Check your fuses. Because the locks are powered they have a fuse. Most likely the fuse box is located on the driver side under the steering wheel/ dash.

    There wasn't a fuse box under the dashboard by the steering wheel. The only fuse box that I was able to find was under the hood by the battery. Still having problem!!!

Sounds like you have button to one of your door locks that is stuck, you remove door lock switches and disconnect 1 at a time to see which one it is. Over time a stuck switch will drain the battery it's sending voltage to all locks constantly, there's a switch tied to ignition switch on some models that locks door when you start the engine and unlocks doors when you shut the engine off, Chev.

2001 Mercury Villager keyless remote is malfunctioning


Keyless Entry
The keyless entry system consists of the following:
  • smart entry control(SEC)/timer module
  • keyless entry remote transmitters
  • power door lock actuators
  • body side door power door lock actuator
  • liftgate actuator
  • power door lock switches
  • door ajar switches
  • Principles of Operation
    All doors can be locked at once by turning the door key lock switch to the locked position. An individual door can be unlocked by moving the door key lock switch to the unlocked position and turning it again within five seconds; all the doors (including the liftgate) will unlock.
    The smart lock system is designed to keep the driver from locking his keys in the car. It will lock and then unlock all the doors if the smart entry control(SEC)/timer module detects the following conditions:
    • The ignition key still in the ignition.
    • A front door is open.
    • A door lock switch has been pushed to the lock position.
    The panic feature has a duration of 30 seconds from the last time the PANIC button is pressed. When locking the doors from the remote transmitter, the horn chirp/lamp flash feature can be disabled or enabled by holding the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons for two seconds. The hazards will flash three times to confirm that the feature has be enabled or disabled.
The control module probably see's an input that shouldn't be there . lock Switch , door ajar etc... Don't think it has anything to do with the remote . Some part stores have a tester to see if signal from the remote is working . Or the dealer ! Take it an see if your remote is sending a signal without you pressing any buttons .
If it is you need a new one .

Principles of Operation
Power Door Locks
The generic electronic module (GEM) controls the power door lock and keyless entry system. Lock and unlock operation is achieved through the use of internal relays in the GEM. The relays are all door lock, all door unlock and driver door unlock. The normal path of the relays is to ground.
Pressing the door lock control switch to lock or unlock sends a ground signal to the GEM. The same GEM pin is used for unlock and lock input. The unlock signal is a direct connection to ground. The lock signal is altered by an internal resistor in the door lock control switch. This varied resistance identifies lock or unlock command to the GEM.
The door locks can also be controlled by the door key cylinder switches. For the liftgate door lock switch, turning the key to lock or unlock sends a ground signal to the GEM. The GEM will then ground the all door lock or all door unlock relay supplying voltage to the actuators. Turning the driver door key cylinder to the lock position sends a ground signal to the GEM. The GEM will then ground the all door lock relay supplying voltage to the actuators. Turning the driver door key cylinder to unlock sends a ground signal to GEM. The GEM will ground the driver door unlock relay and supply voltage to only the driver door actuator. If a second unlock ground is received within three seconds of the first, the GEM will ground the all door unlock relay supplying voltage to the passenger door actuators (if 2-stage unlock is equipped).
Keyless Entry
The keyless entry remote transmitter sends a signal that is received by the GEM internal antenna. Depending on the signal received, the GEM module will ground the appropriate internal relay and lock all doors or unlock the driver door. If the unlock signal is received again within three seconds of the first unlock, the GEM will ground the internal all door unlock relay unlocking all doors. The lock and unlock relay output to the actuators is controlled by the GEM, the same as power door lock operation from the control switch.
If the signal received is for the panic button, the GEM will cycle ground to the park lamp relay coil and horn relay coil. The park lamps and horn will continue to cycle until the panic button is pressed again or the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, or after the timer expires.

Unlock button on key won't work.The lock button doesn't work either. We have to put the key in the door to unlock and push the button down to lock the doors.


Sounds like the button in the master switch, as all power must go through there. Also open door and between the door and jamb there will be a harness wiggle that while trying us the lock button, wires are known to brake there.

Its your switch then. There is just a switch that closes the connection when you push down. after time that can wear down and not work. May be wiring but most likely the switch.

If remote locks and unlocks driver door but does not unlock passenger doors,then follow the advice above:
Get in the car using the key to unlock the doors. From the passenger side lock and unlock your doors using the button on the passenger door. Get out and the remote should now unlock all the doors with 2 presses.
Worked perfectly for me after several other suggestions (and dealer) failed.

2004 Civic Drivers door lock


The driver's side door lock button is designed not to lock from the inside unless the handle is pulled, or the power switch is used. This serves as a reminder to not lock your keys inside.

If you are inside, and push down on the button (not the switch) hard enough to lock it, you've probably damaged it.
