98 Buick park avenue, electric door locks work intermittently, lock while engine running and won't unlock!


Do you know how to use a wiring diagram an a DMM - digital multi-meter to test automotive electrical circuit's ? That's how one would go about solving a problem like this . Testing B+ power ,plus ground circuit's . Without testing the circuit's we'd only be guessing .Lock's are controlled by a electronic module. Could also have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored. Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html
Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on body & accessories ,then under subsystem click on power lock's . Click the search button then the blue link. Do the power windows work ?
The power door lock sub-system is comprised of the following components:
• The class 2 serial data link
• The door lock actuators (motors/manual levers)
• The power door lock switch
• The driver door module (DDM)
• The left front power door lock switch
• The passenger door module (PDM)
• The rear door module (RDM)
• The remote function actuator (RFA) module
• The right front power door lock switch
• The simple bus interface (SBI)

If you know nothing of the stuff i posted ,your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop.

Driver Door Module (DDM)
The driver's door module (DDM) directly controls the driver's door lock actuator motor. The DDM receives and forwards the driver's door switch lock request messages to the remote function actuator (RFA) via the serial data link. The RFA receives the request message and examines the message for lockout prevention criteria. If the conditions are proper, the RFA sends a lock or an unlock command message back to the DDM. The DDM forwards door lock messages received from the RFA to the passenger door module (PDM) and the rear door module (RDM) over a simple bus interface (SBI) line. The DDM also contains a class 2 serial interface which communicates with other vehicle system modules. The left front door power window and the outside power mirror are also controlled through the DDM. Battery voltage is always applied to the DDM through the retained accessory power (RAP) circuit breaker located in the underhood Maxifuse® block.

Could be a simple problem , but one never know's till they do all the testing .

2003 Cadillac STS door and truck lock quit working


I checked all the fuses and relays and all are in good shape???????
Did you check the correct one's ,that's the question ? And did you use a voltmeter or test light to check across the correct fuse's ? And how did you check the relay's ????? Videos on youtube on how to test a relay ! And using a wiring diagram or power flow diagram that shows all componets of the none working systems ., Plus you need to know how the thing's work . Data communication network is involved in the working of these thing's , Data messages from module to module !

The body control system consists of the following 3 modules:
• The Dash Integration Module (DIM)
• The Instrument Panel Module (IPM)
• The Rear Integration Module (RIM)
Rear Integration Module (RIM)
The various RIM inputs and outputs are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the RIM electrical schematics.
The RIM functions include the following:
• Automatic level control
• CIGAR relay control
• Class 2 communication requiring RIM interaction
• Content theft deterrent
• Fuel door control
• Fuel level sensor input
• Heated seat control
• HVAC blower control
• LK/CYL relay control
• Park brake relay control
• Rear defog relay control
• Rear park assist chime control
• Retained accessory power (RAP) relay control
• Reverse relay control
• Transmission shift inhibit
• Trunk release relay control
• Various controls for the interior lamps

Just looking at fuse's and relay's isn't enough ! Hooking up a factory scan tool an checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes in all the vehicle control modules is always the first step . Which fuse boxes did you check ? Do you know there is a fuse box under the back seat ?
Fuse Block - Rear
Left rear of the passenger compartment, under the rear seat !
The vehicle is equipped with power door locks. Each lock actuator is powered and controlled by the door module mounted in the individual door, but the rear integration module (RIM), which is the master control for the door lock system, determines when the lock functions are permitted. The RIM receives and examines the requested lock function from the individual door modules, or from the remote function actuator (RFA) via the class 2 serial data circuit. The RIM also examines the transmission shift selector position and the ignition switch position information available over the Class 2 serial data circuits. If the RIM determines that a lock or unlock function is permitted, it sends a class 2 message back to the individual door modules commanding them to perform that Lock or Unlock function.
Your best bet , take it to the dealer !

The two rear doors and the rear lift up hatch will


In the i/p fuse box there is 2 relays, a lock relay and an unlock relay. The relays should be the same. If the door lock actuators work in the lock position but not the unlock position try swapping the relays and see if the actuators will unlock the doors. You have a bad relay if this worked for you.

The only other part that is common to the circuits is the body control module. It controls the ground circuits to the lock relays. The control to the unlock side can be bad if the relay swap don't work.

Good luck

From the back of the front door slide your hand in the sliding door crack and find the child-safety-lever. Push the lever up and/or down while moving the sliding door manual lock/unlock button to the up position. Also works on the non-powered sliding door.

Electric door lock not working


Any of these three causes may apply to your situation of your driver's rear door not power locking, specifically the malfunctioning of the 1) relay system, 2) switch motor, or 3) the switch/button itself. Here's a handy diagnostic article that explains this:
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Locks_Power_Locks_Do_Not_Lock_When_Pressing_Locking_Switch_Button.htm

This should lead you to the correction of your door's failure to lock.

Central Locking


When you use your remote or insert your key in the Drivers Front door all the door locks should work at the same time by the door lock motors electrically. If you have to manually unlock the door because it will not lock or unlock by the lock motor, you need a door lock motor. The drivers and passengers front door can unlocked with the key manually. The rear doors you have to pull up the latch. If no doors unlock electrically with the remote or drivers door lock, intermittantly or all the time, you will need a Central Locking Electronic Control Module. You will hear the "beep" but no door locks will fire at all. If you have odd door locks not working intermittantly you need a new door lock motor for each door lock that malfunctions. You can hear of the door locks are working electrically. Yes, they are common problem. If you can hear the door lock working but the door still doesn't unlock you need to take the door panel off and lubricate the door latch assembly and work the lock, loosening it up. This is common as well.
