SOURCE: Headlights light up when unlock

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

The door actuators may be weak that's why the lock trips. If it's weak or worn out they tend not to work at any given time. I strongly suggest that you have the door lock actuators checked and replaced if necessary. Please keep me posted on the progress.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have 2 problems with my 2006 plate mitsubishi colt 1.1. Firstly the engine light just came on and I was wondering what could cause it and secondly the remote central locking only unlocks the passenger...


The check engine light is a seperate issue from the inop. drivers door lock.A check engine light comes on after the PCM recognizes an input from any of the engines sensors 3 Key cycles or reading cycles while it is monitoring engines sensors.It could be as simple as an oxy.sensor out of spec to a low fuel tank pressure reading when you forget to put the gas cap back on after filling your tank.You need to have the car "scanned" for diagnostic trouble codes for the answer to the Check engine light". As for the inop. drivers door lock,it sounds like the lock solenoid stopped working and needs a replacement.Dealer,repair shop,or auto parts store can supply that fix.

On the sceen to the radio of my 1998 Chevolet Venture it says "LOC" what does that mean?? I just bought the van and it wont start at all and thats they only thing that is wrong with it. Please...


Hi , LOC means radio is locked....1. You can retrieve a set of factory numbers in the radio that enable you to get a unlock code . If it says INOP you will have to leave the key in the ON position or let the car run for at least an hour before you attempt any unlock procedure .INOP means a secondary theft lock due to too many attempts to unlock radio........2. look at the face of your radio and hold down the preset buttons 1 and 4 or 2 and 3 ( depending on year and model , if 1+4 don't work use 2+3, ) for about 10 seconds or until a set of 2 or 3 numbers come up on the display. Write these numbers down.......3. Next press the AM/FM button, a new set of numbers will now show. Write these numbers down. You will then need to call an 1-800 no. with the numbers you have written down to get the unlock code. Try calling a GM dealer and ask them to do it for you, or some sites on internet will get for you for a fee.....4. Once you have the unlock code enter it by pressing the MIN button until display shows the last 2 digits of the unlock code, then press the HR button until the first 2 digits of of unlock code are shown. Then press the AM/FM button to enter the code. The radio will now display SEC and normal function is restored.

Hazard button and door lock button not working 325i 02


Your vehicle only has fuses behind the glove box. But since your central lock button is also inop. The your solution is to replace the switch assembly, it comes with both the hazard switch and the lock/unlock button. The removal of the switch assembly is pretty simple. it just pops up with some plastic body tool to pry on it.

Rear side windows


This may be just a case of inadvertently hitting the window lock out n th driver door window switch by mistake. Check that first. Here's some background on window operation

Principles of Operation
The driver power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the master window/door lock/unlock switch (and its integrated "auto down" module). Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The driver power window regulator motor is a reversible motor that is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The passenger power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the passenger power window switch and can also be controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The passenger power window regulator motor is a reversible motor, which is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The power rear quarter glass is also directly controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. The power rear quarter glass power latches also utilize reversible motors. The power rear quarter glass power latches are operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to open the window, and then reversing polarity on those same leads to close the window.
