Question about 2008 Chevrolet Express

1 Answer

Is there any way to nuetralize the feature that locks the doors when the engine is on and the door is closed. If one does not have the window open it locks you out. I am getting tired of driving out to vehuicles with a spare set of keys to let the driver in. The dealer say's that nothing can be done.

Do a reset on the door system, by pulling the door fuse. I don't have location, possibly drivers side fuse box.

1998 golf gti vr6 power sunroof doesn't close when i turn key at the door


Check your wires and fuses, I am having a similar problem myself as the windows open, but not the sunroof and this is a feature that VW had on most of these models with power locks, even my 96 Gti did it. I will repost with what fixed it ASAP.

My steering column is locked and I cannot get the key to turn to start the car. I have a 2008 pontiac g5.


The battery dead? Remove the battery cables and wait and then see if the key will turn. If it will not remove the key ( will it come out?) the key can be the wrong one ( maybe) you can have a blown fuse. Any fuse so you need to check them all. If the key will turn with the battery disconnected then put the car in park and turn the key off and remove it from the car. with the window down and the doors all closed and the hod open reconnect the known good ( charged Battery) with the battery connected don't open the door but reach in and put the key in and start the car. the doors should lock when the engine starts. reach in and unlock the door and get in and close the door. then turn the car off and remove the key get out and close the door and lock it with the key. wait a minute and then unlock the door with the key get in and drive away like normal. do everything though or you'll unset the reset cycle. Make shure that the break lights work as they control the unlocking feature of the collum.

you have just found this out.it is a standard feature of all vw/audi/seat/skoda cars
unlock/hold key over,the windows will go down

then unlock the car with the remote,car reset.
sit in car with engine on,switch off engine(do not open any door)driver can open/close any window(you can even put your hand into window frame and it will rollback,all on its(not for fun)
if windows rollback after you have used button to close them you may have sticky runners/rubbers.

2002 Explorer V6. Power door locks have stopped working.


Mine just started doing the exact same thing tonight. I disconnected the battery to change a DPFE sensor and when I reconnected I had this problem. I also have auto headlamps and they are not working either. I don't know what is wrong, I checked all the fuses also and everything looks good. I wonder if it is a relay??? I will make sure I respond to you if I find a solution.

Door Lock?


this is not a problem, it is a feature. its purpose is to try and make it harder to lock your keys in your car. try this: with the door open, pull the inner door handle like you are opening the door. with the handle pulled, lock the door. it will lock.

None of the driver's side window and door lock controls work. Additionally, none of the other door's widow controls work. The front passenger-side door locks do work.


For killerbee6 - Lets try the simplist possible thing first. Is the window lock (child safety feature) button pressed in? Its located there on the drivers door with all the other windows switches. If it is, then all windows will be locked in their current location. Also the back doors have their own (child safety feature) manual switch located on the end of the door that opens out (which override the manual "pullup lever" inside, to unlock door)

Second possibility is that the modular connector in the drivers door has seperated from its other half.

For bbmason - sounds like your vehicle was broken into and the theft (which didn't get the truck) may have popped off a switch that is attached to the back side of the key cylinder. That switch tells the Security system a key was used to unlock door, and since its not attached to the cylinder anymore it can't return to it normal 'home/nuetral' state, so when you arm the security it disarms 5 seconds later.
