Its the Door jam switch one of them is most likely Damaged~
you can change it your self if you feel up for it or tell the mechanic to do it~

oh door jam switches are those button type things that press down when the door is closed kinda like the thing in your fridge that turns off and on the light so just look at all of them and find the one that is broken and change it out just go to the dealership for the part (if you want to save some money)

or you can yell at the shop for not finding it and make them feel stupid that you know what the problem is and your not even a mechanic so they do it for free~

2005 Chevy Impala. The door locks keep locking during drive.

It's probably a bad input to the BCM - body control module ! Have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .
The automatic door lock function can only be enabled by the body control module (BCM) if the driver door open switch and door ajar switches are in the Closed state. For information on programming the automatic door locks, refer to Vehicle Personalization in Personalization.
DTC B3064 or B3069
DTC B3127
DTC B3128, B3133, or B3138
DTC B3132
DTC B3137
DTC B3272
Your best bet , take it to the chevy dealer . Unless you own a GM factory Tech 2 scan tool an have access to factory sevice repair info.
The outputs to the door lock actuators are controlled by the body control module (BCM). When the BCM receives a lock input from a door lock switch, or a keyless entry transmitter, it applies battery positive voltage to the door lock actuator lock control circuit, a ground to the door lock actuator unlock control, and the driver door lock actuator unlock control circuits. When the BCM receives an unlock input from a door lock switch, it applies battery positive voltage to the door lock actuator unlock control, the driver door lock actuator unlock control circuits, and a ground to the door lock actuator lock control circuit . When the BCM receives an single Unlock input from a keyless entry transmitter, it applies battery positive voltage to the driver door lock actuator unlock control circuit and a ground to the door lock actuator lock control circuit to unlock the driver door. A second Unlock input from the transmitter applies battery positive voltage to the door lock actuator unlock control circuit, and a ground to the door lock actuator lock control circuit to unlock the passenger doors.

This diagnostic procedure supports the following DTCs:
• DTC B3128 Left Front/Driver Door Unlock Circuit High
• DTC B3133 All Door Unlock Circuit High
• DTC B3138 All Door Lock Circuit High

How to get into programming mode to program a remote?

Few Toyota models came equipped with remote door locks before 2008 - surprisingly!

Your car may not have the radio receiver to work with door locks. In that case, you need the radio and some wireing to pair with your remotes.

I'm replacing the door handle on my 1999 Chev. Astro van...I closed the door and now it won't open..even the inside latch won't open the door

take the door card/trim off and put your hand inside and pull the cable or lift it at the back of the lock, you have not put it back correctly check the small bars are in the correct position. either way you will have to remove the door trim its an easy fix but can take a while depending on any lock covers or motors inside the door.

hope this helps

Looking for location of bcm on 97 astro van dash

The BCM is located immediately above the heater controls inside the dash on my 2004 Astro. I know it controls the headlights and locks but not gauges. Haynes says the gauge fuse supplies it power....but I'm not going to bank on that one.

Need location of power door lock relay on 2002 Astro. If someone knows, can you please help?

If your door locks are not working and your cigarette lighter is also not working the fuse is burned out. On my 2001 astro van it is #13 in the fuse box under the steering wheel. I have replaced mine and so far no problems. Good Luck.

How can i program the key less?

  1. Close all the vehicle doors.
  2. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder.
  3. Press and hold the DOOR unlock switch.
  4. While holding the DOOR lock switch in the unlock position, cycle the ignition ON, OFF, ON, OFF.
  5. Release the DOOR unlock switch. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm the program mode.
  6. Press and hold the LOCK button and the UNLOCK button simultaneously on one keyless remote. After a delay of approximately 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock to confirm the programming of that transmitter.
  7. Repeat the previous step to program up to four transmitters.
  8. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN (one more click forward) position in order to exit the keyless entry transmitter mode.
  9. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.

2004 chevy astro clicking in door locks during accelleration and interior lights flickering is sync

We got the problem to settle down for awhile by cleaning the lock contacts on the back slider. They didn't appear to be making a good connection, even when the door was closed tightly. It's just started doing it again, so I suspect the contacts have gotten corroded again.

2004 Civic Drivers door lock

The driver's side door lock button is designed not to lock from the inside unless the handle is pulled, or the power switch is used. This serves as a reminder to not lock your keys inside.

If you are inside, and push down on the button (not the switch) hard enough to lock it, you've probably damaged it.
