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~

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.
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.

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.
