First check all of the fuses under the drivers side dash (where your left knee rests while sitting down in the drivers seat) Make sure they are not burnt out. If the fuses are perfect then most likely the door lock actuator has failed. Here is how to repair and replace it:

  • Remove the door panel it's 2 screws located on the inside door handle, 2 on the bottom and one at the top near the mirror.

  • With that removed you take off the foam panel and expose the inside of the door.

  • The lock actuators are easy to find, they are attached to the lock rod. There is one electrical connector on it that is taken off by lifting the lock clip using a slot screwdriver then just pull the connector out.

The actuator itself is a bit odd to get out.
It slides in from the direction of the outside of the door.
There is a very thin narrow **** located where the striker hits the lock on the outside door jam and this goes directly to the side of the actuator. Use a putty knife then push it into the **** and then push onto the actuator releasing the little friction clip that you can see on the new actuator.

You then have to push and push this whole thing towards the outside wall of the door which doesn't go too easily. The good thing though is that the new ones slide right into place easily.

  • Another thing, the pin on the actuator that moves the lock-rod just sits inside the lock-rod, there is no mechanical attachment and it fairly loose so no need to worry about that part of it.

Door locks unlocks


Sounds like the main wiring loom into the door has been damaged.
Check near the hinges, where the door swings, to see if any damaged wires. Does the door lock and unlock from the drivers side switch?

All doors will not unlock


Try replacing the ECC fuse on the drivers side fuse panel. This seems to control quite a bit of the rear electronics.

Wont go off


Try unlocking from the passenger door. Some of these had a key cylinder switch on the back of the lock cylinder which deactivates the alarm. If it works ok from passenger side then the switch inside driver door would need replaced
