    Nor sure if the door locks thing has anything to do with why my car won't start. I was out shopping, drove 50 miles or so and the car was running fine. I come out from the store and she wouldn't start. Any ideas???

It sounds like the door lock actuator in that door is malfunctioning, has anyone been in that door panel? If the actuator rod gets bent it can cause this to happen. Remove the door panel and either replace the actuator, straighten the rod or just unplug it and the rest of the doors should continue to work.

You will probably need to replace the power door lock actuator.

Here's a link to one similar to yours.

You can probably get a used one from a salvage yard.

Grinding noise when doors lock/unlock


Well the motor that locks the door is either breaking or either the wire or some part that moves is rubbing on something else. Take off the inner door panel and find the Exact location of the noise and you can replace the part. The door panel will be held on with screws and removable tabs that should pop out. Let me know if you get stuck. the parts can be bought at a dealer or gotten from a salvage yard

check www.car-parts.com for the nearest salvage yard if you want to go that route

There is a control module in each door with connectors. I have already had one where the wiring in the connector was bad. This takes some troubleshooting, but sometimes moving things around while trying to run the windows will should you where the loose connection is.

That sound is going to be your door lock motors wearing out. I would suggest getting them replaced pretty quickly as they will soon stop locking altogether. It's not cheap, but it isn't horribly expensive either.

Electric door locks only work from driver door


hi, does the drivers door unlock and lock all the other doors if it does then you may find that a clip or connecting bar has come off the passenger door lock, you would need to take the door panel off to check,

If how ever the passenger door dont lock and unlock via the drivers door then you would need to buy a new central locking motor for the passenger door..

Your best option would be to remove the passenger side door panel and get someone to lock and unlock the drivers door whilst you look at the passenger side and have a look to see what parts are moving this should then give you a good idea of the parts that could be damaged
