SOURCE: Door lock

Run a diagnostic on the door lock system; To place the unit in "service mode", close the door completely then press and hold both the "Delicates" and "Heavy Soils" keys for three seconds. Motor speed will be displayed. Press "rinse" to access the main board output function. Then press "max extract"... this is the test for the door lock. Did it lock? To exit, press "max extract" again and then both "Delicates" and "Heavy Soils" for three seconds. VOLTAGE TESTS AHEAD!!! IF YOU AREN'T SURE YOU CAN DO IT, THEN DON'T! CALL A PROFESSIONAL! If the door did not lock, you'll need a voltmeter and an hour or so. Open the door, remove the screws holding the door hinges, then remove the 2 screws (and shims) opposite the door hinges and close the door (do not take it off). Then grasp the front panel at the top near where it meets the top panel and pull toward you quickly. Lean it forward and remove it from the 2 clips at the bottom. Just below the top panel, now exposed, are the top panel retainers... use a 5/16" to remove the one screw on both sides and remove the retainer clips. Now lift the top panel up just like the hood of a car. You can now see the door latch assy. Remove the 2 wires on the solenoid and insert your meter probes into each one of them (color doesn't matter). Set your meter to read AC Voltage, then re-enter "Service Mode" and follow the steps to door lock test. When you hit the "Max Extract" key, 120 volts should be sent to the meter. If you get 120 volts, your latch assy. has failed and should be replaced. If you don't get 120 volts, your control board output has failed and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the help, here is how I fixed mine. The net net is that you may have to desolder the two white relays first then solder them back. You will need a solder vac ($10 at radioshack) to remove the solder.

I followed the advise and first just added solder to the 2 white relays and 1 black relay and this did not work. I went to Granger and bought two new relays (black 10A/5A not 10A/10A) and this did not work still 6 weak relay clicks. I then took apart the door lock mechanism (very cool should have taken a picture) and still only got the six weak clicks. Finally, I put the two white relays back but switched their position, and by God's grace and mercy it instantly worked. No clicks from the relay, the door immediately locked and the machine started running. Oh by the way make sure you have the soap thing in if your wife takes it out to clean it while you are working or you will get a little wet.

With all that I did I can't say what exactlly worked except Prayer. I would excluded the actual door lock mechanism. I thought with us manually unlocking the door we may have jammed the mechanism but this was not true. The relays show to be the true culpret. Since this was my first ever soldering job it may be that. Or it may have been switching the relays. I would say resolder first, if that does not work swap the relays, and if that does not work try new ones. But if you just get the relay click you have not fixed it yet.

My 2009 Pontiac G5 started doing this about 3 months ago. On startup, the door locks make noise and it takes a while to shift out of park


Have the vehicle checked for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM - body control module . Everything is electroniclly controlled .
Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control Description and Operation
The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consists of the following components:
• The automatic transmission shift lock solenoid (serviced as the automatic transmission shift lock actuator), as well as the body control module (BCM) and the engine control module (ECM). The shift lock solenoid is located within the floor shift control assembly with vehicles equipped with floor shift.
• The BCM controls the voltage to the shift lock control solenoid through the shift lock control solenoid controlled voltage circuit. The following conditions must be met before the BCM will remove voltage from the shift lock solenoid:
- The ignition is in the ON position.
- The engine control module (ECM) sends an input via GMLAN serial data to the BCM indicating the transmission is in the PARK position.
- The BCM determines the brake pedal is applied according the brake pedal position.
Since the shift lock control solenoid is permanently grounded, the BCM supplies voltage to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid, mechanically locking the shift lever in the PARK position as the solenoid energizes. When the brake pedal is applied, the BCM turns the control voltage output of the shift lock control solenoid OFF, de-energizing the shift lock control solenoid. The de-energized solenoid releases the mechanical lock allowing the driver to move the shift lever out of the PARK position. When the transmission is out of the PARK position, the shift lock control solenoid remains de-energized.
During remote start operation, the BCM will energize the shift lock control circuit, locking the shift lever in the PARK position.

The BCM supplies and monitors a reference voltage to the door lock switch through the door lock switch lock/unlock signal circuit. The door lock switch also receives a constant ground source. If a door lock switch is placed in the lock position, the reference voltage is taken directly to ground and the BCM senses 0.0 volts on the signal circuit. If a door lock switch is placed in the unlock position, the reference voltage is taken to ground through a 15k ohm resister that is internal to the door lock switches and senses approximately 2.9 volts on the signal circuit. This is how the BCM determines what portion of the door lock switch was activated.

2006 GMC Envoy: I tested all of the fuses and all of them check out but my power locks, cabin lighting, dash panel lights, etc. aren't working.


Which fuse box ? Do you know what a DDM -is ? Driver door module . Do you have any idea what all is involved in making these thing's you have listed work ? A lot more then a fuse , there could be DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the principal Control module ,the BCM , That could save a tech. valubale time in diagnoising this problem !
Door Lock System Components
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
• Driver Door Module (DDM)
• Passenger Door Module (PDM)
• Liftgate Module (LGM)
• Door lock relay
• Door unlock relay
• Body Control Module (BCM)
• Reversible door lock actuators in each of the doors
• LR/RR LOCKS 10A fuse (relay supply voltage)
• Door lock switches in driver and passenger doors (switches are integral components to the DDM and PDM)
Did you know there is a fuse box in the rear of the vehicle ?
Fuse Block - Rear
Beneath the left rear seat
The inside lights are also controlled by the BCM , and the fuse's are also located in the rear fuse box .
The body control module (BCM) directly sends a 5-volt reference voltage to the instrument panel (I/P) dimmer switch which is then adjusted based on the I/P dimmer switch position and returned as a low reference and a signal to the BCM. The BCM uses this signal to directly control the desired level of instrument panel illumination lamp intensity.
DTC Descriptor
This diagnostic procedure supports the following DTC:
DTC B2620 Display Dimming Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Input Circuit. There are several DTC'S that can set !
DTC B3801 Passenger Compartment Lamp Request Circuit
DTC B2610 Passenger Compartment Dimming 1 Circuit plus others for power locks .
Thank You Uncle Sam

Door lock dont always work


What door lock doesn't always work ? One or all of them . This is a complex set up for these door locks ! The switch is an input to the BCM - body control module . There is logic involved in the microprocessor , there are relays built in to the BCM ! Could have a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the BCM ! Could be a bad connection at the BCM or master window switch ! A bad ground !
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
DOOR LKS fuse


?€¢
Driver door lock actuator


?€¢
Driver door lock switch


?€¢
GMLAN serial data link


?€¢
Keyless entry transmitter


?€¢
Passenger door lock actuator


?€¢
Passenger door lock switch


?€¢
Remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)


The DR LCK fuse supplies battery voltage to the body control module (BCM) for the power door lock system. The BCM supplies and monitors a reference voltage to the driver and passenger door lock switches through the door lock switch lock/unlock signal circuit. Each door lock switch receives ground at G300 which is also the ground for the door lock and unlock relays located in the BCM. When a door lock switch is placed in the lock position, the reference voltage is switched to ground and the BCM senses 0.0 volts on the door lock/unlock signal circuit. When a door lock switch is placed in the unlock position, the reference voltage is switched to ground through a 1.5k ohm resistor that is internal to each of the door lock switches and the BCM senses approximately 2.9 volts on the door lock/unlock signal circuit. The BCM interprets what position the activated door lock switch was placed in based on the voltage drop.
The BCM, upon receipt of a lock or unlock switch signal, will switch the appropriate door lock/unlock relay coil control circuit to ground causing the appropriate door lock/unlock relay to energize. With the relay energized, voltage is applied to the door lock actuator control circuit causing the door to either lock, or unlock depending on what command was received from the power door lock switch or remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). When a power door lock/unlock relay is not energized, the switch contacts are normally grounded through the BCM which provides ground to the appropriate door lock actuator for the lock/unlock function being performed. The power door lock/unlock functions are performed by reversing the flow of voltage through the door lock actuator control circuits. The BCM has three internal drivers for the power door lock system. Driver door unlock, passenger door unlock and all door lock. This is done to isolate the driver door lock actuator so it can be unlocked separately from the passenger door. For additional information concerning keyless entry, refer to Keyless Entry System Description and Operation.
This is one you may want to take to dealer or some other ASE certified repair shop ! To do this right you need a Tech 2 scan tool !
Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Door Lock Switch parameter while using the driver and passenger door lock switches. The parameter should change from Idle to Lock and Unlock.
?‡'
If the value does not change, refer to Door Lock Switch Malfunction.

Command the doors to LOCK and UNLOCK with the scan tool, the door lock actuators should LOCK and UNLOCK when changing between the commanded states.
?‡'
If one or more doors do not LOCK or UNLOCK, refer to Door Lock Malfunction.

What causes a malfunction in power locks?


The power door locks are controlled by the BCM -body control module ! The door lock switch is an input to the BCM .
The BCM, upon receipt of a door lock switch lock or unlock signal, will switch the appropriate door lock actuator control circuits to battery positive voltage. The opposing side of the door lock actuators are connected to ground internally within the BCM through the other door lock actuator control circuit and the doors will lock or unlock appropriately.
First thing to do would be check power an ground circuits at the BCM ! Do you have any other systems not working -power windows etc...
The DR/LCK fuse supplies battery positive voltage to the I/P fuse block for the door lock system. The body control module (BCM) supplies and monitors a reference voltage to the door lock switch through the door lock switch lock/unlock signal circuit. The door lock switch also receives a constant ground source. If a door lock switch is placed in the lock position or unlock position, the reference voltage is taken directly to ground and the BCM detects the voltage drop on the signal circuit.
Should have BCM checked for stored DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes !
Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Driver Door Lock Sw, Psgr Door Lock Sw, Driver Door Unlock Sw and Psgr Door Unlock Sw parameters while using the driver and passenger door lock switches. The parameters should change between Active and Inactive.
?‡'
If the values does not change between the commanded states, refer to Door Lock Switch Malfunction.

Command the driver door and passenger door lock actuators to LOCK and UNLOCK with the scan tool, the doors should LOCK and UNLOCK when changing between commanded states.
?‡'
If a door lock actuator does not perform the LOCK and UNLOCK functions, refer to Door Lock Malfunction

You might have a problem with either:
  • the control panel board: "start" button may be malfunctioning.
  • the pin on the door may be broken
  • there are 4 electronic control boards in this washer, and they're not so easy to check. Find the tech manual, it should be either behind the cover underneath the door or behind the top cover, diagnostics procedures should be described there.
Good luck.
