No electric power to left door Fuse and relay are good


Check the wire lume that runs from the body to the door inside a rubber bellow. the wires can break from constant moving and I'm not sure what vehicle you have, but this is a defect for a few vehicles out there the wire can be to short in some cases from cost saving manufacturing. It may be necessary to remove the door panel and remove the harness through the wire opening to be able to move the boot far enough to access the broken wire or even just to check it in some cases.
How I like to repair it, is to put a new wire through the entire pivot point and join it inside the door and body where the wire does not move constantly.

Hope this helps

2000 blazer keeps locking and unlocking by itself


Sounds like you have a short where you are moving the wiring. Remove tape/wire loom from the harness and see if you find bare or broken wires. They are very prone to do this in the wiring between the door and the body. Repair problem wires and you should be okay. Alarm is most likely being triggered by the same short. Happy hunting!

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 .

Power door locks keep unlocking, and then when unlocked they keep clicking to unlock repeatedly, the car will not stay locked and had to disconnect the battery to keep it locked and so not to need a jump...


it could be a shoted wire to ground going to the door lock actuators or a bad door lock actuator.

Disconnect all door lock actuators & see what happens, If ok, connect one at a time and see which one acts up.

Power door locks move but won't lock/unlock


I had this problem with the door locks also and it was the door look accuators were striped out. Most locking accuators use a type of motor gear which is plastic. Over time the plastic becomes hard and the teeth break off. You can get these new or used on ebay or get some aftermarket accuators from a car alarm installer. Hope this helps. Terence

Power door locks


This could be hard to diagnose for someone that doesn't know about electronically controlled automotive systems . There are two electronic control modules involved ! (FEM) front electronic control module and the (REM) rear electronic control module . The first step would be to hook up a scan tool to look at input data to the control modules. Corrupt signals to the module ! B+ power an ground circuits problems . The wiring inside the harness from the body to driver door , opening an closing of the door breaks the wires over time . Load testing the circuit will find the problem.

My 1989 Chrysler LeBaron with power door locks has the paasenger side door jammed. Any ideas on how to unjam it?


Hi
If the Problem is That you Can't Unlock the Door With Door Unlock Switch, Or The Key Outside of Door, nor can you Unlock Door with Manual Unlock Button [ Electrical Lock Doors Only ] Then More than Likley The lock / Unlock Motor that electricaly Locks and unlocks the Door has become Defective and is Jamming the ability to Unlock the Door by any method. You will have to find some way to get to the Mechinisim to move the door lock to the Unlock Position before you can open the Door. This will be very hard with the Door Closed but you may be able to remove the cover over the inside door handle and with some moveing of the link to the lock / unlock mechensim to get the door Unlocked. If not you may have to take it to your dealer or a body shop to see if they can get the Door unlocked. Try not to force unlock with a key as this will damage the Keylock Mechinism.
Then you will have to replace the Door lock / unlock Motor or simply disconnect the linkage to the door lock / unlock Motor and use a key to lock / unlock the Door untill you can replace the motor.
This is a common problem that shows up in these older cars. In my case both of the door lock motors on my 1987 Lebaron went out about the same time but the Pasenger went out first.
Usually the first indication that this problem is about to occure is you find that the Door lock becomes harder to lock and unlock with the key or with the manual door lock button.
