It is normal operation for the odometer to light up with the driver's door being opened. It is not normal for the chime to go off. The "Key-In Switch" in your steering column is malfunctioning. The body control computer "Thinks" the key is in the ignition when it is not. It usually requires a new key tumbler assembly to fix this.
There is disclosed a method of controlling an automatic door
opening/closing apparatus for a washing machine that includes the steps
of determining whether or not there is an error in an automatic door
opening or closing operation carried out in response to a command to
open or close the washing machine's door; determining if the erroneous
operation has been repeated more than a predetermined number of times
according to consecutive incoming commands to open or close the door;
and when erroneous operation has repeated more than the predetermined
number of times, ignoring a subsequent command to open or close the
1. A method of controlling an automatic door opening/closing apparatus
for a washing machine door, the method comprising the steps of:
determining whether or not there is an error in an automatic door
opening or closing operation which operation is carried out in response
to a command to open or close the washing machine door;
determining if the erroneous operation is repeated more than a
predetermined number of times according to consecutive incoming
commands to open or close the washing machine door; and in the
event that the erroneous operation is repeated more than the
predetermined number of times, ignoring a subsequent command to open or
close the washing machine door.
2. A method as set forth in claim 1, further comprising the step of: returning the door to the washing machine to an original position in the event that the error occurs.
3. A method as set forth in claim 1, wherein the step of determining if
there is an error in an automatic door opening or closing operation is
performed on the basis of whether or not an inversion occurs in an
open/closed state of the door within a prescribed period of time after
an automatic door opening or closing operation is initiated.
4. A method as set forth in claim 1, further comprising the step of:
clearing the number of errors in the case where the door of the washing
machine has been opened or closed manually at the time of occurrence of
5. A method as set forth in claim 1, wherein said predetermined number is 3.
6. A method for controlling the operation of an automatic door
mechanism in a washing machine, said method comprising the steps of: sensing a command to automatically open or close a washing machine door;
sensing whether a failure occurs in opening or closing the door in
response to the command to automatically open or close the door; incrementing a counter indicating the failure; determining whether the counter is equal to a predetermined number; and
failing to engage the automatic door mechanism in response to a
subsequent a command to automatically open or close the door if the
counter exceeds the predetermined number.
7. The method claimed in claim 6, further comprising the step of: returning the door to an original position if a failure is detected.
8. The method claimed in claim 6, wherein failure is indicated by a
lack of a transition between a door open state and a door closed state
within a predetermined time period following entry of the command to
automatically open or close the door.
9. The method claimed in claim 6, further comprising the step of: clearing the counter if the door is opened or closed manually following a failure indication.
One of the doors "thinks" it is open.That will make light stay on, power door locks will not operate and alarm will not arm itself. If the indicator shows which door is open, then check on the door frame for the door ajar pin / switch. Move it by hand repeatedly to see if it is stuck or misaligned. If unable, then pull the pin out to check the connection, and if still no help, then bridge (short) the cables to see if dome light goes out. If this is the case, then replace the pin.
The indicator light is turned on and off when the door depresses a black button in the door jam. Similarly there's a button on the rear tailgate and rear window.
Try opening the tail gate and closeing it firmly. Do the same with the rear window.
If all these fail to operate the warning light properly the most likely problem is a short circuit. You should have this fixed ASAP as it will drain your battery.
When any door or the liftgate is opened, the ajar switch provides a ground signal to the smart junction box (SJB). When the door or liftgate is closed, the ajar switch opens, removing the ground signal. The SJB uses the multiple inputs from the ajar switches to determine whether the doors or the liftgate are in the open or closed position. The SJB then provides a message to the instrument cluster over the communication network. The message center uses this information to display the door/liftgate ajar message.
I suspect your door switch is not closing all the way.
Either or do one of two things if the motor runs pretty well Start the engine and run it full throttle. Once there if it has a high speed jet turn the screw in to start with until the engine stumbles a bit and then turn it back about a half turn. When you turn it in you should here the engine peak out. .If it is blowing black smoke out the exhaust it means the high speed screw is to far out so turn it in until it smooths out.If the engine smooths out then you have cured the problem. Good luck.
Power Door Lock Operation (Front Doors)
The front doors do not have traditional door lock actuators. They have electronically controlled door latches that will operate depending on the status of the door lock system. This status is determined by the front door modules and the last known state of the lock system. If the last known state is LOCK, the latches will not release when the door handles are operated. If the last known state is UNLOCK, the latches will release when the door handles are operated. The front doors are also equipped with red door lock status indicators. The front door modules will supply power and ground to the indicators to illuminate them when the lock system is in a virtual state of lock. The indicators will not continuously illuminate when the vehicle is locked. They will illuminate for approximately 5 seconds after a lock switch activation or after a door handle has been operated and the front door modules are in a virtual state of lock. For further information on the front door latches, refer to Power Door Latch Description and Operation .
I would assume they check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ?
DTC B3062 Front Door Key Lock Switch Circuit
• DTC B3067 Front Door Key Unlock Switch Circuit
DTC B3849 Exterior Door Handle Switch Circuit
The left front exterior door handle and right front exterior door handle switch signal circuits provide inputs to the driver door module (DDM) and passenger door module (PDM) when an exterior door handle switch is activated. These inputs allow the door module to detect a door open request. The door modules provide voltage to the door handle switches. If the door module detects that a ground is applied for greater than 30 seconds continuously, a DTC is set and the door module will ignore the door handle switch input.
