2006 Dodge Stratus, driver side door lock actuator not getting power. Replaced actuator didn't work. Need location of the relay wiring to try that next?


Nick:
I would not go and fix the relays: those are inside the BCM or "Body Control Module" located under the dashboard to the extreme left or driver's side. Believe me, it is a nightmare to remove from the car and very expensive to repair at specialist shops.
In my 2002 Stratus Sedan R/T Turbo (Mexico), the door locks started to ignore the door switches or the remote at about two years from new, but as it was an intermittent failure, I didn't go to the dealer to fix it under warranty. But after two more years and just out of warranty, the failure was more frequent. After six years of use, all the doors were ignoring the commands from either the door mounted switches or the remote.

The thing is, "modern" cars are designed with too much reliance on software and computerized modules to perform simple tasks previoulsly done with simple wiring and relays. This is the case with the door lock actuated by a BCM. In the older Spirit, LeBaron, Reliant etc. generation designs, you had three wires to the small motor actuating the door lock mechanism. But some "too-intelligent" so called automotive designers decided a "better idea": to multiplex the lock/unlock commands on only two wires, "saving" a few feet of copper wires, but requiring the use of a complex Module, that ends up being much more costlier, heavier and unreliable! (but in that way the too-intelligent software (ab)using designers were happy).

I solved my problem by disconnecting the door locks wiring to the BCM and paid a much lower price to a technician that installs cheap car alarms that have their own remote control. In that way i saved about $350 USD... you decide what to do! Best Luck, Amclaussen.

My Intelligent Key Port is broken. What do I do? It will not charge my Intelligent Key.


The port doesn't charge it, it is only there for if your battery dies and then you can still start the car, you need to replace the battery in the fobs if they are low.

Have you replaced the battery lately? If so , you could have a bad battery in your key. It is a small microchip in some cares and will effect unlocking and starting the car if the battery is weak or dead.

82 benz trunk wont open dead baterry


If you use the key to lock all the doors, the trunk locks also, so if you have a dead battery, you probably don't have vaccuum to open the locks, because all the locks are vaccuum activated. Charge or change the battery and start it up, after a few minutes you should be able to activate the door locks, thus unlocking your trunk.

Good luck...

You are going to need to check the power lock control moduel on the inside of the door panel. If the FOB appears to be working but the doors are not unlocking, you need to check this. I would also replace all fuses that control the locks. If both of these devices check out ok, you may need to replace your FOB. To check your power lock control moduel, manually lock and unlock your doors by pressing the lock button on the inside of the door. If it does not work, it is either the fuses or the power lock control moduel. If it works, your FOB has gone bad. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

I have a 2000 VW Golf GTI. The issue that I have is that the battery is completely dead and now I can't unlock any of the doors. Is there a way to over ride the system so I can unlock the car?


you should still be able to use the keys to open the car. if you use a remote fob regularly then it is possible that the locks have seized up due to lack of use. spray the locks with a penetrating lubricant spray and leave them for a while before trying the keys again. you may have to do this quite a few times to free the locks. once free, the locks should be sprayed and opened and closed using the key at least every month to prevent them sticking again.

there is a way to get power to the car to use the remote fob on the central locking.
using jump leads or a battery booster pack, you have to go underneath the car and connect the +ve (red) jump lead to the thick wire (10mm approx) coming from the started solenoid to the battery. do this BEFORE connecting the -ve (black) lead to a good earth point under the car.
as the thick wire from the starter solenoid goes directly to the battery, the effect will be the same as connecting jump leads to the battery itself. this should give you enough power to operate the key fob and open the doors.

try this and contact us again if there are any further problems arising from the dead battery.

Have you checked the battery at all? you may have just left the lights on and flattened the battery. Try charging the system first, and check the underhood fuses. situated near the battery. Hope this helps.

The key should work even if there is no battery in vehicle. Have you tried both doors (or all doors with locks) Do you live where the temp is below freezing - could be frozen shut or locks frozen?

Nissan Sylphy Intelligent-Car Remote Controller Not Working


Hi,
Some key fobs are coded and if this is so you will need to take it to your Nissan dealer with all details of the vehicle i.e. Log book/title and vin number proof of ownership. There may be a small charge for this.
Good Luck!
Press the Blue Button please when satisfied with my FREE effort, Thank You!
