Grinding noise when doors lock/unlock

When the doors lock/unlock, either by using the keyless remote control, the switch on the door or by engaging the gearshift in Drive, there is a loud grinding noise in the driver side door.
The car is equipped with keyless entry too.

Well the motor that locks the door is either breaking or either the wire or some part that moves is rubbing on something else. Take off the inner door panel and find the Exact location of the noise and you can replace the part. The door panel will be held on with screws and removable tabs that should pop out. Let me know if you get stuck. the parts can be bought at a dealer or gotten from a salvage yard

check www.car-parts.com for the nearest salvage yard if you want to go that route

my best to you

Where are the fuses for the power dock locks on a 2006 montecarlo06ss


DR/LCK fuse 25 amp . located in the I/P block
Fuse Block - I/P
In the right front kick panel

Power Door Locks System Components
The power lock system consists of the following components:
• Body control module (BCM)
• Driver door lock cylinder switch
• Front passenger door lock cylinder switch
• Driver door lock switch
• Front passenger door lock switch
• Door lock actuators in each of the doors
• DR LK Fuse 20-amp
Door Lock System Controls
The Power Door Lock System is controlled by the body control module (BCM) and can be activated by any one of the following:
• A door lock switch lock or unlock actuation
• A door lock cylinder switch unlock actuation
• A keyless entry transmitter actuation
• An automatic door lock actuation (Personalization function)
• An automatic door unlock actuation (Personalization function)
Door Lock Operation
When the body control module (BCM) detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the lock position, it switches the door lock actuator lock control circuit to voltage. Since the lock actuator unlock control circuits are at ground potential within the BCM, the door lock actuator motors transition to the lock position.
Driver Door Unlock Operation
When the body control module (BCM) detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the unlock position, it switches the driver door lock actuator unlock control circuit to voltage. Since the door lock actuator lock control circuit is at ground potential within the BCM, the left front (LF) door lock actuator motor transitions to the Unlock position.
The driver door lock actuator unlock control circuit is a dedicated control circuit used only for the driver door lock actuator motor. This is done so that the driver door may be unlocked by itself using a keyless entry transmitter or an automatic door unlock function (if programmed).
Passenger Door Unlock Operation
When the body control module (BCM) detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the unlock position, it switches the door lock actuator unlock control circuits to voltage. Since the door lock actuator lock control circuit is at ground potential within the BCM, the passenger door lock actuator motors transition to the unlock position.
The door lock actuator unlock control circuits are dedicated control circuits used only for the passenger door lock actuator motors. This is done so that the driver door may be unlocked separate from the passenger doors using a keyless entry transmitter or an automatic door unlock function (if programmed).

The keyless entry system consists of the following components:
  • driver door module (DDM)
  • keyless entry transmitter
  • keyless entry keypad
The driver door module (DDM) receives inputs from the digital transmission range (TR) sensor, ignition switch, brake switch, window/door lock switches, lighting control module (LCM), keyless entry keypad switch and remote transmitter. The DDM outputs consists of keyless entry keypad switch illumination, power door lock actuators, luggage compartment release solenoid, horn relay, and lighting control module (LCM).
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuses:
    • circuit breaker 7 (20A)
  • Central junction box (CJB)

B1751 Park/Neutral Switch Circuit Short to Battery DDM Go To Pinpoint Test K . B2425 Remote Keyless Entry Out of Synchronization DDM Go To Pinpoint Test L Need a professional grade scan tool to check fro these codes . Not a code reader for OBD2 codes .
  • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
  • Remote transmitter not programmed.
  • Remote transmitter.
  • DDM.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test F .

Did you program the new key fob ?

Remote Transmitter Programming NOTE: All remote transmitters are programmable and must be set at the same time.
  1. Turn the key from OFF to RUN four times within three seconds, ending in RUN. The locks will then lock and unlock, confirming program mode has been entered.
  1. Press any button on each remote transmitter to be programmed. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm that each remote transmitter has been programmed.
  1. If additonal remote transmitters are to be programmed, repeat Step 3 within 7.5 seconds or steps 2 and 3 if more than 7.5 seconds have elapsed.
  1. To exit program mode, turn the ignition to START or wait 7.5 seconds.
  1. NOTE: Failure to wait at least 20 seconds will cause programming failures. Wait at least 20 seconds after turning the key to OFF or after the last remote transmitter has been programmed to activate a remote transmitter for testing or verification

I went through programing as far as lock recycling but wont go any further


Remote Transmitter Programming NOTE: All keyless entry remote transmitters must be programmed at the same time.
NOTE: Programming (or reprogramming) the keyless entry remote transmitters into the central security module can be accomplished using a diagnostic tool or by carrying out the following steps.
  1. Turn the ignition switch from OFF to RUN eight times within 10 seconds, ending in RUN. If the module has successfully entered program mode, it will lock and then unlock all doors.
  1. Within 20 seconds, press any button on a keyless entry remote transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock to confirm that each keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed. Repeat this step for each transmitter.
  1. If the door locks do not respond for any keyless entry remote transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to respond, refer to Inspection and Verification.
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, or wait up to 20 seconds after Step 2, to exit program mode. If a keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed (or reprogrammed), the doors will lock and unlock one last time to confirm.

Door lock dont always work


What door lock doesn't always work ? One or all of them . This is a complex set up for these door locks ! The switch is an input to the BCM - body control module . There is logic involved in the microprocessor , there are relays built in to the BCM ! Could have a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the BCM ! Could be a bad connection at the BCM or master window switch ! A bad ground !
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
DOOR LKS fuse


?€¢
Driver door lock actuator


?€¢
Driver door lock switch


?€¢
GMLAN serial data link


?€¢
Keyless entry transmitter


?€¢
Passenger door lock actuator


?€¢
Passenger door lock switch


?€¢
Remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)


The DR LCK fuse supplies battery voltage to the body control module (BCM) for the power door lock system. The BCM supplies and monitors a reference voltage to the driver and passenger door lock switches through the door lock switch lock/unlock signal circuit. Each door lock switch receives ground at G300 which is also the ground for the door lock and unlock relays located in the BCM. When a door lock switch is placed in the lock position, the reference voltage is switched to ground and the BCM senses 0.0 volts on the door lock/unlock signal circuit. When a door lock switch is placed in the unlock position, the reference voltage is switched to ground through a 1.5k ohm resistor that is internal to each of the door lock switches and the BCM senses approximately 2.9 volts on the door lock/unlock signal circuit. The BCM interprets what position the activated door lock switch was placed in based on the voltage drop.
The BCM, upon receipt of a lock or unlock switch signal, will switch the appropriate door lock/unlock relay coil control circuit to ground causing the appropriate door lock/unlock relay to energize. With the relay energized, voltage is applied to the door lock actuator control circuit causing the door to either lock, or unlock depending on what command was received from the power door lock switch or remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). When a power door lock/unlock relay is not energized, the switch contacts are normally grounded through the BCM which provides ground to the appropriate door lock actuator for the lock/unlock function being performed. The power door lock/unlock functions are performed by reversing the flow of voltage through the door lock actuator control circuits. The BCM has three internal drivers for the power door lock system. Driver door unlock, passenger door unlock and all door lock. This is done to isolate the driver door lock actuator so it can be unlocked separately from the passenger door. For additional information concerning keyless entry, refer to Keyless Entry System Description and Operation.
This is one you may want to take to dealer or some other ASE certified repair shop ! To do this right you need a Tech 2 scan tool !
Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Door Lock Switch parameter while using the driver and passenger door lock switches. The parameter should change from Idle to Lock and Unlock.
?‡'
If the value does not change, refer to Door Lock Switch Malfunction.

Command the doors to LOCK and UNLOCK with the scan tool, the door lock actuators should LOCK and UNLOCK when changing between the commanded states.
?‡'
If one or more doors do not LOCK or UNLOCK, refer to Door Lock Malfunction.

How do i reprogram electronic door locks


Programming Electronic Door Lock Control System NOTE: The electronic door lock control processor (14B001) erases all previous keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601) from memory when the keyless entry remote transmitters are programmed or reprogrammed. The electronic door lock control processor can store up to four keyless entry remote transmitters in memory.


  • To program (or reprogram) keyless entry remote transmitter into the electronic door lock control processor, perform the following steps:
  1. Turn ignition switch to the RUN position and momentarily short the two terminals of the program connector taped to the wire assembly and located behind the glove compartment. All doors should lock and then unlock. Remove shorting pin.
  1. Press any button on keyless entry remote transmitter. All doors should lock and then unlock to verify the keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed. If door locks do not respond, press button again (up to three times maximum with the same keyless entry remote transmitter).
  1. Repeat the above step to program additional keyless entry remote transmitters into the electronic door lock control processor (up to four keyless entry remote transmitters maximum).
  1. Turn ignition switch OFF. All doors should lock and then unlock.
  1. Check operation.

98 Jeep how do you disengage alarm. Only have one remote


there is no way to do that being that the factory alarm is controled by the BCM (body control module) your only option is to go to the dealer and buy two new remotes and have them set to the frequency of your vehicle.
