Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

Drivers side door would not lock. I pushed the door lock closed with my finger, now it will not unlock. I tried the passenger side and pushed it locked to see if it was just on one side, now, both doors are locked and open to where I can not close the doors. What do I do to fix this?

If the door lock mechanism is got stuck inside then to release it the door has to be disassembled.The inner panel od door has to be disassembled.Either the door latch which moves and lock/unlock the door is got stuck or that latch is got stuck.Insert the key in the door assembly and try to move the door lock latch.But if that is not helping then,disassemble the door panel. Remove the door panel by removing the screws located in the door pull/arm rest, the inside latch trim, and the lower edge of the panel.From inside the door, unsnap and then rotate the retainers that attach the door's actuator rods to the latch assembly. Remove the actuator rods from the door latch assembly.Remove the three screws that attach the latch assembly to the door, and remove the latch assembly from the door.Then check the condition of the latch,if its proper,then reinstall it and then check.It will work.But if the latch is got cracked or broken inside or worn out and not moving properly to lock unlock then,the latch has to be replaced.You can get the required part from local auto store.Take the old latch with you,so you can get exact latch. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

try taking apart and cleanig all contacts first. make sure you are getting power to switch. Sounds more switches are going bad. They usually last about 5 to 7 years before they start going out.

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

Door locks unlocks


Sounds like the main wiring loom into the door has been damaged.
Check near the hinges, where the door swings, to see if any damaged wires. Does the door lock and unlock from the drivers side switch?

Drivers Door Lock Problem


Press the passenger side door lock button. if the driver side door unlocks now but wont unlock when you hit the driver side door lock button, it is usually a network communication problem with the B CAN or a faulty Body Control Module.

Jam door locks


How about the passenger side - does it unlock with the key and switch there? Can you open the drivers door with a key? If both these are true, probably the unlock switch on the drivers door is faulty.
