Question about 1999 Chevrolet Astro

2 Answers

I have a 1998 Chevy Astro Van. The two front door locks will not work in anyway. The key will not turn them. The inside manual lock button will not move. The electric lock button locks and unlocks all other doors but will not unlock the front doors. I have tried disconnecting the battery for several minutes to no avail.

Disconnecting the battery can make even more problems. Check the fuses, the front doors may be on a separate circuit.

SOURCE: remote lock for back doors and rear tail gate door

Actually I found a solution. I remove the lock relay form the fuse panel and placed it back in place. I did not replace it. After doing this they worked. I probably need to replace the relay at some point, but for now that solved the problem. It was hard for me to believe that there is a separate relay for the lock and unlock circuit.

SOURCE: Remote Door Lock/Unlock will not work.

At first look, I would have guessed that your battery in the door opener was dead, but that is not the case. I suggest driving to a nearby Chevy dealer and ask one of the salesman if he/she can help. They have always been helpful to me. If not try another one as they are in business to sell not only cars, but service also. They will be your best bet to fixing it. :D

SOURCE: Driver and Passenger auto door locks are inop.

Sounds like bad wiring, or bad door lock actuators. Check for power while locking/unlocking the doors.

How do i reset the alarm on a1998 plymouth grandvoyger grand touring van


Most times you can reset the alarm by locking and unlocking the driver's door with the key.
To prevent the alarm from being turned on, try to not use the key to lock the van. Use the inside door locks instead.

My front door will not close because latch has locked in place, help 1999 Chevy astro van


You should be able to open it with a large screw driver. Simply put the screw driver in the hole where the latch would go and pull the handle to open the door. With the handle in the open position pull the screw driver toward the inside of the van and the latch should open right up. Then close the door. Hope this helps.

I locked the keys into my 1998 chevy astro van. is there a electronic way to short circuit the locking mechanism to get it to open?


no, you need a wooden wedge and a stiff wire. stuff the wedge between the door and doorframe at the top of the window to get enough of a gap to manuver the wire to unlock the doors. be gentle with the wedge, the less you need to pry the door the better.

or you could call your local locksmith/wrecker :)
