Question about 1999 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Chevy Venture and the drivers side passenger door is locked and won't unlock. Before this happened the power doors wouldn't open unless manually opened. I tried removing the fuse, it was good and still nothing.

SOURCE: have a 2002 chevy suburban, liftgate window will not open

Sounds like you have a wiring problem to your liftgate. Check the wires where they come out of the body, and go into the liftgate. If they are good, check fuses, or possibly a module.

SOURCE: Venture van power door problem

It sounds as though one of the proximity sensors is faulty. Also try giving the tracks for the door a good shot of white spray lithium grease. The door may be binding enough so that the emergency reverse is kicking in.

SOURCE: neither driver or passenger windows work, also

Power locks are not supposed to lock while driver's door is open to avoid locking yourself out.
The other problems seem to be connected to fuses. If you cannot fix it yourself, take the car to the shop.

SOURCE: 2004 Chevy Venture Passenger side sliding door

It sounds like you've got a broken wire on the drivers side door. Usually this occurs at the flex point of the wiring harness. Peel back the outer covering carefully exposing the wires inside. Repair any broken or those about to break. Solder & retape or shrink rap with heat gun.Hope this helps. Good luck!

Do you know how to use a wiring diagram along with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter to test electrical circuit's ? Plus ,do you know what a BCM - body control module is ? The driver an passanger door lock switch's are just inputs to the BCM , low voltage inputs. The park neutral switch is also an input to the BCM ,that part is working - taking out of park an into park - locks & an unlocks the doors . The door switches inputs are missing ,probably . Bad ground at G302 or open in wiring . Check the flex boot from the body to the doors - Wire's like to break inside . Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free-tsb Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on body & accesories ,then under subsystem click on power door locks .
With just the switches not working i wouldn't think that the BCM was the problem , but you never know . Did you disconnect the battery to clean the corrosion ? Sometimes disconnecting batteries can cause electronic modules to act up ,if you know what i mean .

Both Power Locks Lock But Wont Unlock. Remote will unlock the doors


If the remote key fob locks and unlocks the doors then the problem is more than likely the power lock switches, this is a common problem on the Venture Van.

Power door lock on chevy equinox does not work on one door how can it be fixed


I had the same problem but on the passenger side door. The wire harness on the passenger side had broken wires. Purple wire was for the lock and thicker blue and darker grey was power for the windows. I used butt connectors to repair and it worked like a charm. Area was tight to work in between vehicle frame and door. Was easier to remove door panel and disconnect harness at vehicle frame and pull harness through door to complete the repair.

Do the power windows work ? DDM - driver door module fuse 15 amp - location is the instrument panel fuse box , plus LT DR circuit breaker 25 amp. Circuit breakers rarely go bad . The power locks are controlled by electronic's .The passenger side has another power supply ,that's why they still work .
Door Lock System Components
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
• The driver door switch (DDS)
• The passenger door switch (PDS)
• The body control module (BCM)
• The driver information center (DIC)
• The rear door lock/unlock relay (LBEC)
• The reversible door lock actuators in each of the doors and liftgate

The front power door lock switches are integral components of the driver door module (DDS) and passenger door module (PDS). The switches are 2 position normally open rocker switches. When placed in either the lock or unlock positions, the switches provide a direct input to the DDS or PDS. The DDS or PDS monitors these inputs and sends a LAN message indicating a change in the switch's respective position. Modules which activate the power door lock motors receive the LAN 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/unlock relay and also send a LAN message to the DDS and PDS to perform the appropriate function.
The modules which activate the power lock motors are:
• The DDS (driver door lock actuator)
• The PDS (passenger front door lock actuator)
• The BCM (both rear door lock actuators and cargo door/liftgate)
The DDS and PDS 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 endgate doors are controlled by the BCM through the rear door lock/unlock relay which is incorporated onto the printed circuit board in the LH BEC. The BCM controls the unlock relay by providing ground to energize the coil and controls the lock relay by providing battery voltage to energize the relay coil. The energized 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.

It's possible you have broken wire or wires inside the flex boot from the body of the vehicle to the driver's door . This happens a lot .

Neither driver or passenger windows work, also power locks will not unlock manually(with switch), also power locks will not lock manually if the drivers side door is open.
