Your actual switches may have gotten wet, or have gone bad. You will need a jumper wire to test the switches. Remove the switch for each window and lock. Using the jumper wire, see if the each window will go up and down by jumping out each set of contacts. (Make the jumper take the place of the switch) Replace any window or lock switch that operates using the jumper, but doesn't work with the switch.

1996 suzuki sidekick sport jlx all four power windows and door locks quit at the same time


Look for broken wires leading into the driver's door. Have you already checked for a fuse problem? The windows and locks may be fused, or they may be on a circuit breaker. Sounds like power is not getting to the master switch, or the ground for it is lost. If you have a voltmeter, you can check for power and ground right at the master switch. The switch will have one hot wire to it with the key on, and one ground wire from the switch back into the cabin and then to ground somewhere, probably close by.
Ground a voltmeter or test light, pull the master switch connector apart, turn key on, and probe the connector for one hot wire. If you have it, good. If no power, again check for broken wires at the door. To check the ground wire, put positive lead on the hot wire, and the negative lead into the ground terminal source at the connector. If the ground is good, the meter will show battery voltage, or the testlight will light up. If the ground is lost, you will get nothing on the meter or testlight.

Camry 1996 automatic power lock doen't work, but windows work.


if you can here relays when unlocking/locking check for power at door lock actuators inside doors, if you have power on lock/unlock and good earth from connector actuators are faulty.
if no power on test light when operating check output from central door lock module while operating, none coming out of module then it might need replacing.
check 30Amp power fuse for main relay under bonnet (which goes to pin 8 white/blue on module)and 10Amp gauge fuse in cab(pin 1 blue/red on module),pin 15 is also power when relay is on(red/blue) with test light, and module/ actuators.
check outputs from module pin 3 & 4
blue/red
blue/black
that go to door locks

Suzuki swift broken electronic door lock


No there is not many problems with this car at all. In fact it has very good ratings. This car may just have a bad electrical connection to the lock mechanism behind the door panel. You can push down drivers lock and then hit all door lock button and it should work no problem. You then can use remote to unlock all doors.

I have 1993 Suzuki Sidekick 4Drs 1.6L. Recently I replaced a new battery but my door locks and radio do not work. What could be the problem? and how to solve? Please aadvice Thanks Raj NY


Did the locks and radio work before you replaced the battery? If they did ,it is possible to have blown the fuse that operates these items. Check all the fuses with a test light. Place the test light on both sides of the fuse to make sure it lights on both ends ,if you find one that lights on one side but not the other,have it replaced and recheck the operation of the locks and radio. Hope this helps. Moe

Door locks open by themselves randomly


some possibilities

The power door locks may self-activate or cycle on some vehicles. This may be caused by a misadjusted front door lock linkage, excess solder in the front door power window switch, water infiltration of a potential open wire harness connector inside the front doors, wiring harness chafe on the door check strap, or a damaged Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) key fob.
