Well, something is broken, somewhere. Start by removing batteries from remote key fobs, ALL of them, then pull apart each lock control switch, testing after each one is disconnected...the the ares of suspect is wires going through the door jambs. Starting with the drivers door.

If you find wiring damaged at the door jamb, you must replace the wire, rather than repair, so that there is NEW wire completely through the jamb area, anything else fails really fast, due to the flexing... At least cut damaged wire inside the door and inside the vehicle at kick panel...

2000 pontiac Montana passenger sliding door will not open and lock is stuck in the lock position.


If you cannot manually unlock the door, use a rubber hammer and firmly rap the door at the striker/lock area while manually sliding the lock/unlock switch to unlock,it may take a few tries but should unlock.DO NOT lock the door again until you have lubed the lock assembly and are happy with it's operation.If it's an electric lock fail to unlock/lock,with the door open use steel wool on the door post electrical door contact pads once in a while.

2005 Chevy Impala. The door locks keep locking during drive.


It's probably a bad input to the BCM - body control module ! Have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .
The automatic door lock function can only be enabled by the body control module (BCM) if the driver door open switch and door ajar switches are in the Closed state. For information on programming the automatic door locks, refer to Vehicle Personalization in Personalization.
DTC B3064 or B3069
DTC B3127
DTC B3128, B3133, or B3138
DTC B3132
DTC B3137
DTC B3272
Your best bet , take it to the chevy dealer . Unless you own a GM factory Tech 2 scan tool an have access to factory sevice repair info.
.
The outputs to the door lock actuators are controlled by the body control module (BCM). When the BCM receives a lock input from a door lock switch, or a keyless entry transmitter, it applies battery positive voltage to the door lock actuator lock control circuit, a ground to the door lock actuator unlock control, and the driver door lock actuator unlock control circuits. When the BCM receives an unlock input from a door lock switch, it applies battery positive voltage to the door lock actuator unlock control, the driver door lock actuator unlock control circuits, and a ground to the door lock actuator lock control circuit . When the BCM receives an single Unlock input from a keyless entry transmitter, it applies battery positive voltage to the driver door lock actuator unlock control circuit and a ground to the door lock actuator lock control circuit to unlock the driver door. A second Unlock input from the transmitter applies battery positive voltage to the door lock actuator unlock control circuit, and a ground to the door lock actuator lock control circuit to unlock the passenger doors.

This diagnostic procedure supports the following DTCs:
• DTC B3128 Left Front/Driver Door Unlock Circuit High
• DTC B3133 All Door Unlock Circuit High
• DTC B3138 All Door Lock Circuit High

Doorlocks keep locking even when out of the


Dave, it would appear that at one point one of the manual locks were forced either to unlock or lock and has now repositioned the nuetral point at a different location on the locking rod, hence, sending false readings to the control unit to either unlock or lock, I would try this, close all doors and manually lock them see which lock lever look unlike the rest in that position, this will be the culprit and have to be reset on the rod behind the door trim panel. This advice is as best as I can give without manually seeing the car. Drive safely

Electric door lock mafunction


Door lock/unlock actuator (motor) has gone bad in the passenger side. Get the actuator from a Hyundai Parts dealer (or junk yard if you trust them) and replace it yourself OR take it to a Hyundai Service Center and they'll do it for you.

Lock wont open!


You have to remove the door panel and manually move the lock release rods inside of the door it could prove to be vary difficult. A body shop is the next step if this proves worthless.

My 1989 Chrysler LeBaron with power door locks has the paasenger side door jammed. Any ideas on how to unjam it?


Hi
If the Problem is That you Can't Unlock the Door With Door Unlock Switch, Or The Key Outside of Door, nor can you Unlock Door with Manual Unlock Button [ Electrical Lock Doors Only ] Then More than Likley The lock / Unlock Motor that electricaly Locks and unlocks the Door has become Defective and is Jamming the ability to Unlock the Door by any method. You will have to find some way to get to the Mechinisim to move the door lock to the Unlock Position before you can open the Door. This will be very hard with the Door Closed but you may be able to remove the cover over the inside door handle and with some moveing of the link to the lock / unlock mechensim to get the door Unlocked. If not you may have to take it to your dealer or a body shop to see if they can get the Door unlocked. Try not to force unlock with a key as this will damage the Keylock Mechinism.
Then you will have to replace the Door lock / unlock Motor or simply disconnect the linkage to the door lock / unlock Motor and use a key to lock / unlock the Door untill you can replace the motor.
This is a common problem that shows up in these older cars. In my case both of the door lock motors on my 1987 Lebaron went out about the same time but the Pasenger went out first.
Usually the first indication that this problem is about to occure is you find that the Door lock becomes harder to lock and unlock with the key or with the manual door lock button.
