2008 gmc sierra drivers door lock does not work

It started that the driver door lock worked periodically and now it does not at all. I took the control panel out of the door, cleaned with spray electrical cleaner and it did not fix the problem. Is the actuator, relay or switches broken?

    I failed to mention that its a Sierra Denali 4 door. 3 of the doors locks work fine. The drivers lock does not work at all. I can buy the switch mechanism for the windows, locks and mirrors on line for $100 or so, but I'm not sure if that would work or I'd need to have my FOBs reprogrammed.

The door actuators on these trucks are notorious for going out. I have had all 4 replaced at least once and now the front two are out again....It boils down to bad parts and no decent substitutes. Just have to change them out.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a 2003

I have a similar problem. The remote sometimes opens all doors, and other times it will only open the 2 rear doors. Once inside the vehicle, the driver side window controls intermittently operates all windows and doors. It has no effect on the 2 rear doors, as the window controls still work. This behavior happens intermittently while driving the vehicle.

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: HAVE A 03 GMC SIERRA

I had the same problem in my wife's 2003 Yukon Denali. The power seats and passengers side window wouldn't work. Turned out to be a blown Buss Type fuse in the Underhood Fuse Block. It is the one marked MBEC 1 50amp. Hard to tell if the are blown so look very carefully. Should look like a hoop with two shiny solderlooking bubbles on either side. On my blown fuse, it caught my attention because it looked like the solder was missing and I had to look very closely to see the bottom of the "hoop" was open. They are very hard to remove and must be pulled straight up.
This type of fuse looks like a red square with a clear plastic top showing the fuse link under the plastic. On my vehicle it is on the top row second one from the left.

The most likely culprit is your driver's door control module... it's built into the driver's window switches. Double-check all your fuses before replacing any parts.

No power to left drivers door


it is likely a relay in the fuse panel under the dash. feel the tops of them as you have someone try the power locks or windows if that is not working. the relay should click or become very hot.
