    Same problem here! I have a 1997 XK8. When I close the doors, the windows don't automatically close. Instead, they stay open about a 1/2" to an inch. Sometimes they will seal if I open and close the door a few times.

My 1998 Silhouette back door won't unlock with key or fob


follow the steps and fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Enter the passenger side of the vehicle and look under the dashboard, beneath the glove box and near the floor mat. With the aid of a flashlight, locate a large panel, which is held in place by screws. Unscrew the panel manually or use a screwdriver if the screws are too tight.
    • 2 Locate the fuse panel. The panel houses long rows of fuses mounted to the panel. Consult the vehicle's owner manual to determine which of the fuses controls the automatic doors
    • 3 Remove the fuse that controls the automatic doors with a pair of fuse pliers, or carefully with a pair of regular pliers. Examine the fuse by shining the flashlight close against it. If the metal bar inside the fuse is broken, the fuse has been blown.
    • 4 Replace the blown fuse with a fuse of equal amperage. Push the new fuse in place, confirming it is a snug fit.
    • 5 Test the automatic doors before screwing the fuse panel cover back in place. If the doors close automatically after you manually give them a tug, the problem was the blown fuse. Replace the fuse panel cover under the glove box.
    • 6 Test the automatic doors with your remote control. If they do not open or close, the problem is with the remote. Pop the rear cover off of the remote with a screwdriver and replace the battery.

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Power Windows and Power Locks not working.


The power windows an power locks are controlled by a module , DDM - driver door module . As far as the locks locking when you put the vehicle into reverse an unlocking when you put the vehicle into park , that's how there are suppose to work , automatic lock an unlock feature . When you put the vehicle into any gear from park the locks should lock . Did she hit window lockout function ?

The power door lock system consists of the following components:
• The driver door module (DDM)
• The passenger door module (PDM)
• The body control module (BCM)
• The driver information center (DIC)
• The rear door lock switch
• The door lock relay
• The door unlock relay
• The liftgate lock relay--utility vehicles with liftgate only
• The reversible door lock actuators in each of the doors and liftgate
• LOCKS 20A fuse (rear lock/unlock relay supply voltage)
• ECC 10A fuse (liftgate lock relay supply voltage .

Programmable Automatic Door Locks
The automatic door lock feature can be programmed to control the door lock system. The automatic door lock feature is factory programmed to have all doors lock and unlock. For detailed instructions on programming the automatic door locks, refer to Vehicle Personalization in Personalization.
When the automatic door lock feature is programmed to control the door lock system, the driver door module (DDM), passenger door module (PDM) and body control module (BCM) will lock the vehicle doors if the following inputs are true:
• Ignition 1 input is active.
• All door jamb switch inputs are inactive.
• Cargo door or liftgate/liftglass ajar inputs are inactive.
• Transmission is shifted out of park.
This automatic door lock function will only occur once per ignition cycle unless, a door jamb switch input changes state to active and back to inactive. Then the DDM, PDM and BCM will lock all doors again.
Once the automatic door lock feature has locked the doors, the BCM will then unlock all the doors when the transmission is shifted into park.
Driver, Passenger and Cargo Door Lock System Operation
The front power door lock switches are integral components of the driver door module (DDM) and passenger door module (PDM). The switches are two position normally open rocker switches. When placed in either the lock or unlock positions, the switches provide a direct input to the DDM or PDM. The DDM or PDM monitors these inputs and sends a Class 2 message indicating a change in the switch's respective position. Modules which activate the power door lock motors receive the Class 2 message and activate the motor in the appropriate direction to lock or unlock the vehicle's doors and liftgate. The rear door lock switch provides a lock and unlock signal to the body control module (BCM). The BCM upon receipt of a lock or unlock signal will control the rear door lock relays and also send a Class 2 message to the DDM and PDM to perform the appropriate function.
The modules which activate the power lock motors are:
• The DDM (driver door lock actuator).
• The PDM (passenger front door lock actuator).
• The BCM (both rear door lock actuators and cargo door/liftgate).
The DDM and PDM are directly connected to the respective door lock actuator through the door lock motor lock and unlock circuits. Once a door lock or unlock request has been received, the module will supply battery voltage to one side of the actuator and ground the other causing the doors to lock or unlock.
The rear passenger and cargo doors differ slightly in that they use lock and unlock relays. The relays supply and coil sides receive a constant voltage through the battery voltage supply circuit. The normally closed contacts are connected to ground and the control side is connected to the BCM. Once a door lock or unlock request has been received by the BCM, the BCM will ground the control side of the appropriate relay. This energizes the relay and allows voltage to be applied to either the door lock motor lock or unlock circuits. since the other side of the door lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the opposing relay to ground, the doors lock or unlock.

When you open the door, the window drops a little and doesn't come back up until door closes normally, but my problem is when i open the door the window drops a little like its supposed to but instead of...


You may need to store the end position of the windows in the control unit. I would try the following, with the door closed, and the window partway open: Close the windows with the rocker switch ONCE. Then press the front half of the rocker switch again, this will store the end position in the control unit. Good luck!

How do I de-activate the automatic power door locks? 1998 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer Edition. (also - same thing happens to the 1995 Lincoln Town Car). Any Suggestions?


here is the instructions,i had to type it out because the picture was too large.Its actually for my 2000 Ford,give it a try because it might work.

Deactivating/activating the autolock feature
Before following the procedure,make sure that the ignition is OFF and all vehicle doors are closed.You must complete steps 1-7 within 30 seconds or the procedure will have to be repeated.If the procedure needs to be repeated,you must wait 30 seconds.
1.Turn the ignition key to ON.
2.Press the power door UNLOCK control three times.
3.Turn the ignition key form ON to OFF.
4.Press the power door UNLOCK control three times.
5.Turn the ignition back to ON,The horn will chirp.
6.Press the UNLOCK control,then press the lock control.The horn will chirp once if autolock was deactivated or twice(one short and one long chirp)if autolock was activated.
7.Turn the ignition to OFF.The horn will chirp once to confirm the procedure is complete...Page 89 of the owners manual
about the Town car,try it on there as well,it wouldnt hurt it,i just dont have the manual for it.

2005 Subaru Legacy electrical repair question?


The #3 fuse does service both windows and door locks and #2 services a control module that affects door locks. Inspect them closely since the fuse element can crack when blowing and this is much harder to see. Pull a least #3 and plug it back in in case the contact blades have stopped comunicating with the mating connector.

To troubleshoot this effectively, you really need a cheap multimeter and the Haynes service manual for your car, #89101.
The manual has very good electrical diagrams in section 12 so you can logically trace the problem. They are available at most every auto parts chain store and cost ~ $20-25 US.

Saab 93 window not closing fully


1. put key to ON, hold window button down until all the way down, then do same for up, repeat one more time until you hear BEEP. You just calibrated your window. You will need to do this everytime you disconnect your battery.
or...
2. anytime window has power and has automatically gone down, hold the X (window lock button) down while holding up on your window button, again untill you hear BEEP. not sure what this does, but it fixed the problem for me.

I bet it's the wiring harness inside the driver's door. A wire breaks and causes the problem. Happens to a lot of em, mine included.

There is a complete series of instructions in the 2002 owner's manual about how to reprogram the "glass drop". I don't have the manual available at the moment, but I did mine and it was easy. You raise the glass and HOLD the button for 2 - 3 seconds and then drop the glass and do the same routine on the close... or something like that. It';s all there in the manual on the section about the side glass.
