Are you getting power to the solenoid when you press lock/unlock? If you are, because of the age I would suggest looking at the door latch asm.'s. They are known to rust up and cause malfunctions.

I'm going to guess that's it's just a two wire hook up. There's only two ways to hook it up. Try it one way and if the door locks when you press lock on the switch it's on there right, otherwise just reverse the wires.

I personaly would run amsoil 5w-30 or royal purple 5w-30. Those are a full synthetic and I can tell you from experience they are great. I run Royal Purple in my silverado and Amsoil in my cbr 600rr. Also, from independant studies done on Royal Purple and Amsoil they can go longer between oil changes then most oils. Royal Purple has been tested after driving 22,500 miles and still could be used if you wanted to leave it in the engine. I usually change mine around every 10,000 to 12,000 miles.

It may be as simple as reprogramming your system. There is a way to re-synch your keys to the system. Use the instructions at:

That vehicle had a lot of problems with the PCM "Power Control Module" and that may be your problem.

Check for a broken wire in the door jam. Other wise I think, You need to research this more, that the Left Front Power Window Switch is actually a door module. I would guess it has either lost power or gone bad.

Power door lock on chevy equinox does not work on one door how can it be fixed


I had the same problem but on the passenger side door. The wire harness on the passenger side had broken wires. Purple wire was for the lock and thicker blue and darker grey was power for the windows. I used butt connectors to repair and it worked like a charm. Area was tight to work in between vehicle frame and door. Was easier to remove door panel and disconnect harness at vehicle frame and pull harness through door to complete the repair.
