Question about 2012 Kia Sorento

Open Question

Why do the door locks on my 2012 Kia Sorento click repeatedly when I put the vehicle in gear?

This just started this week. I'll turn on the ignition, and put the vehicle in reverse or drive. The door locks will go click-click-click-click, although I don't see the latches move. Also, tonight I couldn't get all four doors to lock with the key fob button, don't know if that's related. EDIT: My left rear passenger door won't lock, I discovered today. That's probably the cause of the clicking, the system trying to lock it and failing. How can I fix it? TIA for info. 2ND EDIT: And now it works normally. Still, any info is appreciated, in case it fritzes out again.

Back passenger power window stopped working


I can help with a little testing. On the hinge side of rear passenger door, should be a wiring harness. Probably has a protective rubber boot covering, pull the covering back far enough to get at wire colors in the diagram. One wire is voltage the other is ground depending if the window is going up or down. Use a test lite to check. Key on, I would think.Your front passenger window works ok? If the wires check out good for voltage and ground, could be something wrong with window motor?

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Power Windows and Power Locks not working.


The power windows an power locks are controlled by a module , DDM - driver door module . As far as the locks locking when you put the vehicle into reverse an unlocking when you put the vehicle into park , that's how there are suppose to work , automatic lock an unlock feature . When you put the vehicle into any gear from park the locks should lock . Did she hit window lockout function ?

The power door lock system consists of the following components:
• The driver door module (DDM)
• The passenger door module (PDM)
• The body control module (BCM)
• The driver information center (DIC)
• The rear door lock switch
• The door lock relay
• The door unlock relay
• The liftgate lock relay--utility vehicles with liftgate only
• The reversible door lock actuators in each of the doors and liftgate
• LOCKS 20A fuse (rear lock/unlock relay supply voltage)
• ECC 10A fuse (liftgate lock relay supply voltage .

Programmable Automatic Door Locks
The automatic door lock feature can be programmed to control the door lock system. The automatic door lock feature is factory programmed to have all doors lock and unlock. For detailed instructions on programming the automatic door locks, refer to Vehicle Personalization in Personalization.
When the automatic door lock feature is programmed to control the door lock system, the driver door module (DDM), passenger door module (PDM) and body control module (BCM) will lock the vehicle doors if the following inputs are true:
• Ignition 1 input is active.
• All door jamb switch inputs are inactive.
• Cargo door or liftgate/liftglass ajar inputs are inactive.
• Transmission is shifted out of park.
This automatic door lock function will only occur once per ignition cycle unless, a door jamb switch input changes state to active and back to inactive. Then the DDM, PDM and BCM will lock all doors again.
Once the automatic door lock feature has locked the doors, the BCM will then unlock all the doors when the transmission is shifted into park.
Driver, Passenger and Cargo Door Lock System Operation
The front power door lock switches are integral components of the driver door module (DDM) and passenger door module (PDM). The switches are two position normally open rocker switches. When placed in either the lock or unlock positions, the switches provide a direct input to the DDM or PDM. The DDM or PDM monitors these inputs and sends a Class 2 message indicating a change in the switch's respective position. Modules which activate the power door lock motors receive the Class 2 message and activate the motor in the appropriate direction to lock or unlock the vehicle's doors and liftgate. The rear door lock switch provides a lock and unlock signal to the body control module (BCM). The BCM upon receipt of a lock or unlock signal will control the rear door lock relays and also send a Class 2 message to the DDM and PDM to perform the appropriate function.
The modules which activate the power lock motors are:
• The DDM (driver door lock actuator).
• The PDM (passenger front door lock actuator).
• The BCM (both rear door lock actuators and cargo door/liftgate).
The DDM and PDM are directly connected to the respective door lock actuator through the door lock motor lock and unlock circuits. Once a door lock or unlock request has been received, the module will supply battery voltage to one side of the actuator and ground the other causing the doors to lock or unlock.
The rear passenger and cargo doors differ slightly in that they use lock and unlock relays. The relays supply and coil sides receive a constant voltage through the battery voltage supply circuit. The normally closed contacts are connected to ground and the control side is connected to the BCM. Once a door lock or unlock request has been received by the BCM, the BCM will ground the control side of the appropriate relay. This energizes the relay and allows voltage to be applied to either the door lock motor lock or unlock circuits. since the other side of the door lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the opposing relay to ground, the doors lock or unlock.

Key stuck in ingnition


If your battery goes dead, the ignition locks the key in ignition switch. You put a new battery in and you'll be able to remove the key
your anti theft system may be enabled. Did you play with the power door locks before starting
Under the ign lock assbly there is a small plastic plug... pop the plug out and stick a small screw driver in...u should imediately feel a spring load button in there. Push up with the screw driver and turn key back, it will come out.

I believe that the vehicle antitheft is tied into the drivers door lock. Maybe try disconnecting the battery for 2 minutes.

Power locks don't engage when driving


this is form the owners manual, page 19:

The Automatic Door Locks can be enabled or disabled by
performing the following procedure:

1. Close all doors and place the key in the ignition
switch.

2. Cycle the ignition switch ON/OFF four times ending
in the OFF position. (do not start the engine)

3. Within 10 seconds of the final cycle, press the interior
driver’s door lock switch to the LOCK position.

4. A single chime will sound to signify that you have
successfully completed the programming.

You can turn the feature back on by repeating the above
mentioned procedure or by performing the procedure in
the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), Customer
Programmable Features section on vehicles so
equipped.

Auto door locks don't work, key stuck in Ignition


If the key is not coming out of the switch, it may be off, but you haven't turned it far enough back that final click to remove the key. Some have a button you have to depress to get the key switch to turn back that final click. That's it.

Grand Cherokee Ltd, '96 - serious electrics issue


Hello there. I am going to take a stab at this issue you have. First off make sure that the remotes have fresh batteries. You can take them to any autozone and have them checked to make sure they are working correctly as well. But start with new batteries in the remotes. As for the door locks working and not working might be a bigger pain in the bottom. My first option would be to have the ignition sensor tested. I would be will to bet it is bad. Its a little sensor that is supposed to detect when the ignition is on and the vehicle is put into drive to lock the doors. Its a built in answer to car jacking. But if the sensor is lose or malfuctioning then it can cause the system to go nuts. If that does not work then I am willing to bet you have a short somewhere in the vehicle security settings. I would try to find a way to bypass the chrysler sercurity system and see if that fixes your problems. I am willing to bet it will.
