The door panel has 3 or 4 screws. One behind door pull handle, one underneath the door lock/power window pad, and one maybe around the door release handle. The last two have metal retainer clips that have to be gently pryed up to remove. The door now just relies on J hangers to hold it on. Lift up gently. Remove electrical connectors and you have it off.
To reinstall you must hang the door while ensuring that the manual door lock wire is in its slot and reverse the process.

Be careful when removing any panel with the metal clips. Use wide putty knives or prybars to spread out the stress and make sure u get as close to the clip as possible before you apply pressure. If it still doesn't budge you missed a screw.

The electrical connections usually have simple locking tabs and then you wiggle them apart (sometimes a pocket screwdriver comes in handy). If they have red tabs, you might have to slide them first.

On driver side and rear side on driver side, both doors will not lock and unlock when use remote key. How can I fix the power lock to lock and unlock?


If the door locks by using the door switch the fault is with the master control unit. So there is a link failure from the master control to the sub units in the door, it can be a break in the wiring harness in the door hinges as this remote trigger can be lost on the driver side and which goes parallel to the rear side.
remove the panel and check the lines, compare to the other side to find the missing line - open wire. You can loop or wire a new connection from the open section.

98 Chev Blazer. power lock problem. driver's door would not unlock doors, now it will not lock doors. passenger side works fine


you may just have a bad connection under the lock button under switch panel on your drivers door. check electrical plug in at door lock switch by removing that panel from driver door.it may be that you have to replace that door lock switch .thers only one fuse for door locks and if pass side works, it's not blown.

Electric door locks only work from driver door


hi, does the drivers door unlock and lock all the other doors if it does then you may find that a clip or connecting bar has come off the passenger door lock, you would need to take the door panel off to check,

If how ever the passenger door dont lock and unlock via the drivers door then you would need to buy a new central locking motor for the passenger door..

Your best option would be to remove the passenger side door panel and get someone to lock and unlock the drivers door whilst you look at the passenger side and have a look to see what parts are moving this should then give you a good idea of the parts that could be damaged

Left side window swich / window lock panel


You have totake the door panel off to get to the wiring harness. door panel should be held by plastic clips so all you have to do is grab a corner and give a nice tug. First check to make sure there are no screws in it that I may have missed. Remove the clips from the door with a fork and put them in the panel and replace the panel by using a small tap.
