Power locks are not working when i press the button you can hear the click but it still is not working. the remote doesn't work either.

Most likely a slow door lock accuator, they get lasy and do not open all the way. Replace lock accuator.

Hello tmaxx31190
Start by checking fuse #7 a 15amp fuse in the fuse block under the left side of the dash. This fuse is for the accuator motor on top of the left front axel tube. The accuator moter engages and
disengages the front axel for 4wd and 2wd. If the fuse is good, have someone operate the switch
and check to see if the accuator is working, you should be able to hear it engage or disengage.
If it's not working check the connections and for power at the accuator before possibly changing it.
If the accuator is working, it could be a problem with the shift fork inside the differential. Also, have
someone start the truck and engage the 4x4 then look to be sure the output shaft from transfer case to the front axel is turning. The safest way to do this is to have all 4 wheels up on jack stands.
Hope this is helpful.

All of the door locks but one on our 1999 GMC Suburban will not lock or unlock when using either the remote or the door lock switch. Is there a relay that accuates the locks?

there is a relay but if it were bad none of your locks would work. your problem is the door lock motor it is a little electric motor that actuates the lock. its also called a door lock actuator. kind of expensive and a little difficult to replace.

Power door locks move but won't lock/unlock

I had this problem with the door locks also and it was the door look accuators were striped out. Most locking accuators use a type of motor gear which is plastic. Over time the plastic becomes hard and the teeth break off. You can get these new or used on ebay or get some aftermarket accuators from a car alarm installer. Hope this helps. Terence
