Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora

1 Answer

2001 aurora power window/lock failure.

This car had set for 2 weeks in my garage. It had rained the last time I drove it. When I got in, the front floor was damp and the rear floor was soaked. My driver door functions fine. The other 3 door's windows and locks do not open via driver door controls, remote/unlock control or individual door controls.
The fusebox was fine under the rear seat and no blown fuses. Any suggestions?

Power Windows Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door power window can be operated, either from a switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA), or from a switch mounted locally on its associated door. The driver door power window can only be operated from the switch built into the DDSA.
If the driver door module (DDM) receives a window switch request from any of the window switches built into the DDSA, the DDM checks the Class 2 serial data to see if conditions are correct (i.e. ignition switch position) to permit window operation to occur. If conditions are correct, the DDM, either supplies power and ground to its associated window motor, or sends a command via the power door serial data line to the passenger door module controlling the window. The passenger door module controlling the window then supplies power and ground to its associated window motor to move the window as requested.
When one of the local window switches mounted on one of the passenger doors is operated, the associated passenger door module examines the request and checks to see if there are any messages from the DDM prohibiting the window operation. If conditions are correct, and no prohibitive messages have been received from the DDM, the associated passenger door module then supplies power and ground to its associated window motor to move the window as requested.

Class 2 data network wires under the carpet behind driver seat. Water shorts out the network an and it won't work .
your looking for tan/white wire's and a connector . This is where the problem is .

SOURCE: when it rains-- drivers side floor wet-- checked

Take your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Olds

All of these body control functions are run by one central electonic module, it is called the BCM, this stands for "Body Control Module". The BCM can be tested for loss of function of the systems it controls, this is everything you have problem with, the doors the power windows the mirrors, all of it, this self test is run with a GM electronic system scanner called a "Tech 2". More than likely the BCM has failed, this would be the common problem here, but the the module can't just be replaced, the new module (if one is still available) must be programmed for your cars built in security system and other features you have must be enabled to function properly, so what does this mean? you need to have a GM dealer repair this. If there was another way i would be glad to share it with you.

It sounds like you drove it in the rain and parked for a while. I doubt you have damaged anything but why be so bold. Remove the rear wheels and hubs so you can inspect the brakes.

2001 Olds Aurora Driver's Seat Problem.

The seat is programmable to each keyless remote that comes with the car. If the car has the same features as mine, when sitting in the drivers seat and you look on the drivers side door there are two buttons labeled with a 1 and a 2 and if you adjust the seat to how you want it with the car on and then press either one of those buttons and hold it down until it beeps it will then set the seat to one of the two keyless remotes which each have a 1 or 2 engraved into the plastic back of the remote. Then every time you unlock the door the seat automatically readjusts to wherever it was set when one of those buttons was pushed to save the setting.

Drivers window does not move and sometimes display reads drivers side front door ajar and i cant even open gas cap

For power door lock failure, similarly, see this handy diagnostic article:

This should help.
