Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada
I recently bought a 1999 jeep cherokee sport with an odd problem. The front driver's side and passenger door locks are cannot be locked with either the remote or the key, but the buttons on the doors are stuck in the LOCKED position. I removed the door panel on the driver's side but could not find anything jammed. I assume the motors are good because I can here them struggling to work when I hit the remote button. Any suggestions?
If you would remove the door panel again, with the window rolled up, inspect the piece of linkage that is attached to the lock cylinder. It is held to the lock cylinder by a clip, then follow it down to where that same piece of linkage attaches to the door lock assembly. It is also held in place there by a clip, or at least it should be.
Insert a key in the outside of the lock cylinder and attempt to move the linkage. If there is a restriction, follow the linkage to find out why. It may be that the linkage has dropped off, or it may be the lock mechanism has jammed.
The reason it works from the inside is because a different piece of linkage operates the lock mechanism.
If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.

You may need to then replace the soleniods that unlock and lock the doors , it is common for them to get weak and not work properly anymore
