Door lock solenoid for 1995 buick regal

Door lock solenoids are connected to the door lock by linkage inside the door. That's the best place for them. You have to remove the door handle and window crank then remove the door panel to get to it.

Door locks keep cycling

Chances are there is one of the switches sticking of grounding out (giving power to the lock solenoids) causing them to continually cycle. If you have an after market alarm or keyless entry system on the car that can also cause issues if the module is bad or wires are shorting out causing there to be positive or negative given to the locks causing them to constantly actuate.

Driver door electric lock not working

lock solenoid is either bad or disconnected.
to check -- open the door and when you press the door lock button, can you hear the solenoid popping ?? if you hear the solenoid popping then the linkage most likely has a broken clip and needs to be re-attached using a new clip. but if you do not hear the solenoid then the problem is either a bad solenoid, a loose wire or a bad door lock switch. if you remove the door panel - use a volt meter to check for voltage and trace the problem.

The driver door power lock will lock but not unlock.

It is probably the switch or one of the solenoids in the door. Try using the lock button on the passenger door. Doe it unlock from that switch? If it does, then it is the drivers door switch. If not, then the solenoid is either not working... should not make thunking noise when activated... or the connecting rods for the automatic door lock have become disconnected from the solenoid or from the lock.

Door locks

Regarding the rear door child locks: There is a small lever on the latch side of the door, you can only see it with the door open. Move it to the other position.

Regarding the front door locks: You either have a bad door lock switch, or the power lock solenoids are beginning to fail. To check this, you will need to pull the door panels off, & measure the actual voltage at the solenoids whilst manipulating the lock switch. If you have 12 + VDC, I would suggest replacing the door lock solenoids. Not hard to change, but it IS time consuming. Best left to a dealer. Expect to pay 1 hour per side to change each solenoid.

Are you hearing any noises from the pass door when you activate the lock switch? If not, the power door lock solenoid has failed, and prob needs to be replaced. Pull the door panel & check to see if it is getting power to the solenoid in lock & unlock. If it has power, the solenoid is def bad.
