Question about Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

Door Locks Hi, I have an impala 2008 and my locks will not lock/unlock at all. There is always a click sound when I press the lock/unlock button and sometimes they kinda want to lock or unlock but they never really do. If anything they only go 1/4 way. Any suggestions?!! Thanks!!

Sounds like something is blocking the locking mechanism behind the door panel. Has the car ever had the door panels removed to repair, install speakers or been "slim jimmed" ?

Testimonial: "I am not too sure Perry, I got the car like this from a friend and he said that he got it "painted " just to make it shine more. I guess they did remove the door panels?? Also, just yesterday my care started acting up. The panel where you check gas temperature speed and all that is going crazy. I can be parked and the gas thing goes up and down and I'm driving and the speed needle shows my actual speed but then it drops to 0 and goes back to my speed and it does that ever since yesterday and most of the time it won't want to turn on at the first shot I have to try and turn it on after a few times. Any idea? Thanks"

SOURCE: 1998 Jeep Cherokee Internal locks and power locks Not working.

Open the door panels and lube all of your lock mechanisms. They tend to get stuck and it harms the locking motor. After I lube mine up, they freely move. Just spray some lithium grease and manually lock and unlock the door with the rocker until it moves very easily. You'll probably have to do this once a year like I do.

SOURCE: Power door locks going crazy

One of your door lock inside switches are bad.Find the one that doesn't feel right when you push it in either lock or unlock.The internal spring is broke causing the lock relay to keep try to lock or unlock until it gets hot & protects.

SOURCE: 2001 Chevrolet Impala Door Locks Suddenly Quit Working

Passenger side of the fender under the hood - check the fuse relay box - about $12.00 a piece - they do go bad from time to time.
exchange the power lock relay with another one and test the locks.
then put the relay back and go to the autostore.

2008 Chevy Impala LTZ: car wont lock or unlock with the power lock/unlock buttons on the remote or car door. It makes a clicking sound though when I attempt to. Is this a blown fuse? Or something else


Where do you here the clicking sound ? in the door , behind instrument panel ? I don't think a blown fuse would do this , possibly a relay ! do you know what a relay is ? This is Chevy factory service information !
Door Lock Operation
When the body control module (BCM) detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the lock position, it switches the door lock actuator lock control circuit to voltage. Since the lock actuator unlock control circuits are at ground potential within the BCM, the door lock actuator motors transition to the lock position.
There are three pcb relays integrated into the instrument panel fuse box ( non replaceable ) door unlock pcb relay drivers door -door unlock pcb relay an door lock pcb relay ! The BCM controls these relays ! Do you know what a BCM is ?
Circuit/System Description
The DR/LCK fuse supplies battery positive voltage to the I/P fuse block for the door lock system. The body control module (BCM) supplies and monitors a reference voltage to the door lock switch through the door lock switch lock/unlock signal circuit. The door lock switch also receives a constant ground source. If a door lock switch is placed in the lock position or unlock position, the reference voltage is taken directly to ground and the BCM detects the voltage drop on the signal circuit.
The BCM, upon receipt of a door lock switch lock or unlock signal, will switch the appropriate door lock actuator control circuits to battery positive voltage. The opposing side of the door lock actuators are connected to ground internally within the BCM through the other door lock actuator control circuit and the doors will lock or unlock appropriately.
With out have a factory GM tech 2 scan tool ,It would be best if you took this to a Chevy dealer . The first part of diagnosing this problem is to hook up a scan tool !

Rear door locks do not work with electric control buttons


POSSIBLE THAT THE DOOR LOCK ACTUATORS ARE NOT WORKING OR MAYBE A WIRE IS BROKEN TO THE REAR DOOR LOCKS

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 !
