Question about 1997 Chevrolet Astro

1 Answer

Power door locks wont work and dosent seem to get enough power to drivers side window

Posted by on

  • chrissulliva Dec 06, 2008

    I have the same issue on a 97 AWD Conversion Astro.  I located the remote door lock module behind the radio and it clicks to the buttons I push locking, but not unlocking.  Seems like the Actuators through out the car do not get enough voltage to drive them up and down.  And the Drivers power window--- after you lower it, it takes 3 to 10 minute intervals of time to get it to go up and it only moves about 6 inches at a time at most.  Chris 610-724-9811 Anyone out there call me on this please.

    I agree as I also maintain a fleet of vans; 3 of which are Astro vans and I have the same issues. Buy a different van;

Buy a different van. I maintain a fleet of 10 Astros and the automatic door locks on all of them do not work. 5 of them have windows that don't work. The rear door handles on three of them have broken in half. The auto door latch in the 02 will not open.

Why wont windows and lock work? could it be the front ecu?


Check inside of door where wiring comes thru for broken wires ,ECU doesn't control windows or door locks. You didn't state what model vehicle you own. But opening and closing door on drivers side causes broken wires on numerous vehicles over the years, most makes and models. Split boot and check all wires inside for breakage.

Power lock and power windows dont work can`t find fuse


Number 21 is for the door lock fuse and relay, its a 10 amp fuse.
Number 7 is for the body control module, its a 10 amp fuse.

The fuse panel is under back seat.If all fuses checked out ok,then its faulty drivers door module called as DDM.

Door locks and power window


Just did this procedure I got from coloradofans.com forums:

"any type of power/voltage change seems to trigger this issue

The most common symptom is power locks fail and only the driver window quits, however that is on the extended cab.

Steps to fix and it works every time.

take door panel off driver's door
Disconnect the wiring attached to window and power lock control unit
disconnect battery cables
connect the negative to the positive cable(((NO BATTERY CONNECTED)))
This will act to short residual voltage in the system

5 minutes later
place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
connect the wiring to the window/lock controller
connect the negative cable to the battery
then the positive
open drivers side door
turn key to the off position((do not remove yet)) you should get a series of dings through speakers telling you the key is still in the ignition
once it begins dinging pull the key out and you should hear the door lock solenoids trigger and the windows should work." - Coloradofans.com forums

Check the wiring between the drivers door and the A pillar(the body of the car). Sometimes the harness breaks from opening and closing the door.
