chk yhem for overheating, burn out, or plain ole malfunction. Good Luck, -Ned-

2005 Colorado drivers side window and remote locking system


Just figured it out and replicated it 3 times..

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.

My power locks started making noise, now my battery is dead. Can I just disconnect the power from the locks so it doesn't wear out my battery?


yes the best way is to remove the door panel and unplug the plug at the lock its on the inside of the door.but i think your problem is going to be at the drivers door jam you will most likely find chaffed wires possibly touching causing the drain and working on their own.hope this helps you.

Rear door power lock--1996 Dodge Ram van (Roadtrek)-- won't open


Check all of your dash fuses inside the glove box if these are fine. Remove the door panel nd check to see that the wires have not come loose they tendto come loose from closing the rear door.
