Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

1997 Chevy S-10 Doors intermittantly lock and unlock uncommanded.

This ''ghost'' locking and unlocking is spuratic and will stop when the power accessories 20 amp breaker is pulled. I did try disconnecting the door switches thinking there might be a short but this did not stop the problem...could this be the grounding issue on the relay, relay going bad, or is there a short in the wiring?

    I found the relay (six pin) under the glove box on the passenger side. Replaced it and the problem still continued. I don't think it is the power accessory breaker (although it does make a clicking noise when the switches are used).

  • cool6664 May 09, 2009

    Next stop is to look for a shorted wire maybe in the door jam.

  • cool6664 May 09, 2009

    Good idea...however this model does not have that function...but it does have a keyless entry system that could be causing the problem. I do not know where the relay or conrol circut for that is...nothing in the Haynes manual.

    Found the remote keless entry module under the dash on the drivers side...right behind the scan tool connection point. Disconnected and the intermittant problem stopped but now the driver door will not fuction electrically. the relays in the moduale are chattering when it is plugged in. Will see if the dealer has replacement module.

Try reprograming the auto locking feature,you will need the owners manual for instructions to do it,you should be able to turn off the auto-locking part of it,like when you put it in gear and the doors automatically lock.

When I use my remote starter & door lock/unlock and the lock/unlock button in the car, it does not lock or unlock both back doors. It does start the car, opens the trunk, and lock & unlock both...


The rear doors probably dont come w accuators in them. Meaning that the rear doors alot of times don't have power options. If you are certain that your rear doors have factory power locks then I would say it's a wire somewhere...did you try a double click of the unlock button. My two door chevy truck unlocks the driver door with one click and the pass door requires a double click. Hope this helps !

I cannot use the Automatic Locks and I can't find the fuse for them either, nor can I find if there is a breaker! HELP PLEASE!


It is a circuit breaker, in the fusebox at the left side of the dash it is a 20 amp for a 2-door, & a 30 amp for the 4-door. When you remove it use a test light there should be power on one side weather the key is on or off. If there is no power on either side, there may be a blown maxi-fuse in the fuse relay box under the hood. It can be tested with a fuse tester, or pull it out a & look at it.

1990 Toyota Camry Fuse box cover missing on driver's side


Chilton's Manual 1983-92 is almost useless.. says to check the covers. With that many items seeming to be electrical (& likely fuse) related, I think I'd buy a pack of fuses & replace all of the bad ones, & keep some spares around. ALTHOUGH... for the window defogger, environmental control sys., power door locks,power tailgate lock, sunroof & shoulder belt it DOES say to check the circuit breaker in the driver's side (or passenger side) kick panel with the fuses.
There is a reset hole (might try a pulled open paper clip... amazing how these can come in handy & how cheap these are! Not having a silly paper clip can be a real pain! Try keeping a few in the glove box! ) If it re-trips immediately. Use an ohm meter to check both terminals of the breaker. Chilton's says if not "as specified, replace the circuit breaker."

To change the breaker, turn the key off, disconnect the neg (-) battery cable, unlock the circuit breaker stopper, then pull it from the socket.replace (do same in reverse to re-install, making sure you have the same amp breaker as the one you pulled, if you need to replace it.)
*NOTE: I'd suggest checking a junk yard for a cover plate for your fuse box. It might save you a big hassle over a little thing on the road in the future. (Or at least keep the owner's manual in the dash) Having the cover on can keep moisture, dirt, etc. out of your fuse box, so I'd see if you can find one in a junk yard... just be sure same engine, year etc. (or if it fits & is a different config. of fuss, I'd copy the one (re-size if necessary) the schematic from the owner's manual, laminate it (a lot of copy shops can do this for you), the adhere it to the inside over the incorrect diagram. That way you'll know what fuse goes to what & there should be a puller tool & space for extra fuses in there (or yo can put them in the glove box.)
Best of luck & Ty for sharing where the actual schematic is & what fuses go where! Mine's out in the car & I'll have to book mark it, in case I ever need it!
