    rear door won't open, lots of unlatching noises, window opens. All the interior lights were on and I went through the fuse box and got them off, but the door remains stuck.

    I am having the exact same problem for the first time today. My Jeep is dead right now, the battery is completely drained but that clicking noise on the back door keeps going every time I put the key in the ignition. Does this just mean I need a new battery? And if so, can I stop the door from doing that? Otherwise it will just drain another perfectly good battery, right?

    I saw in another post you could pull the fuse to open the door, would that be in the manual? Any help would be appreciated!

There is a small plastic access door in the interior just opposite the rear door handle. Pry that open with a flat screwdriver and reach as far as you can towards the passenger side (staying the same level as the access door). There is a small light switch shaped lever that will release the lock and allow it to be opened from the outside.

Rear river side power door lock on 2006 hyundai sonata not working. Power locks working on all other doors. Is this a faulty power lock actuator for that specific door?

Yes, probably, but before you pull off the inner panel, check for broken wires in that rear door opening. You might luck out and find a broken wire for the lock. Then probably won't have to pull the inner panel off.

2003 jeep sports liberty door locks clicking draining battery

AAA guys dont fix car, they rescue them....
the door lock system is broken
you have 2 choices. may be 3
  1. Take it to any ASE mech, and he fixes,it.
  2. Get the FSM from JEEP open the page on DOORS, and do the tests shown there.
  3. Using SAME FSM defeat the DOOR system. using keys.
#3 may just be a fuse pull, ill look that up now for you. ....lets see...
what id do.
id check all fuse first for blown, with an ohmmeter, 0=good, infinity = bad.
then id pull all the door relays. in the main junction box.
is the battery drain gone (i use and ammeter to find that truth)
THE BCM (body control module ) runs the locks, so you can just
pull its fuses.. or other things die.

keep in mind that door locks are alive , keys in pocket.
so that begs the question, is the BCM messing up (or relays stuck)
or is the BCM being told to open a door, full time ?
id connect any scan tool to the OBD2 conn. and see if there are fault codes. (like relay stuck door, etc)
stuck switch for doors."called door lock switch mux" by Jeep.
The BCM has many relay that it controls, pull them all and see
which one is causing the DRAIN, key off
and work backwards from there.
the BCM has RKE data line, this is the remote key receiver.
if it goes nuts it might seen door commands to the BCM full time.
so unplug it, to see if the commands end.
its called the RKEM (m for module)

the problem focus is the BCM is the brain that runs it all.
it has inputs and outputs.
the brain (processor) can have a bad input (switch or RKE)
or the output can stick (prime target door relays)
that is it .
i cant find the JB B+ hot feed, drawing, there are over 50 pages on this JB. a real FSM would win here. to find the door power actual feed .
such is life, in newer complex cars....

see that.

My 1993 olds cutless ciera S powerlocks keep clicking unlocking and locking the door when car is off draining the battery

You will probably need to take your Cutless into an auto electrician. Until you can take it in, I suggest disconnecting the battery when you aren't driving. This way the battery won't be drained. It is usually simply a matter of unscrewing the cord connecting to the battery. It can be found in the driver's manual or online if you need to know which cord to disconnect.

Power window on driver side stopped working and the door locks stopped working . Also this morning the battery was dead but nothing was left on.

It sounds like you may a faulty door lock switch. If you pushed the switch to lock the doors and the switch stuck and kept door lock solenoids energized, that would drain the battery. It would also keep the door locks from unlocking, as to why window don't work it could all be on the same fuse or circuit breaker. Usually the power windows are on an automatic reset circuit breaker. Do you hear click and a short time later another click (with the battery charged)? If so that the circuit breaker tripping then resetting. Good luck!

Battery go dead after sitting for about 6 hours

first unhook the battery cable and wait 6 hours. If the battery is still charged when you hook it back up then start pulling fuses or relays. That car has so much electrical stuff it will take awhile to pin it down. One thing could be the seatcontrol box under the seat. It controls seat heat, power seats, memory seat. Do the power door locks work ok? A bad switch can drain the battery. How about rear leveling system. Leaky air shocks can make the pump run while the car is sitting. If you can't figure it out get a battery disconnect.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee alarm keeps randomly going off.

this happened to me recently with my 96 grand cherokee. the battery got drained by the alarm going off randomly at night. i pulled the fuse for the horn so at least my neighbors would only be bothered by flashing lights. then i couldn't jump the car because the alarm was still going off. i hooked my car to jump it to another car, and then i had to deactivate the alarm first by putting my key in the driver side door and unlocking the car. then i left it hooked to another car and still getting power but didn't jump it for at least 5 minutes in case the computer needed to reset. then it jumped fine. from what i've read online, this is a common problem that can be avoided if you stop using the power locks and always manually lock and unlock the doors with your key. its a little annoying, but apparently the power locks are connected to the alarm issue. hope the same works for you.
