Bravada Door Locks

I have a 1997 Oldsmobile Bravada. The last three or four days when I go to lock the doors (either with the fob or the button on the door), after I've been driving it, There is a buzzing noise and the doors won't lock. About five minutes later they lock and unlock normally. This is starting to drive me crazy. Anybody know what's happening?

    A friend checked the breaker fuse that controls the locks and the remote key. It was burning hot. The people at the local auto store said that when this breaker is almost ready to go out it will behave this way. The sad thing is that none of the auto supply stores had this particular breaker in stock. And one store couldn't even find the part number in it's computer system. This breaker fits on blazers and jimmys as well as bravadas.

Our 2001 Mazda MPV doors are not locking. Before, we were able to lock all doors just by locking manually locking from the inside on the driver side and using the remote keyless entry. Now, when we try...

The clicking you hear is the vehicle asking for the program sequence to reprogram the locking system. Apparently something threw it out of sequence, ( a battery change , jumpstart, voltage spike , etc). The programming sequence that mazda uses is really kinda crazy. I was able to locate the sequence to try. If it does not work have the dealership flash the pcm, (another word for reprogram the powertrain control module). Here is the sequence:
1) Get in MPV with ignition key, and all fobs for the vehicle.
2) Close all doors and remove ignition key if it is in ignition.
3) Open driver's door
Note: Steps 4 and 5 must be completed in under thirty seconds.
4) Repeat the following three times
a) Insert ignition key
b)Turn ignition switch to on and then to lock
c) Remove ignition key
5) Repeat the following three times
a) Close driver's door
b) Open driver's door
Locks should all lock and then unlock within a couple of seconds--you'll hear the clicking sound
6) Press any button two times within five seconds on fob being programmed.
Locks should again lock and unlock
7) Repeat step 6 for all other fobs being programmed. When done with last fob, wait a few seconds and then you should be done with the reprogramming. Each fob should now work for this vehicle.

I cannot program my keyless remotes

if the fob is not for mercury it wont work make sure when buying that it is compatible with your car make and model, look online for instruction how to program your fob keyless remote.
  1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 5 times within 10 seconds, with the 5th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode.
  2. Within 20 seconds, press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.
  3. Within 20 seconds press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will cylcle to confirm programming.

Door unlock then locks itself

try the other fob.
the buttons on fobs can short.(its just a plastic membrane with carbon pad in the fob and can go bad.(cracks or crumbles inside...........)
so put the suspected fob far away from car, and use the good new fob. work now, and a new FOB battery, too.
if you only have one fob, now's the time to get the spare.
no fob lasts forever. not not ever.

Rear door on 97 bravada can't be unlocked to open

No easy way to do this - you need to remove the inside door panel from inside the truck and manually release the lock. You didn't say where the wiring was burnt, but when the door is open test for power at the lock solenoid - if not there when unlock is pressed, inspect the wiring (particularly at the two rubber wire casings connecting the door to the frame). If it is there, the lock solenoid is stuck and may have to be replaced.
