    It is likely a blown fuse. You would think these would be easy to find and replace, but the door lock/power window fuse is not. It is supposedly behind the plastic housing underneath the steering column. This is held on by 4 bolts. I don't know the size of the heads but they are metric so have a metric socket set. I am still looking for the fuse. It is a 30 AMp I believe. Hope this helps some. If you find the fuse before me, please post on here as to where it is exactly. I thought it would be in plain view, but don't see it as yet. Good luck!

2005 Buick Rendezvous you can hear the relay clicking but the door locks will not open and close


Check for broke wires inside the boot from body to driver door , this is a common problem . If you don't find broke wire's , pull the door panel to get at driver door switch . Check for voltage an ground circuit .
Rendezvous Door Lock System Components
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
Driver door lock switch


?€¢
Front passenger door lock switch


?€¢
Door lock actuators in each of the doors


?€¢
Door lock system fuse into the BCM (BCM D 25A fuse)


Door Lock Operation
When the BCM detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the LOCK position, it switches the door lock actuator lock control circuit to voltage. Since the lock actuator unlock control circuits are at ground potential within the BCM, the door lock actuator motors transition to the Lock position.
Driver Door Unlock Operation
When the BCM detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the UNLOCK position, it switches the driver door lock actuator unlock control circuit to voltage. Since the door lock actuator lock control circuit is at ground potential within the BCM, the LF door lock actuator motor transitions to the Unlock position.
The driver door lock actuator unlock control circuit is a dedicated control circuit used only for the driver door lock actuator motor. This is done so that the driver door may be unlocked by itself using a keyless entry transmitter or an automatic door unlock function (if programmed).
Passenger Door Unlock Operation
When the BCM detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the UNLOCK position, it switches the door lock actuator unlock control circuits to voltage. Since the door lock actuator lock control circuit is at ground potential within the BCM, the passenger door lock actuator motors transition to the Unlock position.
The door lock actuator unlock control circuits are dedicated control circuits used only for the passenger door lock actuator motors. This is done so that the driver door may be unlocked seperate from the passenger doors using a keyless entry transmitter or an automatic door unlock function (if programmed). This video on testing computer controlled door locks on a Subaru , doesn't matter . test yours same way > The BCM controls your door locks .
Are all of the power door locks inoperative from both door lock switches?

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 .

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 !

Driver's side window will not work. Door locks work.


My mechanic took out the panel on the driver side control because my right rear passenger window would not work after disconnecting the battery (but the control on the passenger rear door works) and when he put it back, it worked..it's possible it's just a loose wiring connection. My car is a 2006 Lexus RX330 with 58K miles on it.

Door lock on passenger front works on all other doors but the passenger door will not lock nor will the button go up or down.


If the driver door control operates all of the other doors locks correctly then its the switch on the passenger door thats defective . Because the driver control supercedes all other controls. But if the driver door does not operate the passenger door lock then its the passenger door motor/solnoid.

Power locks don't work with remote or control from


The door lock/unlock input from the driver's key switch goes to the Door Multiplex control unit (main switch), the Door multiplex control unit then sends a signal on the BUS (CAN) circuit to the passenger's multiplex control unit; the passenger's multiplex control unit then controls all the door locks. The passenger's door lock key switch inputs to the passenger's multiplex control unit, if the locks work from the passenger's side key switch but not the driver's side key switch, the most likely cause is the driver's multiplex control unit (main switch) not sending the signal to the passenger's side multiplex control unit. This could also be the drivers side door lock actuator. Hope this helps!

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.

Rear side windows


This may be just a case of inadvertently hitting the window lock out n th driver door window switch by mistake. Check that first. Here's some background on window operation

Principles of Operation
The driver power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the master window/door lock/unlock switch (and its integrated "auto down" module). Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The driver power window regulator motor is a reversible motor that is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The passenger power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the passenger power window switch and can also be controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The passenger power window regulator motor is a reversible motor, which is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The power rear quarter glass is also directly controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. The power rear quarter glass power latches also utilize reversible motors. The power rear quarter glass power latches are operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to open the window, and then reversing polarity on those same leads to close the window.
