yes each door has an actuator. my guess would lead more towards the wiring than the actuator though. you will ave some time testing to see where the power ends and go from there.

My back windows wont go up and the doors wont lock. door ajar light pops on

Will the windows go up and or lock from the respective doors? Is this the master control on the driver that does not respond? If so remove the driver door panel ( see 97 Park Ave door lock for instructions ) and check the wireing harness located under the switch control panel, make sure all are pluged in well and are not damaged. If the wireing harness is in good repair You might want to check salvage yards for the appropiate control switch replacement. ( watch them remove it from the junker and you'll know how to install it )

1997 buick park ave door lock buttom is loose. How do I remove the drivers side door panel?

At the bottom of the door panel you will find several screws ( haven't removed mine in a few mo. and have forgotten how many ) there are also screws under the slotted bottom of the finger grip in the door panel. After removing screws lift the panel from the bottom and to the top of the door. You will encounter clips on the rear of the door panel the most problematic is by door locking mechanism. Use a small blade flat screwdriver to Gently prise the clip out of the metal door. To pass over the interior door handle piviot the door panel, Take Care the wires for window and door lock are located here!
I used Gorilla Glue to reseat my lock button be Cautious not to bind the lock button, or the function will be impaired ( won't work ) HAVE FUN

Location of fuse or actuator for door lock on 1992 Buick Park Ave

Is it an actuator itself? If the lock clicks but really doesn't lock or unlock it could just be a linkage problem. There are some little plastic doohickies on the ends of the linkages that wear out and drop off. You can get those in the right auto parts store. Do all the door locks not work? Then, yes it could be the fuse. Usually a diagram on the fuse box cover, or even printed next to the fuse. If one door lock doesn't work, does it not work from just one switch or both switches? If it works from one switch, then of course it's the other switch. If it's the drivers door lock, then of course there's only one switch. (More often, it's a switch, not an actuator.) The drivers door switches come in a pad of four. It'd be cost-effective to get a used pad from a salvage yard. They can be checked with an ohmmeter right there, and they'd probably do it for you. Or take yours along. You'll have to remove the door panel at any rate. You'll need a Phillips screwdriver, and there's a nifty tool at the parts store for prying the clips on the back of the panel out of the door shell. You might want to find a local shade tree mechanic to guide you or do the job. It helps to be a little double-jointed. Price that stuff new, let your wallet and patience be your guide.

Drivers door latch will not open on 2000 Buick Park Ave

I think I can help you with this problem I need to know if the power lock on the drivers door makes a sound when you try to lock it with the switch. The are notorious for going out. It is most probably the actuator inside the door and will require removal of the inner panel. These are held into place with several screws and plastic clips. I hope this will get you started in the right direction, it's been a while since I have to change one of these but I beleive new the actuator is around 70.00 or you can purchase on from a wrecking yard online at, this is a great sight for a good price on used parts. Good luck and I hope I have helped.
