Automatic door locks not operating correctly

The doors work correctly when you manually use the push buttons to either unlock or lock the doors it also works correctly when you take the car out of park and release the brake the doors do lock. They don't work when you take the car into the park position and let off the brake. Any ideas and where would that switch be located?

If you have a floor shifter the switch is located under the front on of the base of the shifter. Above the window buttons pop out the little holder there should be switches on both sides that the button on the shifter activates with a small pin that rocks back and forth when pulling on the shifter button

Passenger door locks don't unlock.


You need to understand how they work , do you know about automotive electronic controls ? Your switches are just inputs to the BCM - body control module !
Door Locks Power and Ground
For door lock operation, the IP Fuse Block supplies battery positive voltage, through the 15 amp DR LK/TRUNK fuse, to the BCM. The BCM uses this circuit exclusively to apply power to the door lock actuators. The BCM is also supplied a ground circuit, which it uses exclusively to ground the door lock actuators. When a door lock is pulsed, the BCM internally connects these two circuits to the appropriate lock and unlock control circuits to actuate the locking or unlocking functions.
When diagnosing door lock malfunctions, these circuits must not be confused with the other battery voltage and ground circuits of the BCM. The appropriate wiring schematic must be used to locate the correct circuits. Failure to identify the correct battery voltage and ground circuits of the BCM during diagnosis of door lock concerns may result in misdiagnosis and unneccessary parts replacement.
Passenger Door Unlock Operation
When the BCM detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the Unlock position, it switches the door lock actuator unlock control circuits to voltage. Since the door lock actuator lock control circuit is at ground potential within the BCM, the passenger door lock actuators transition to the Unlock position.
The door lock actuator unlock control circuits are dedicated control circuits used only for the passenger door lock actuators. This is done so that the driver door may be unlocked individually before unlocking the passenger doors using a keyless entry transmitter or an automatic door unlock function, if programmed. When the keyless entry transmitter is used to unlock the passenger doors, the BCM requires a repeated unlock command before it performs the unlock function. However, when the unlock input is from a door lock switch, a single unlock command is all that is required to unlock all doors.

Horn honks doors lock be self


does this help? look in owners manual for how to turn "on or off" the auto lock feature.


Automatic Door Lock/Unlock
The automatic door unlock function is a vehicle personalization feature with the following 3?programmable modes of operation:
1. All: All of the doors will automatically unlock. 2. Driver: The driver's door will automatically unlock. 3. None: The doors will need to be unlocked by a door switch command or by pressing the the lock button on the RKE transmitter. The All or Driver modes may also be programmed as to when the automatic door unlocking will occur.
1. Key Off: The door(s) will unlock when the key is turned off. 2. Shift to Park: The door(s) will unlock when the vehicle is shifted into P (Park). The delay lock function may be enabled or disabled. When the function has been disabled, the doors will only lock by a door switch command or by pressing the the lock button on the RKE transmitter. When enabled, the doors will not lock until five seconds after the last door is closed.

Cant get my 99 xj8 out of valet mode, and my trunk will not open.


There are Valet keys (often with a green knob) that will
only unlock the front doors and the ignition but not the
glove box nor boot/trunk.

When either the front door locks or the console button is
pressed, all the doors should lock. Likewise, when either
front door is unlocked, all the doors fuel filler lid and if
selected, the boot will also unlock.

Boot lock has three positions. Unlocked to the left,
automatic with the doors in the center, always locked to the
right. Simply remove the key in what ever position you desire.

The locks can get confused and not work correctly. Simply
sit in the car and manually lock all the doors. That will
usually get the locking module sane again.

I have a 2001 Accord and if I hit the unlock button and do not open any door within a certain amount of time (2-5 minutes) it automatically re-locks it. Is there a setting I can change to prevent this...


Hi there,

Hope the following procedures helps.

TRANSMITTER TEST



NOTE:

If the doors unlock or lock with the transmitter, but the LED on the transmitter does not come on, the LED is faulty; replace the transmitter.

If any door is open, you cannot lock or unlock the door with the transmitter.

If you unlocked the doors with the transmitter, but do not open any of the doors within 30 seconds, the doors relock automatically. ?

The doors do not lock or unlock with the transmitter if the ignition key is inserted in the ignition switch.





1. Press the lock or unlock button 5 or 6 times to reset the transmitter.

If the locks work, the transmitter is OK.

If the locks don't work, go to step 2.



2. Open the transmitter and check for water damage.

If you find any water damage, replace the transmitter.

If there is no water damage, go to step 3.

3. Replace the transmitter battery (A) with a new one, and try to lock and unlock the doors with the transmitter by pressing the lock or unlock button 5 or 6 times.

If the doors lock and unlock, the transmitter is OK.

If the doors don't lock and unlock, go to step 4.



NOTE: The transmitters for LX models and EX models are different and are not interchangeable.



4. Reprogram the transmitter, then try to lock and unlock the doors (see Transmitter Programming ).

If the doors lock and unlock, the transmitter is OK.

If the doors don't lock and unlock, replace the transmitter.



TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING

Storing transmitter codes:

The codes of up to three transmitters can be read into the keyless receiver unit memory. (If a fourth code is stored, the code which was input first will be erased.)



NOTE: It is important to maintain the time limits between the steps.



1. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

2. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

3. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.

4. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).

5. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

6. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.

7. Within 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).

8. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

9. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.

10. Within 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).

11. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

12. Confirm you can hear the sound of the door lock actuators. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button again.

13. Within 15 sec., aim the remaining transmitters at the keyless receiver unit (up to two additional ones) whose codes you want to store at the receiver, and press the transmitter lock or unlock buttons. Confirm that you can hear the sound of the door lock actuators after each transmitter code is stored.

14. Turn the ignition switch OFF, and pull out the key.

15. Confirm proper operation of the transmitters.

Cheers!
Ryan
