1st thing to try is open the drivers door, look between the upper and lower hinge of the door. You will see the fat loom tubing (this contains all the wires for windows, air bag, speaker and locks etc) disconnect this loom (twist-lock) and spray with WD40 or penetrating fluid. 9 times out of 10 this will sort it.

Note: Disconnect battery first.

My 98 kia sportage wont start


It sounds like the key sensor in the drivers door is malfunctioning, the drivers door is the only door that can enable/disable the alarm, if you try to unlock any of the others it will trigger the alarm.

Sometimes with my Kia I have to (without opening the door), cycle lock and unlock several times before the alarm is disarmed.

Have you tried this is succession, with all the doors locked:-

put the key in the drivers door, turn to lock and then to unlock, the alarm should disarm.

Also, if any of the door locks are jammed, the alarm will still activate when you try to unlock the drivers door.

If that fails and the alarm still activates, then it's a problem with the key sensor in the door.

Lock door using key. only drivers side door locks remaining doors stay open. why?


I just answered this same question few hours ago...

The culprit is the foolish decisi?n of using a BCM (Body Control Module) to control the door locks with only two wires to the actuator on the lock. In order to "save" a few feet of copper wire, the too-intelligent automotive designers decided to use a costly, heavy, unreliable, complex electronic module instead of the third wire. Therefore, it now needs to multiplex the lock-unlock commands on only two wires. This BCM fails miserably in every Stratus or Sebring and Chrisler Minivans I've seen using this design approach.

As the BCM is VERY expensive and a real pain to remove from the dash, I resorted to disconnecting the wiring from the doors to the BCM, and paid a lot less to a car alarm installer, who installed an inexpensive car alarm with remote. Now I have to carry TWO remotes: the original one to set the original Chrysler alarm/inmovilizer, and the second to be able to remotely actuate the locks. It was much less costly (I saved about $350 USD) and a lot of pain to get the BCM from the car, additionally, I have heard that the repaired BCMs tend to fail again in a matter of two to three years after repair... sooo.

Best Luck. Amclaussen.

This can happen If you have used the IGN. key to unlock the drivers door after you locked them from the fob. This can also be caused by a stuck button on the drovers door. Check the drivers door all buttons to see if any are stuck. If you do not have any stuck buttons. Try this, from inside the car, with out the car running, use the button on the drivers door to "lock all doors". Then use the fob to unlock them, then get out and press the lock button on the fob twice real quick. This should cause the drivers door to lock as the others. Hope this helps Fix Ya Up.

Door locks not working properly.


one of the front door latches is out of adjustment or bad. when you lock it at the trunk try the front doors to see if they might still open when the alarm is set if so that is your bad latch. bad news is to replace it you will need to tear down the entire inside of door

CAR ALARM


put your key in the drivers side from the outside door and turn the key one time to the right to lock your car and two times to unlock it and if your having trouble with the alarm going off open the trunk with the key to disable the alarm if it turned on.
