    switches in these cars receive burnt contacts that cause them not to operate.

    replacing the switch is the easiest solution unless you can take the old one apart to clean

Hi! If the driver's side lock is not working then you surely has a faulty door lock actuator. The door lock surely is stuck that's why its not working. You will need to replace this to resolve the problem. It is located at the back of the door fram once you removed the door trim. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Lock an unlock by them selves ? Door locks are computer controlled ,by the BCM - body control module .
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Power Door Locks Circuit Description
The power door lock system includes the following components:
• The door lock actuators
• A door lock relay
• An door unlock relay
• A driver door unlock relay
• The door lock and side window switches
• The body control module (BCM)
• The endgate lock cylinder switch /liftgate lock cylinder switch (utility)
• The keyless entry, if equipped
The door lock and liftgate mechanisms may be controlled by the following switches:
• The door lock and side window switches
• The BCM
• The endgate lock cylinder switch / liftgate lock cylinder switch (utility)
• The keyless entry, if equipped
The following locking functions are included on the vehicle:
• All the doors unlock -- All the doors will unlock, including the endgate/liftgate, when any power door unlock switch is detected. The passenger doors lock directly by pressing the lock switches. The driver door unlocks by the BCM using a driver door unlock relay.
• All the doors lock -- All the doors will lock, including the endgate/liftgate, when any power door lock switch is activated. All the lock actuators will activate directly from the power door lock switch (external to the BCM).
• The end/lift gate lock switch -- All the doors will lock or unlock from the end/lift gate lock switch.
• The lockout prevention -- This function will prevent the doors from automatically locking if the keys have been left in the ignition and the power door lock switch is operated.
The motor is protected by a built-in electronic circuit breaker (ECB). If the motor is overloaded or voltage is applied for an excessive amount of time, the ECB internal resistance increases, essentially creating an open circuit. The resistance returns to normal only after voltage is removed from the circuit, thereby restoring circuit continuity.

You have a bad switch input to the BCM !

2006 malibu that locks and unlocks the doors while driving. Also the doors can be unlocked and when you open a door the alarm sounds.


You have a door lock/unlock switch problem or a door lock/unlock switch wiring problem.
Many mechanics fear working on doors, since its a wholly different world of tools and techniques
than engine work.
Once you get inside the door lock/unlock switch area (its almost always the driver's side, rather
than the passenger side), look for a worn wire or end of a spade lug near or touching a ground, and
automotive grounds are any part of the body or door - the door is not a good ground, but it does
end up being grounded through the hinge.

Power door lock in door does not work. Door locks will work with key FOB


its probably the master lock switch(drivers door). Gm's have these common problems. If its the master switch, none of the other lock switches will work either. check ur local junk yard
