Here is a recent reply I gave to a person with similar problem, which can be related to the BCM.(Body control module) I suspect your is in same category.
Disconnect your battery for 5 minutes or so, then reconnect, and see if that helped at all. I have heard in some cases it worked successfully. If that doesn't cure it, I would go to the plug on the BCM itself, (with battery disconnected) and pull the plug off, inspect it, and clean it & mating pins on BCM very thoroughly with contact cleaner or similar electrical cleaner. Add a little di-electric grease to connection & put it back together nice & tight & see what happens. The BCM is usually located on passenger side in kick panel area,(by right foot when sitting) either behind kick panel or above it.

I have a 04 chevy tahoe and a certified instaled,untill cuple days ago i try to unlock the doors and it wont unlock or lock but the chirp does sound. Also if i do it manually does work, reprogram?


If it chirps or flashes the lights when you try to lock or unlock, it's recognizing the signal correctly. Unless there's a disable mode I don't know about (check the owner's guide), there is probably a fault in the power lock section of the circuit. Since the power locks work from inside the vehicle (manually), check the lock wiring harness at the receiver, or the lock relay inside it.

Power door locks keep unlocking, and then when unlocked they keep clicking to unlock repeatedly, the car will not stay locked and had to disconnect the battery to keep it locked and so not to need a jump...


it could be a shoted wire to ground going to the door lock actuators or a bad door lock actuator.

Disconnect all door lock actuators & see what happens, If ok, connect one at a time and see which one acts up.

Camry 1996 automatic power lock doen't work, but windows work.


if you can here relays when unlocking/locking check for power at door lock actuators inside doors, if you have power on lock/unlock and good earth from connector actuators are faulty.
if no power on test light when operating check output from central door lock module while operating, none coming out of module then it might need replacing.
check 30Amp power fuse for main relay under bonnet (which goes to pin 8 white/blue on module)and 10Amp gauge fuse in cab(pin 1 blue/red on module),pin 15 is also power when relay is on(red/blue) with test light, and module/ actuators.
check outputs from module pin 3 & 4
blue/red
blue/black
that go to door locks

Flashing interior lights, battery wont keep a charge, power locks activating while driving?


You have a loose or shorted wire someplace, all that you can do is start looking for it. It could be inside a door, or the harness that feeds the door.

Door lock won't lock/unlock with power button


I would think then, that it has to be a broken wire somewhere. Probably in the door jam of the door that doesn't work, or possibly inbside the door. First thing is to see if you have power back to it. Hook a test light up to the power lock inside the door. When you hit the button at the driver's door, it should light up. It could also be a rod has come apart in the door, or broken. You'll have to remove the inner door panel to investigate.

Power door locks going crazy


One of your door lock inside switches are bad.Find the one that doesn't feel right when you push it in either lock or unlock.The internal spring is broke causing the lock relay to keep try to lock or unlock until it gets hot & protects.
