Question about 1994 Cadillac DeVille
I can hear the electrical movement when i depress the door lock/unlock switch. however, there doesn't seem to be the power to push the lock up or down as the other (3) have.
i can manually (with little effort) move the lock, but the power is lacking to move it electronically.
What it sounds like to me is ,a rod or linkage that attaches from the electrical solenoid to the lock mechanism has came apart, see these rods and linkage are held by thin metal and sometime plastic clips and they can brake and crack at any given time! u need to remove the door panel and sound barrier and inspect all the mechanism.when u remove the panel lift/pry the window up and dn button panel out of the arm rest and u will see a phlip screw head,this has to be removed before u try to remove the door panel, when the screw is removed,grab the door panel with one hand by the bottom and the top by the window with the other and give it a quick **** straight up, their may be a pop in fastener at the lower left hand corner of the panel, so u may have to pop it out first, then **** it up, u will see plastic fingers around the panel that set in the door to hold it in, be careful not to brake them off, now u can move the panel out of the way enough to do what needs to be done and not have to disconnect any electrical plugs,(hopfully).hope this helps,just take your time and u should have no problem, and save some $. good luck to u..
