The doors lock when put my key in the ignition and start the car. I do not want this to happen. I have the car set to lock when I put it in drive but it still locks when I start it. What can I do to change...


In the owners manual there is a section dealing with customer selection options for the power door locks. Auto door locks can be set to off or can be set to work when the car is started or when put into gear or when achieving 9 mph. There are options for auto features for unlocking the doors also.

Problem with all door lock/unlock and dome light.


What fuse did you check ? 10amp body fuse in the I/P fuse box . Check for B+ voltage ,with a volt meter , on both sides of the fuse . Black lead to ground an touch the little metal tab's on top of the fuse one at a time . Should see battery voltage with the door open . If there is no voltage check the 30 amp batt fuse in the I/P fuse box . For the power locks did you check 20amp locks fuse located in the I/P fuse box ?

Power locks not working right


Hey, this might work.....get in truck, close doors, put key in ignition in lock position.....hold down the door lock button on driver side door control and wait for the lock control to be displayed on the information screen(odometer read-out).....it should say like lock 1, lock 2, lock 3, lock 4.....or something, I always reset mine to LOCK 1, to do this hold the odometer reset button on dash for a sec or two til it changes settings, then release, repeat till you get to LOCK 1, then quickly press and release odometer reset button to exit program, this is the function to lock doors over 15 mph and when out of park and to unlock doors when returned to park......yours' might be set to another function number....try it out, let me know if this helps.........good luck!

1998 Jeep Cherokee Internal locks and power locks Not working.


Open the door panels and lube all of your lock mechanisms. They tend to get stuck and it harms the locking motor. After I lube mine up, they freely move. Just spray some lithium grease and manually lock and unlock the door with the rocker until it moves very easily. You'll probably have to do this once a year like I do.

Power door locks


i would look at the backside of the power door lock switch for corrosion on the contacts (pins) and also the harness wires for the connector. Maybe the switch itself is just going bad.Honestly sounds like you have a shorted power wire that is touching just right with the vibration of the car. Probably is why it happens when you are driving.
Good luck
