This can be a possible issue with the part commonly called the BCM or Body Control Module. The operation of the locks is you guessed it computer controlled. I suggest you see the dealer and have the BCM scanned with a special tool to see what is going on.

Pull the door panel & replace the electronic lock solenoid.
Not easy, but this is what you need to do.

Not to insult your intelligence or anything, but I had the same problem, and fixed it by replacing fuse #13. It was caused by a short in my cigarrette lighter. Good Luck!

SOURCE: VW Polo 2000 1.4 16V Blowing fuse for Central locking / windows

car electrics are a nightmare. the car lights up when a door is open i presume. and by bypassing the central locking. the electric computer says there is a fault. and will not start. that i think is programed in. best thing to do is. go to phone VW dealer ask about diagnostic test without repair. about £35 then fix it yourself. they garentee it right I think. the dealers have come into line better with that kind of thing phone and ask anyway.

SOURCE: Camry 1996 automatic power lock doen't work, but windows work.

if you can here relays when unlocking/locking check for power at door lock actuators inside doors, if you have power on lock/unlock and good earth from connector actuators are faulty.
if no power on test light when operating check output from central door lock module while operating, none coming out of module then it might need replacing.
check 30Amp power fuse for main relay under bonnet (which goes to pin 8 white/blue on module)and 10Amp gauge fuse in cab(pin 1 blue/red on module),pin 15 is also power when relay is on(red/blue) with test light, and module/ actuators.
check outputs from module pin 3 & 4
that go to door locks

SOURCE: Driver side door won't lock electronically

very common problem is the door lock actuator. i would recommend replace that. a good idea also would be to remove the door panel and check all the rods that connect to the assembly and make sure one didnt pop off.

Park neutral safety switch could be bad , also the shift interlock safety system .
Shift Interlock System A brake/shifter interlock system consists of the following:
  • ignition switch (11572)
  • brake pedal stoplight switch (13480)
  • brake shift interlock module
  • brake shift interlock solenoid assembly (attached to key interlock assembly)
  • necessary wiring
On floor-shift vehicles, the ignition/shifter interlock cable (3F719):
  • locks the floor shift transaxle range selector lever in the PARK position when the ignition switch is in the LOCK position.
  • requires the floor shift transaxle range selector lever to be in the PARK position to turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.
Condition Possible Source Action
  • Shift Interlock System Does Not Release or Lock Properly
  • Circuitry open/shorted.
  • Blown fuse.
  • Damaged stoplight switch.

97 jeep chngd driver auto locks, circut board melted few,clickn again. Sputters at stops.thnkn speed sensor,timing,neutral safety. recently changed govern,Any ideas .

now i understand you.
the left door motor is shorted

the BCM (body brain)
is programmed to send autolock commands on the CCD-NEtwork (a car network is this)
over 15mph, (on mine i have them turned off)2010.
the BCM runs a program. (computer instructions)
1: send auto lock command out. to all controllers.
2: read back status of all locks (lock switches)
3: if any switch fails jump to 1 and repeat
its safety feature for kids. and is maniacal.

the book says, you cant turn off the 15mph autolock
only the dealer can with a DRB tool. unlike mine.

what ID do, after seeing all wires ok in that door.
id remove the motor lock, and bench test it.
using a 12vdc battery or power pack.
we use a pack. that is current limited,
so i connect it and it shows motor is shorted
or jammed, its no good.
the chapter 8P , states exactly that .
it does not show normal motor currents,in amps.
my guess, 2 to 3 amps. or even less.
for sure not 15.
the motor shorted will trip the JB breaker #2 if over 30amps, but at that level, other things tend to melt.
its there to stop a fire only

that is it.

so forget speed sensors.! that is the part you confused me with, (was thinking car cant shift right)
that 15mph is a hard rule. it coded into the BCM
brain. on mine i can bypass this rule but you cant.
unless your operators guide says else wise
I sure dont have a 98 ORP guide,here.
open yours and read LOCKS.

First have the differential(rear) and the transfer case(front) checked for oil/fluid. Also check for leaks there(seals). other problems could be electrical.

2000 chevrolet blazer 4x4 fuse keeps blowing

Don't know the vehicle specifically, but if you've replaced all the components that are run from this fuse then the only thing left is the wiring loom itself. Maybe some foreign object (rock or stick) has damaged the wiring and the wire in question is shorting to earth somewhere in the loom. To check this all you need to do is work backwards from the furthest point. That is disconnect the actuator on the transfer case and turn the switch on. Then disconnect the sensors and turn the switch on, disconnect the actuator on the front diff and turn the switch on. If after everything is disconnected the fuse still blows, then it MUST be the wiring loom. Have you done any " home handyman" wiring under the dash? maybe you nicked a wire by accident? It's a fiddly process, but give it time and you'll get there.

Check your fuses, if that does not work, You may have to replace the "Power Door lock Actuator Motor."
It would cost you about $50.00 to $90.00 for actuator. However, you can go to ebay and type Universal Power Door lock Actuator.
It will cost you about $6.00 to $12.00 for the Actuator.
If you choose to replace the original Actuator, it will cost you a pretty penny, however, if you try the Universal Power Door Actuator it is easier to install than the original.
You may have to drill a hole in the door inside panel to secure it in place. You are going to have to connect the Universal Actuator wires. Disconnect the wire connection closer to the middle of the door and connect the Universal Actuator to the disconnected wires. you are going to have to peel the old disconnected wires so you can atach the new Universal Actuator wires to the peeled wires. You are going tohave to remove the inside door panel to perform this operation. You may want to do this yourself.

it could be a shoted wire to ground going to the door lock actuators or a bad door lock actuator.

Disconnect all door lock actuators & see what happens, If ok, connect one at a time and see which one acts up.

Overnight the power doors don't work, they also do not lock when you put it in drive and the automatic sliding door no longer works


1.- Check power locks relay and fuse
2.- Check switch wires for loose connection and wire damage.
3.- Check switch for continuity.
4.- Remove door panel(s) and check the actuator wiring connection to see if they are loose or damage.
5.- Inspect the actuator rods (if equipped), make sure they are not bent or damaged.
6.- Check actuator by applying power momentarily, you should hear a strong click and the actuator will extend or retract.

I hope this will help you solve your problem

Good Luck!!
