    have same problem with power door locks. same solution, pull fuse and reinsert. works until next time.

  • Anonymous Aug 20, 2008

    Power door lock are stuck in the unlocked position. There are no power door fuses in the fuse box under the hood. In the owners manual it says to reset the locks by closing all the doors, put the key in the ignition and turn the key into the on and off mode without turning over the engine 4 times ending in the off position and within 10 sec click the door lock switch into the lock position. A chime will sound and the locks should reset. This worked for about a week and it happened again, this time the reset did not work. Help.

I did the thing pulling the 20am IOD fuse out and it seemed to work great! I was going to go back to the dealership.... stupidness....
My dad is a mechanic and he said that the fuse may just have to be replaced.

The solution is simple, take your vehicle to a dealer and have your body control module reprogrammed. You do not need to replace the controller. I have performed this repair numerous times. I don't know what other dealers charge but i usually charge a one hour labor charge. Price will vary depending on labor rates. I've never had one come back for the same problem after performing the flash.

Hi, The overall problem is with the Body Control Module (BCM). The dealer may offer to re-flash it as it's a software problem. BUt you need the BCM replaced. The cost ranges depending upon your dealer butif you are out of warrantly and the cost is over $150 - $175 USD, call Chrysler 1-800-992-1997 and tell them your ordeal. Chrysler will ask the dealer to send them your BCM so they can program your milage into the module and then return it to you. Then ask the Chrysler rep (Or dodge person) to reduce the cost as this is their software issue, and it was bad from the start. This will Work!!!

Try to reset on board computer....... remove the battery cable (negative). let it unhook for awhile or one hour.
Install again the cable, test your power lock.

THis should work fine.

I did it 4 time in last two month pulling out 20 amp IDO fuse and don't know how many time I have to keep doing it in future. Is there a permanent solution for this? Will it corrupt the program set in the car or damage other system?

Go under the hood, into the fuse box, pull the 20amp IDO fuse for 20 seconds, plug it back in and it should be fine. Or, take it the dealer and pay them $100+ to basically do the same thing. No guarantees how long it will last (weeks, months?) but it will get you through and it's free. It may be triggered by a power lock actuator going out, but I'm not sure. I'm still trying to figure this out on my own 05 GC. Hope this helps and saves you a trip to the dealer.

Power door lock on driver side has stop working


The problem is most likely the switch/plunger .
You will need to take off the door panel and look inside, with an electrical tester, and see what has failed.
The switch/plungers are quite cheaply made, and fail often.
God bless your efforts.

The power door locks don't work right. they don't blow the fuse,you can take the fuse out and they will work little while


Disconnect the negative battery terminal for a few minutes. the door lock works on different frequency power signals supplied by one wire. With mixed frequencies stuff happens.

Power locks do not work- where are the fuses inside the the van


The problem is the BCM. The fix is a software update. Resetting the computer by removing and then replacing the 20 amp fuse marked 10D in the fuse box under the hood next to the battery is a temporary fix.
