Question about 2003 GMC Safari

Open Question

2003 Safari - Passenger and Drivers side doors will not open, manually (using key) or with power locks. This happened after both doors were manually locked. If the door is jammed, why would both doors

Attempted to open both doors from inside, door handle moves, but will not relese the door. Manual functions on vechicles should always work regardless, as it is a safety feature. Power locking devices are using the locking mechanism, shared with the using the key. If one door jammed it could be a loose door or bent door hinge, but when both doors won't open the problem has to be sharing common interest (features). Removing panels from doors isnt going to be easy. Anyone with insight to "unique" problem solving, or experience will find this interesting, and your assistance would be ideal Thanks

The Actuator is not functioning anymore, check to see if there is a fuse for it first. If that is ok then remove the actuator and test it outside using some wire and your car battery to see if actually moves or doesent this will tell you if you need a replacement.

SOURCE: 2000 GMC safari Power locks will not work + cant unlock back door

This could be a problem with your primary switch in the driver's door. Everything passes through that switch. Verify voltage continuity to the switch (Haynes or Chilton will give you a conclusive wiring schematic), and you must also verify that the switch itself is not faulty. Using a DMM (digital multi meter), measure the resistance (ohms) between 2 contact points, then hit the switch and verify that this number increases.

SOURCE: Rear pass. door locking mechanism

I have been dealing with the same problem and I'm a little further than you are. You need two people to do this job. Open the front door and it will give you access to the hinge pin. If I remember correctly you can pop off the snap rings and pull the pins. This will allow you to open the door just enough to get the interior panel off the door to allow you access to the actuator. Unfortunately, both my rear door actuators have been done twice in the last 5 weeks, But they are seized in the locked position again. I,m pretty sure its not just the actuators that are bad. Something else is causing this and that is why I'm here. Good luck with that one.

There could be quite a few things that could be the cause. I would recommend having your local mechanic evaluate and diagnose it. It could be anything from a loose electrical connection in the door to a faulty power lock actuator.

seems to be a common problem on 03 kia's. most likely the latch mechanism is worn (they are mostly plastic and pretty cheaply made) and will need to be replaced. It happened to my kia and most mechanics directed me to the electric actuator, but all electircs were ok. drivers door latch went bad about 45k and front passenger door latch went bad about 65k.

All power door locks lock except the driver side front door


On my jetta, if you don't lock the doors with the remote then all doors lock except the drivers door. try this
1. closing all doors walk around to the passenger door.
2.open the door, using the button on the passenger door, lock the doors.

I had this happen to me on my jetta and found you could lock all the doors if you did'nt use the drivers door or you locked using the remote. They did this to keep the driver from locking the keys in the car. I hope this worked for you

Central locking keeps locking the car. Unable to open drivers side door


Hello, we have a 2003 Kia Rio- problem as above- unlocking and then locking- only way in and out through passenger door.
This is what I have done and everything is back to normal- I hope it works for you.
1 Remove 25AMP fuse that controls door central locking from main box under the bonnet.
(AT this stage my passenger door opens- drivers side does not, the mechanism won't fully rotate)
2, Spray key with WD40 (or similar moisture repellent lubricant). Gently turn key to loosen mechanism- Partly remove key and spray lubricant into lock, have fun locking and unlocking!
3, Replace 25 amp fuse
4, Write yourself a cheque for garage labour and parts and wife brownie points!
