Question about 1999 Chevrolet Astro

1 Answer

Electric door locks fail after cycling lock/unlock a few times. Seems like some contact heating up and getting more resistive. A likely related problem - no power to dutch door (which cannot be opened without power. Fixed by hotwiring 12V to the door latch wiring. Is there a control module somewhere I can check for bad contacts? Other ideas? Thanks

    Sorry about the "solution" post, that was suppose to be under the same problem.



    Help is needed for a 2001 Astro rear window door lock with Dutch doors.

    How to get it open to repair/replace is the question.

    It engages but only releases the right side of the window hatch. We've tried pushing on the left side when trying to open the window hoping to release the latch, without success.

    There is no panel to remove to access the lock mechanism.

    Short of taking the vehicle to the dealer, is there a way of repairing this?

    Any help would be greatly aprreciated.

    Thanks

I recently had the same problem with my 2001 Astro.
I don't know how to get the door/hatch to open. Am looking for suggestions on how to at least get the window part to open so I can replace the part that has failed.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

How to get into programming mode to program a remote?


Few Toyota models came equipped with remote door locks before 2008 - surprisingly!

Your car may not have the radio receiver to work with door locks. In that case, you need the radio and some wireing to pair with your remotes.

1995 Jeep Grans Cherokee electric door locks not working when I hit the button they won't work. they make some sort of noise but they don't lock or unlock. only seems to lock the back hatch but...


Well, it is hard to say for sure without some electrical testing. It could be that you need to buy a whole bunch of door lock actuators - especially if you started losing one door lock at a time. If all of the door locks started acting up all at the same time, there is most likely high resistance in one of the door lock main power circuits - like the one that comes from the ignition switch or from the keyless entry module (if equipped).
Then on the other hand, if they LOCK OK, but do not want to UNLOCK (or visa-versa) there could be worn or burned contacts in either the lock relay or the unlock relay (or possibly even BOTH).

Again, some electrical testing should be done to pinpoint the actual cause of the problem before going out and spending a bunch of money on parts.

Why would my door handles (inside and out) intermittently fail and not open the doors.? I can see one door going out (mostly the passenger door) but at one time both failed and then by magic they start...


the mechanism at the door lock is not returning the park position that's why you can't open it try lubricating the lock, the return spring could be hanging up. worst case scenario you will have to remove the door panel and lubricate it from the inside. the lock is fine.

My driver side door wont open how do i get it


sounds like the door lach is sticking
use some wd40 spray the lock and let it sit 4 a while
now since you have the inside skin off reach inside the door with 1 hand and try and open the door from the outside and see if the lock bar moves it usualy pushes down i think on a lach
if it goes up and down with no resistance make sure it is contacting the lach if yes make sure the door is unlocked
somtimes the lock is just stuck
after unlock open the door
push down on lock bar attached to lock then pull up on it if that fails to open door
after that all fails unlock door have friend pull handle and then give the door a good kick from inside just remember not the kick the glass
