The trunk lock motor is defective, it is sold as a unit if still available, not very expensive.

2002 ford escape just stoped running


Could be your electric fuel pump in gas tank. you can check it by turning the key on and take gas cap off and have someone to check to see if their is a noise saying the fuel pump is working. someone has to stand by where you put gas in your car and put their ear to the hole an listen when you turn key on, do not start the car just turn the key on and if they hear a noise like a pump running then your electric fuel pump is okay, but if don't hear a noise then your electric fuel pump is not working. it is hard to explain about the noise you will hear, but as long as they hear something when you turn key on and their ear is at the opening they will know what I am talking about. I've done 4 electric fuel pumps in gas tanks on different vehicles. good luck ! would like to know if you could hear the pump running when you turned the key on with the gas cap off.

My 2003 Lincoln Navigator front passenger door lock does not raise or lower using lock/unlock switch in car or on keyless entry. I hear a "grinding"sound when I try to open with the unlock...


That noise is due to a failed door lock actuator. This is the electrical device located behind the door panel that is responsible for popping the lock when you press the button. Door lock actuator replacement will eliminate the noise and bring it back to normal operation.

I have electric locks on my 2000 ford ranger, i get the locking and unlocking noise but they won't lock or unlock.by chance is there a relay switch or fuse? I also have key remote and it don't do...


if you can hear the locking mechanism "noise" then it's not the fuses or relays or motors, its the clip that hooks on the bar that pops up or pulls out the lock. take apart door panel to see the pieces. If they're loose hook it back up if broken start shopping

Hatchback doesn't unlock on 06 Kia sportqge. Hatchback window does open but the whole hatchback doesn't open. Not sure if it is electronic or mechanical problem


Hi

Can you hear the motor working inside the tailgate for the central locking when you press the eky fob lock / unlock button? if you can then the motor is fine and most likely the mechanism is jammed up. try pushing the tailgate inwaqrds while using the keyfob, this can often take the pressure off the mechanism. if you cannot hear the electric motor in the hatch then it has most likely failed,you should be able to get into the back and remove the trim to get the hatch open.

Get back to me once you have tested for the motor noise and I will send more info

Regards

Dan

Power locks don't lock or unlock hear noise under dash near glove box i was wondering if relay switch is no good.hear clicking noise in relay, when trying to unlock or lock doors


if the relay is clicking,its most likely working,sounds like signal from relay is not getting back to doors to unlock doors,I would check for damaged wiring at pivot point of door(hinge) area,all the wiring goes through a large rubber accordion looking tube,pull back one side of rubber and inspect wiring for damage

98 chev blazer wont start or make any noises...


Listen for a click from under the steering column when you turn the key on. If you hear no electrical click then your ignition switch could be bad. If you hear an electrical click the you starter soleniod is bad.
