Check for a blown fuse in the fuse panel first. Then check the users manual for process to re-sync security fob to the car. Many shops use a 'maintainer' battery to keep the car powered up when removing the main battery for long periods of time to avoid these kinds of problems with radios and security systems. If you totally remove power for several minutes, the car 'forgets' many of its settings for those things.

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.

Power door lock on chevy equinox does not work on one door how can it be fixed


I had the same problem but on the passenger side door. The wire harness on the passenger side had broken wires. Purple wire was for the lock and thicker blue and darker grey was power for the windows. I used butt connectors to repair and it worked like a charm. Area was tight to work in between vehicle frame and door. Was easier to remove door panel and disconnect harness at vehicle frame and pull harness through door to complete the repair.

2009 GMC Envoy - power door locks, power windows, fuel gauge not working, dome light isn't working


Do you know anything about automotive electronic's ? computer controlled systems ? There is electronic control modules in side the doors of your vehicle that control the operation of the windows an lock's , plus the instrument cluster is a module too . Your vehicle has about 10 different control modules and thet are all hooked on a serial data communication network ,to share info. The fuel tank sending unit in the gas tank is wired to the PCM - engine computer , The PCM sends fuel level info to the gauge in the instrument cluster on this serial data network . Your best bet ,take an have the vehicle checked out by a qualified repair shop .
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
• Driver Door Module (DDM)
• Passenger Door Module (PDM)
• Liftgate Module (LGM)
• Door lock relay
• Door unlock relay
• Body Control Module (BCM)
• Reversible door lock actuators in each of the doors
• LR/RR LOCKS 10A fuse (relay supply voltage)
• Door lock switches in driver and passenger doors (switches are integral components to the DDM and PDM)

Power Door Lock Operation
The power door lock switches are integral components of the DDM and 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 modules which activate the power lock motors are:
• DDM (driver door lock actuator).
• PDM (passenger front door lock actuator).
• BCM (both rear door lock actuators).
• LGM (liftgate door lock actuator).
The DDM, PDM and LGM 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 modules probably have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored , these would point a auto tech in a positive diagnostic direction .

Driver's side window will not work. Door locks work.


My mechanic took out the panel on the driver side control because my right rear passenger window would not work after disconnecting the battery (but the control on the passenger rear door works) and when he put it back, it worked..it's possible it's just a loose wiring connection. My car is a 2006 Lexus RX330 with 58K miles on it.

1999 cadillac seville sts driver side master control pannel dead


The same circuit breaker feeds the driver door as well as the passengers doors . The wires inside the rubber boot from the body to the door are probably broke ,power or ground wire .Or the door module is bad . Are your familiar with electronic control modules ? The door functions ,windows , lock's , memory etc... are controlled by DDM - driver door module .
Door Control System Operation
This vehicle has five modules capable of performing door system control functions. Vehicle door system components (windows, locks, mirrors, etc.) are controlled directly by these modules. There is a door module located inside of each vehicle door:
• Driver Door Module
• Passenger Door Module
• LH Rear Door Module (LRDM)
• RH Rear Door Module (RRDM)
• LH Front Power Window Switch
Simple Bus Interface (SBI)
Each Door Module communicates with the other Door Modules on the SBI. The driver door module is the only Door Module that is capable of communicating over the Class 2 Data Line as well as the SBI.
Driver Door Module
The driver door module directly controls the LH Front door lock actuator, power window motor and the outside rear view mirror. The driver door module sends and receives messages received from the LH Front Power Window Switch to the passenger door module, LRDM and RRDM modules over the Simple Bus Interface (SBI) line. Also, the driver door module sends and receives message from other vehicle system modules via the Class 2 Data Line.
Pulling the door panel off an checking B+ voltage and ground for the module would be good for you to do , since you probably don't have a $6,000 factory Tech 2 scan tool to see if the DDM is communicating .
The driver door module has two main power feeds (high and low current), and two main grounds. The low power feed (battery 1) is used to provide power for the driver door module's logic and internal driver operation. The high power feed (battery 2) is used to provide power for systems that draw higher amounts of current (motors, lights, etc.). Operating current at the driver door module's battery should not exceed 3.0 amperes at battery 1, and 7.5 amperes (for 2 seconds) at battery 2 while the driver door module is awake, and 2.5 milliamps when the driver door module is asleep. For most driver door module functions, the driver door module will operate properly with a system voltage of 9.0-16.0 volts. If system voltages exceed 16.0 volts the driver door module will provide protection by disabling certain functions that may damage due to higher than normal system voltages.

What kind of manual do you have ? The info above is from a factory repair manual .
The fuse's ,circuit breaker for the door module are located in the rear fuse box , not under hood . PWR WDO circuit breaker 30 amp. , DRVMDL fuse 10 amp. The rear fuse box is located under the back seat . Watch this video ,different type vehicle but probably the same problem .

Door locks


Pls explain if you have electric door locks or not. A seized solenoid (if you do) will preevnt the latch from working...Regardless of whether you do or not, anything wrong with the alternator will give not you door lock issues. You problem is purely mechanical. The electronic function (option) just assists the mechanical (non-powered) door locks. The doors should work; (the lock/unlock/open/close) even with the battery disconnected, using the manual controls.
