    The fuse is on the blower motor. Don't find a fuse blown covering the door lock.

Your blower motor fuse failure is probably due to the fan resistor. You access it via the left hand speaker where you'll find a multi connector & a rubber cooling pipe connected to it. When you remove the resistor you'll see a set of contacts on a bi-metal spring. Bend the spring so the contact gap is 3.5mm. If the fault re-occurs you'll need to fit the later,modified type.
The CDL fault is probably a separate issue. Either broken wires going into the door or the locking motor itself.
Hope this helps if i'm not too late!

Sounds like a short try removing the plug to the lock and see if it blows the fuse it may be a short within the locking motor

Door lock will not lock

all doors, all fobs (car came with 2, both dead)
if one is dead, its the fob battery , if 2 are dead it the car brain is dead.

and do the metal keys (like olden day) keys fail to work in all doors?
if these all fail, in all doors or most, then ICE is the reason. got ICE?
if only electrics fail. then check the fuses in both fuse boxes.
open glove box, see book, ? it shows all fuses, in car.

Check for a bad switch in the door.
Water leaking from the rag top-door seal joint often drains into the switch, causing a short or bad contact eventually.

Front passenger door will not open 1998 Tercel

If the passenger door has not been opened for some weeks or months, or in icy weather, it is possible that the rubber seals around the door frame will cause the door to appear 'stuck' fast - in this case, a bit of extra force from inside the car whilst pulling on the interior door handle should cause the door to open. Failing that, if the car has electrically operated central locking, when the key fob is pressed to deactivate the central locking does the door lock on the passenger side work as expected? Try unlocking the passenger door with a key, and or pull the door lock button upwards to ensure that the lock has been deactivated. Check for blown fuses.

I have a 2004 9-3 and the passenger side window,mirror and lock don't have power the fuse is good. Any ideas? thanks Kim

This is common. Try disconnecting the harness at the door connector (by the door check and hinges) and then reconnecting the connector. Test. Still and issue, disconnect the battery's negative battery connection. If that doesn't do it, you will have to go to a Saab dealership with a Tech II and have them update the software for the Passenger Door Module and re-add the Module in programming.

2000 Ford Focus electric locks/acuator failure recurring problem

I would follow their recommendation as I had the same problem with my car. They unhooked the power to that door and it was fine. The problem was a short in the wiring in the door that was causing the problem. So maybe get them to check the wiring in the door as well.
