    I have the same problem. It is intermittent so I do not believe it is a fuse. I have no idea what it is and apparently neither do the dealerships I have talked to. I have seen many posts with people having the same problem but nobody has a solution.

Xj8 door lock


You need to replace the lock actuator in the doors that are not locking/unlocking with the door switch/remote. If the remote works for most of the doors then it is fine. The actuator is what moves the lock when it gets the signal from the remote or door switch to move it.
Good luck

2002 Expedition driver door won't lock/unlock with remote


This sounds like you may have a bad lock actuator, there is an actuator that controls the lock, it may need replacing, you will need to remove the door panel to gain access to it, then with a testlight you will test to make sure the actuator is getting power and a ground and if it tests good for power and ground then replace it and door lock will start working again, this part is about 30.00 dollars. here is a picture of it. good day3_10_2013_6_17_11_pm.jpg

Power door lock switch?


Sounds like the drivers door lock switch is bad an as far as the auto start remote the contacts under the button get dirty and won't make contact, open the remote like changing the battery and you can probably get at the contact button, if it's a little carbon button they can be cleaned with a pencil eraser and then paper tower with a bit of rubbing alcohol, if it's an actual switch you can try spraying some contact cleaner into the switch. let it dry before you put the battery back in.

The doors will not lock or unlock from the door but will from the remote?


The title suggest the door won't unlock unless the remote is used but during the summer it was the inverse. If while inside the car the doors will not lock or unlock from the door but will from the remote then you have a faulty switch.If while outside the car the key turns while in the lock but the door won't lock or unlock then the linkage at the end of the lock is faulty. You'll need to remove the door inside plate to check this.

I have two 2003 honda pilot remotes for the doors and they are not working on all doors they will lock all doors but the left front door and will not ove any. should i reprogram the remotes


This is not a problem with the remotes. It probably doesn't work with the door lock switch either. I had the same problem and it is the power lock actuator. The problem is that the replacement part it is not just an actuator - It is the whole door latch. I replaced mine and you will need a hand impact driver to remove the 3 screws that hold the latch on the edge of the door. The Haynes manual will give you the steps with some pictures.

Keyless Entry and Remote


I have had this problem take you drivers door put your key and un-lock from the out side with key (NO) then open the door push un-lock from the inside button and then set from you remote and it should set if not push un-lock then lock and then do the un-lock with the key. Let me know if that works. what my car did was locked from the inside and I had the problem were it would not work till I un-locked from the out side plus I had to go to radio shack and change the battery from the control.
Hope good happens.

2001 Hyundai Elantra door locking problem


there is a short or a signal from the un-locking switch that is triggering your locks.

you have a switch manually to lock and un-lock your doors, the unlocking circuit is making contact.

you can try playing with your switch to un-short the switch or open it up ang check it.
