Cargo door Power Door Lock Actuator Repair

Unable to unlock the rear cargo door. Unable to remove the actuator. Is there a release lever or anything to manually open the rear cargo door in order to be able to remove the actuator ? I have the interior panel removed and able to get to the actuator but can't see how to remove it. I was told that there should be a release lever or something to be able to override the lock and open the cargo door.

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Sequoia - Rear hatch door lock is

Welcome to Fixya

Remove the vinyl pull-strap that is located on the rear panel, use a #2 philips to do this. Now start to remove the large inside door panel. This panel has the rear glass inside rubber anti-rattle blade attached to the top of it. (If you were able to open the hatch door from the outside you can remove the inside panel by starting at the bottom of the panel and using a thin blade to lift the panel away from the door and then pop the plastic barbs loose, then lift it up and off of the door sheet-metal.) Starting at one corner, bend out and pull up on the panel where it is hooked over the top of the window opening sheet-metal. It takes a little force to get it started but be persistent, once it is started work towards the other end. Once it's loose at the top you can reach inside and pop loose the plastic barbs that retain the panel and remove it completely.
Thank you for using Fixya!

SOURCE: power door locks will not lock except manually

First of all, check ACC fuse in the driver side junction box. The central controller for power door locks is the body ECU. From your description it may be working only partially. Can the doors be locked using a key? If so, this would indicate the actual locking mechanism is OK. Do the front door lock control switches lock the doors?

Fuel door won't open on a 2008 g8 pontiac


Fuel Fill Door Description and Operation
The fuel door latch actuator shares the circuit with the driver door latch assembly. The body control module (BCM), upon receipt of a lock switch lock or unlock signal, will switch the appropriate door lock actuator, as well as a fuel filler door release actuator control circuits to battery positive voltage. The opposing side of the door lock and fuel filler door release actuators is connected to ground by the I/P fuse block through the other door lock actuator control circuit and the doors, along with the fuel filler door release, will lock or unlock as commanded.
Circuit/System Testing
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the fuel door release actuator.
  2. Test for less than 1 ohm between the control circuit terminal 1 and ground.
  3. ?‡'
    If greater than the specified range, test the control circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance.

  4. Test for less than 1 ohm between the control circuit terminal 2 and ground.
  5. ?‡'
    If greater than the specified range, test the control circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance.

  6. Connect a test lamp between the control circuit terminal 1 and control circuit terminal 2.
  7. Ignition ON, command the doors to LOCK and UNLOCK by using the door lock switch. The test lamp should illuminate while commanding the LOCK and UNLOCK states.
  8. ?‡'
    If the test lamp remains OFF during either command, test either control circuit for a short to ground.

  9. If all circuits test normal, test or replace the fuel door release actuator.
Component Testing
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the fuel door release actuator
  2. Install a 15A fused jumper wire between the control terminal 1 and 12V. Momentarily install a jumper wire between the control terminal 2 and ground. The fuel door release actuator should perform the LOCK/UNLOCK function.
  3. ?‡'
    If the function does not perform as specified, replace the fuel door release actuator.

  4. Reverse the jumper wires. The fuel door release actuator should perform the UNLOCK/LOCK function.
?‡'
If the function does not perform as specified, replace the fuel door release actuator.

Why does my 2004 Chevy Silverado lock and unlock while in drive? When turned off and no keys in ignition the drivers door will unlock on its own a short time later.


Gremlins ! HA HA HA sorry ! First off a little bit on how they work an what all is involved in making them work ! There are a few control modules in the mix , switches ,relays etc...
Door Lock System Components
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
?€¢
The driver door module (DDM)

?€¢
The passenger door module (PDM)

?€¢
The body control module (BCM)

?€¢
The driver information center (DIC)

?€¢
The rear door lock switch

?€¢
The door lock relay

?€¢
The door unlock relay

?€¢
The liftgate lock relay--utility vehicles with liftgate only

?€¢
The reversible door lock actuators in each of the doors and liftgate

?€¢
LOCKS 20A fuse (rear lock/unlock relay supply voltage)

?€¢
ECC 10A fuse (liftgate lock relay supply voltage)

Door Lock System Controls
The power door lock system can be controlled by any of the following:
?€¢
A power door lock or unlock switch activation

?€¢
A keyless entry transmission

?€¢
An automatic door lock function

?€¢
A delay lock function

?€¢
Door lock cylinder switch activation

?€¢
Lockout Prevention

?€¢
An airbag deployment

The front power door lock switches are integral components of the driver door module (DDM) and passenger door module (PDM). The switches are two position normally open rocker switches. When placed in either the lock or unlock positions, the switches provide a direct input to the DDM or PDM. The DDM or PDM monitors these inputs and sends a Class 2 message indicating a change in the switch's respective position. Modules which activate the power door lock motors receive the Class 2 message and activate the motor in the appropriate direction to lock or unlock the vehicle's doors and liftgate. The rear door lock switch provides a lock and unlock signal to the body control module (BCM). The BCM upon receipt of a lock or unlock signal will control the rear door lock relays and also send a Class 2 message to the DDM and PDM to perform the appropriate function.
The modules which activate the power lock motors are:
?€¢
The DDM (driver door lock actuator).

?€¢
The PDM (passenger front door lock actuator).

?€¢
The BCM (both rear door lock actuators and cargo door/liftgate).
The DDM and PDM are directly connected to the respective door lock actuator through the door lock motor lock and unlock circuits. Once a door lock or unlock request has been received, the module will supply battery voltage to one side of the actuator and ground the other causing the doors to lock or unlock.
The rear passenger and cargo doors differ slightly in that they use lock and unlock relays. The relays supply and coil sides receive a constant voltage through the battery voltage supply circuit. The normally closed contacts are connected to ground and the control side is connected to the BCM. Once a door lock or unlock request has been received by the BCM, the BCM will ground the control side of the appropriate relay. This energizes the relay and allows voltage to be applied to either the door lock motor lock or unlock circuits. since the other side of the door lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the opposing relay to ground, the doors lock or unlock.
The first place to start is have a factory or equivalent scan tool hooked up , one that can read BCM DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ! This could lead to a fix faster ! Watch these three videos !

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Power Windows and Power Locks not working.


The power windows an power locks are controlled by a module , DDM - driver door module . As far as the locks locking when you put the vehicle into reverse an unlocking when you put the vehicle into park , that's how there are suppose to work , automatic lock an unlock feature . When you put the vehicle into any gear from park the locks should lock . Did she hit window lockout function ?

The power door lock system consists of the following components:
• The driver door module (DDM)
• The passenger door module (PDM)
• The body control module (BCM)
• The driver information center (DIC)
• The rear door lock switch
• The door lock relay
• The door unlock relay
• The liftgate lock relay--utility vehicles with liftgate only
• The reversible door lock actuators in each of the doors and liftgate
• LOCKS 20A fuse (rear lock/unlock relay supply voltage)
• ECC 10A fuse (liftgate lock relay supply voltage .

Programmable Automatic Door Locks
The automatic door lock feature can be programmed to control the door lock system. The automatic door lock feature is factory programmed to have all doors lock and unlock. For detailed instructions on programming the automatic door locks, refer to Vehicle Personalization in Personalization.
When the automatic door lock feature is programmed to control the door lock system, the driver door module (DDM), passenger door module (PDM) and body control module (BCM) will lock the vehicle doors if the following inputs are true:
• Ignition 1 input is active.
• All door jamb switch inputs are inactive.
• Cargo door or liftgate/liftglass ajar inputs are inactive.
• Transmission is shifted out of park.
This automatic door lock function will only occur once per ignition cycle unless, a door jamb switch input changes state to active and back to inactive. Then the DDM, PDM and BCM will lock all doors again.
Once the automatic door lock feature has locked the doors, the BCM will then unlock all the doors when the transmission is shifted into park.

The front power door lock switches are integral components of the driver door module (DDM) and passenger door module (PDM). The switches are two position normally open rocker switches. When placed in either the lock or unlock positions, the switches provide a direct input to the DDM or PDM.

L door dose not lock all door locks


This may be due to a bad lock actuator, i will need to ask a few questions first.Can you lock the door by hand using the button? or is the lever stuck?Is the problem that it does not work with the power locks only?
Let me try to answer these, first if the door lock does not work with the power locks then the door lock actuator may be bad, the door panel will need to be removed and test for power at actuator. While inside the door check lock linkage.If the door lock lever wont move then that may also be related to a frozen lock actuator, that is the same as above. a bad or frozen lock actuator will not allow door to lock or unlock but sometimes a bad actuator will not work with the power button but will allow you to lock and unlock with lock lever or door key, the door panel needs to be removed to check . good day.

How would I disconnect the power to the power door locks ONLY on the cargo side and rear doors so only a key can be used to open them?


Go inside the door panel and simply unplug the the door lock actuator. This will not hurt anything or cause problems anywhere else! If you need instructions or diagrams, let me know.

Locks & Lock Systems
Power Door Locks

Diagnosis & Testing
  1. Check the fuses for the door lock circuit. Verify there is 12 volts at the fuse terminal. If voltage is not present, check the wiring.
  2. Remove the door trim panel of the affected door.
  3. Unplug the connector to the door lock actuator. Connect a test lamp across the terminals of the harness.
  4. Verify that the light illuminates briefly in both the lock and unlock positions of the switch.
    1. If it does not, there may be an open/high resistance or a short to ground in the wiring. If the wiring is OK, the IP fuse block is faulty.
    2. If it does illuminate and the lock actuator still does not work, the actuator is faulty.
