Grinding noise when doors lock/unlock


Well the motor that locks the door is either breaking or either the wire or some part that moves is rubbing on something else. Take off the inner door panel and find the Exact location of the noise and you can replace the part. The door panel will be held on with screws and removable tabs that should pop out. Let me know if you get stuck. the parts can be bought at a dealer or gotten from a salvage yard

check www.car-parts.com for the nearest salvage yard if you want to go that route

Outside door locks wont open with key and inside when i push in the power locks it makes an awuful noise pushing the inside door lock could it be a bad motor for the lock mechanism please help ...


I believe you are on the right track. It sounds like you have a faulty door lock actuator. ( they typically make a buzzing/grinding type of noise). You will have to remove the door panel to replace that component and a quick call to an auto parts supplier should be able to get you one. Good Luck.

That sound is going to be your door lock motors wearing out. I would suggest getting them replaced pretty quickly as they will soon stop locking altogether. It's not cheap, but it isn't horribly expensive either.

The lock on my front driver door will not unlock with power locks the rest the door will not even open when i attempt to open from the inside i tried unlocking it with the key but it made a sounds like...


You will need to remove the inside door trim panel and check the three (3) rods and plastic connectors that connect:
(a) the inside door handle to the door mechanism
(b) the inside door lock knob/outside key lock cylinder to the door mechanism
(c) the outside door handle to door mechanism.

Most likely one (or more) of these rods have either become loose or the plastic lock clips have broken.
The "L" end of the rod goes thru the hole of the clip and the clip has a pivoting "U" shape that goes over and locks onto the rod.
Based on the your year (2000) it might be a good idea to remove all clips and rods; and remove the entire door mechanism. Inspect, clean, lubricate, and re-install it.

Noisy door locks


Hi my name is Allen!

The sound you are hearing is a built-in solenoid inside of the door latch itself, the part to replace will be the door latch or all latches that are making the noise.
