Re: 2005 chevy colorado door locks
It is a bad problem for the Colorado's. Problem is absolutely traced to the drivers window and lock module. Replacing it does the trick at $130. Some have disasembled the module and took the circuit board and placed it in a oven at 375 degrees for 8 minutes. This seems to fix cold solder joints on the board and is worth a try before replacement (won' harm a bad part). Nothing lost to try it.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

change that master switch, if the passenger door lock can lock all doors except the driver door its a problem with that make sure the wire harness is plug in properly and before you change it get some electrical spray and spray the socket and the plug and try it again sometime by simply removing it and replace it solve the problem ok let me know if it work but am kind a sure it will
Hi E,with key OFF, try spraying a little ELECTRIC CONTACT CLEANER from CRC or Radio Shack into space between switch & panel on driver's side,cycle switch back & forth 10 or 12 times.driver's side switch 'overrides' others ,if cleaner dosen't work,replace it first. Good Luck
So , the power door locks won't lock or unlock with switches inside the vehicle or with the keyless entry remote fob.??? Is this correct ????
Do you know what a BCM - body control module is ? Do you know what diagnostic trouble codes are ? If not your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a GM dealer or someother qualified repair shop.
DTC B3142 or B3143
The body control module (BCM) provides an output to the driver switch assembly through the door unlock control circuit for controlling automatic door unlock, anti-lockout, and keyless entry unlock functions.
DTC B3152 or B3153
It could be the driver door master switch , could have broken wires inside the rubber boot from the body to the door . Do the power windows work ?
The keyless entry system has the following main components:
• The transmitters
• The body control module (BCM)
When you press a button on a transmitter, the transmitter sends a signal to the BCM. The BCM interprets the signal and activates the requested function.
How did you do this ,,checked and made sure locks and remote programmed,they were,but still do not work ?????
Need a scan tool to program
Important: All key fobs must be programmed each time any one fob is programmed. The scan tool must stay connected until all of the transmitters are programmed.
Install a scan tool and navigate to the BCM Module Setup menu.
Select Program Key Fobs.
Follow the scan tool on-screen directions.
When the programming operations have completed, operate the transmitter functions to verify correct system operation.
Could be a problem in the shiftier. Your car doors lock automatically when you put the car in drive. They unlock when you put the car in park. The switch located in the shiftier can go bad causing the locks to randomly lock and unlock. Also, this can cause the key to get stuck in the ignition.
Which is it, 98 Eclipse, or 06 Impala? Either way, your door lock actuator is stuck in the locked position either electrically or mechaically. The way to check this is to remove the door panel and unplug the actuator. If door lock can now be moved then you have an electrical problem (faulty door lock switch or faulty door lock module). If you still cannot unlock door then actuator is mechanically bad and must be replace (usually the case)
