It is the door lock actuator. It needs to be replaced in order to resolve the issue. The part is available from your local Mitsubishi dealer only.

Power door lock doesnt work


The power lock mechanism on these have this plastic gear setup and they crack. When it splits it just spins and makes that noise. You'll have replace the module, about $60 IIRC.

My rear door makes a buzzing noise when i lock the doors... I have a 2004 kia spectra....


This noise could be cause from the door lock actuator. If this is the Problem it will need replacement. But in most cases if the actuator is faulty the locks will jump, and not always lock on that door.

Rear doors dont always lock on my 1998 jeep they make a noise


Sounds like your door lock actuators are going bad. They are the solenoids that actually pull the door lock closed or push it open. Have them checked and replaced if necessary.

My 2005 Explorer door locks are making a screeching noise when they lock and unlock. It sounds like urnk. I recently had my whole back end repaired due to an accident so I am wondering if this is part of...


The locks are applied by a door lock actuator in each door & tailgate. See which one it appears to be. Once located disassemble door or tailgate & see if something is interfering with its operation. If nothing hitting or rubbing on it. The actuator may be lubed with penetrating oil. If that cures the noise your done. If not you will need to replace actuator.

Back door wont unlock


I have a 1999 Chrysler T&C 3.8 liter like yours and it sounds
like you are having the same the same problem I had.
Every time you hit the door unlock or lock button, it made a loud
buzz like you just missed a question on a game show. ;-)

It turned out the problem was the rear lift gate lock actuator. The part costs
about $40 from the dealer if I can recall correctly.

The repair involves: 1st removing the middle and rear seats to get
access from the inside to the rear gate
(obviously you will have to remove the seats from the side doors
since the rear gate won't open yet)

Remove the plastic inside rear gate panel and molding (phillips screws)
Once you remove the panel, you may see a way to manually
open the rear gate. As I recall, I think there was a access opening
covered from the inside with a black weather/insulation tape.
Carefully removing this out of the way gave access to a way to
manually open the gate, making the rest of the work easy.

Remove the electrical connector and the mounting bolts
to remove from the actuator. It is attached to the inside
rear gate with 2 or 3 bolts (10 mm?)

Remove the old one and replace the part, then put it all back
together, make sure you reconnect the electrical connector

Takes about an hour for the whole job (max)

Hope this helps,

Wes

Rear door panel/actuators


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
