SOURCE: problem with the door locks

Get yourself a can of penetrating spray, like WD-40, and spray inside each latch assembly at the door. spray up,down, sides etc, and let it sit for a while then start working the locks up & down manually first, to try & get things loosened up a bit. It may take a couple of good sprayings to get them loosened up, so be patient. Then start working them with remote and see what happens. Also if you see contact points on door & post where round or whatever shape, 2 metal pieces meet, clean them off with fine steel wool.

SOURCE: driver side door won't unlock with the key

This means your door lock cylinder needs to be replaced. It is a 1 hour job and the cylinder costs around $180. Thanks

Sounds like bad battery contact or ground. Take them off and clean with sand paper.

So far, what I have tried hasn't worked. Guess I will have to take off door panel. But which door? Driver side door locks and unlocks with remote, with key and with inside door switch. Passenger door...


Since the driver's door gets the most use, and all circuits run through the master switch, check driver's door first and check the wiring at the hinge area for breaks.

2004 chevy malibu driver and passenger door lock problems


The locks on your vehicle are electronically controlled by the BCM - body control module . The driver an passenger door switche's are input's to the BCM . Do you know anything about automotive electronic's ? anti theft alarm remote, could this be part of the problem , No it's just a key less entry remote , nothing to do with the anti-theft .
Door Lock System Components
The Power Door Lock System consists of the following components:
• Body control module (BCM)
• Driver door lock switch
• Front passenger door lock switch
• Door lock actuators in each of the doors
• IBCM (PWR) 15-amp fuse

Door Lock System Controls
The Power Door Lock System is controlled by the body control module (BCM) and can be activated by any one of the following:
• A door lock switch Lock or Unlock actuation
• A keyless entry transmitter actuation
• An automatic door lock actuation
• An automatic door unlock actuation
• A last door closed locking (LDCL) actuation

Driver and Passenger Door Unlock Operation w/o Keyless Entry
When the body control module (BCM) detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the Unlock position, it switches the door lock actuator unlock control circuits to voltage. Since the door lock actuator lock control circuit is at ground potential within the BCM, the driver passenger door lock actuators transition to the Unlock position.

Your best bet , take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop ! Need special tool to diagnose .

Power locks don't work with remote or control from


The door lock/unlock input from the driver's key switch goes to the Door Multiplex control unit (main switch), the Door multiplex control unit then sends a signal on the BUS (CAN) circuit to the passenger's multiplex control unit; the passenger's multiplex control unit then controls all the door locks. The passenger's door lock key switch inputs to the passenger's multiplex control unit, if the locks work from the passenger's side key switch but not the driver's side key switch, the most likely cause is the driver's multiplex control unit (main switch) not sending the signal to the passenger's side multiplex control unit. This could also be the drivers side door lock actuator. Hope this helps!

ck if either pass or driver switches will work. the lock actuators are common to be bad, but, if they lock but wont unlock more likely a switch problem.

Passenger door won't unlock


Flip the power lock switch on your dash (twice). Once only unlocks the drivers side door, twice unlocks the passenger side door and the hatchback. Good luck!
