It sounds like a linkage rod from the actuator to the actual locking mechanism may have come loose. The repair will require removing the door panel, raising the window and look for a rod that is just hanging down. A replacement clip should not cost more than a few dollars, and the repair itself should only take a few minutes. Removing the door panel is the hardest part. If you take the panel off and drive to someplace like Autozone they may have the part and give advice on the repair as well.

2005 Chevy Equinox Driver & Passenger Door Unlock Relay. How To Remove & Install. They Are Power Locks. Front Doors Must Roll Windows Down Use Hand To Open Thanks. Ms. J. C.


Door Lock and Unlock Operation
When a door lock switch is activated in the lock or unlock position the BCM will receive a voltage signal on either the door lock switch lock or unlock signal circuits.
The BCM, upon receipt of a lock switch lock or unlock signal, will switch the appropriate lock relay control circuit(s) to battery positive voltage. This will energize the appropriate lock or unlock relay(s). The relay will supply voltage to the door lock actuator lock or unlock control circuits to one side of the lock actuator. Since the opposing side of the lock actuators are connected to ground through the other lock actuator control circuit and the normally closed contacts of the lock or unlock relay, the doors and liftgate will then lock or unlock appropriately.
Three relays are used to operate the lock. Driver door unlock, passenger door unlock and all door lock. This is done to isolate the driver door lock actuator so it can be unlocked by itself using the keyless entry transmitter.
Your door locks are controlled by the BCM - body control module (a computer ) . An a scan tool is a must to diagnose system operation . Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop . The only way you could try to fix this is by changing parts ! Suppose you find an replace a door lock/ unlock relay an that doesn't fix it ? There could be DTC'S stored in the BCM . Do you know what a DTC is ?

My door on the driverside will not lock or unlockwith the remote all other doors work ok


does it work with the switch (both drivers and passengers side?)

It could be the actuator is burned out its self if it doesn't work at all, or you have a broken wire in the door boot.

Other option is its a fault of the BCM. The door lock communications is a data signal on the cars CAN network... when do remote starts on a 01 GM product I use an interface module that will control the door locks, otherwise on certain models you have to wire into the circuit board in the drivers window switch as its the main control for the door locks when using the switch

I just bought an equinox 2005 LS and I dont know how to lock the rear door.


To unlock the liftgate, press the unlock button on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter twice or use the power door lock switch.
To lock the liftgate, press the lock button on the RKE transmitter or use the power door lock switch. The liftgate does not have a key lock cylinder.
To open the liftgate, pull up on the handle located in the center of the liftgate.
When closing the liftgate, use the molded handles to pull the liftgate down. Push the liftgate closed until it latches.

Drivers Door Lock Problem


Press the passenger side door lock button. if the driver side door unlocks now but wont unlock when you hit the driver side door lock button, it is usually a network communication problem with the B CAN or a faulty Body Control Module.

Check inside wiring by the driver's side door hinge. Remove the rubber boot and you will find broken wires. Make a splice and you are fixed!
