Remove the door panel and check the linkage from lock cylinder to the latch. There are plastic clips that can break.

SOURCE: I have a 1997 Dodge Ram Picup. The power locks on

Hello, the first thing we need to inspect is the encased wires the run from the door jam to the door. If you open the drivers door, you will see a black wrap plastic sleeve. Inside that sleeve the wire are going through. You will need to open the sleeve up, sometimes there is a **** already in it. Look at each wire to see if there is a break in it or you may find some of the already broken off. This issue is often found the problem, and most makes and models that use this type of wire routing has the same issues. The noise you are hearing possibly from a broken wire(s) might be a relay that is not getting fully grounded, causing this noise. Hope this helps you isolate you concern. Craig

My door locks won't work. They aren't working with the remote or the switch in the car. I can manually push them down, but even using the key in the door only unlocks the driver side.

In drivers side is damaged the driving motor for central doors locking. When is not works other doors also do not work! Try to unlock the car from the passenger side and you will see that the door is open all outside the driver's door! So you know that there is a problem!

Power lock and dome light does not come on when door is opened.

I had the same problem with my 2005 dodge ram 3500 and found the wires were being pinched that run through the rubber boot on my right rear door. I had this fixed by dodge but there splice didn't last, so I took some 16ga wire and spliced it into the wire that operates the power door lock on that side and it fixed the problem. Dodge service shop did a sad job of splicing the wires back together by twisting the wires together and tape and wire broke.

Door lock problem

Most probably the lock actuator is frozen in down position. it could be your lock cylinder, but the actuator is the most common problem. You have to remove the inner trim panel to access it.
