Depending on what type of lock it is, you will need to replace the whole cylinder. The door is a pressed over face and crimp installation. Not easily removed and reinstalled. Replacing the whole cylinder is pretty easy to do. If the hardware on the back is complex or hard to follow.... please take several pictures so you can reinstall correctly. Usually there is a clip holding the lock in place and a screw or rivet holding on the actuator hardware. If it's a rivet...then you will need to carefully drill it out, replace your cylinder, and then pop rivet it back in place.

Best of Luck,

Door locks

You can change auto door locks option in personal settings on the dash tacho button. If you don't have that option you can change them manually by getting in the car and closing all doors, put key into ignition and turn key from "lock" to "on" four times ending in the lock position, then press the power door lock button on drivers side door and then you should hear a chime to confirm the change.

My 2001 tahoe alarm keeps "auto" arming itself after about 30 seconds. How do I stop it from "auto" arming? Its driving me crazy

this alarm works with the remote and the key, if you lock with the key it arms if you lock with remote it arms,when you unlock it it should disarm, if your having a problem with it not working try the pass/side lock with key, that should shut it down but if it keeps rearming without locking doors then it may be aftermarket, also in your manualy it will show you that some factory alarms are also self arming this is programed through the cluster, using the buttons on the dash, you scroll through the options and shut off auto arming, this is done the same way you scroll for mileage or trip time or oil change life. hope this helps.

Do I need any special tools to remove and replace my worn lockset cylinder on my ford van? Is there an instructional video on line that anyone knows of?


I beleive you can do it, no need of special tools, a philips head screw dirver, needle nose pliers may be all you need.

raise the window all the way up
take the door panel and water shiel off
disconect the door latch to lock cilinder rod
use the needle nose pliers to remove retainer clip from door lock cilinder
remove door damaged lock cilinder by pushing it towards the outside.
instal the new lock cilinder making sure it is aligned an seated correctly.
push retainer clip into place.
Reconnect the lock cylinder rod to door latch.
check for proper oparation, if OK, instal watershield and door panel.

As you can see, it is a very simple task.

My 1987 Dodge Ramcharger, 318 Auto, 2wd has a rear door issue. It won't shut and latch properly the owner before me installed additional locks on either side to secure the door but they are ugly. Any way...

take a look at the latches, make sure they are grease good and all working,sometimes one of the latches freezes up, so the door is not completely latched,also you can adjust the striker to lock tighter,this is located on the body, at the top and bottom of the left side door,take a look and see if all latches are latching, use a screw driver to push them locked and see if latec will stay latched in the lock postion. good luck.

Hi, i have a door lock problem with a landrover discovery 1998. a) when i use the remote control the locks are clicking b) then the alarm sounds twice c) and all levers are popping up. d) situation...

It sounds like you have a problem with one of the door or bonnet switches. It acts that way when it thinks there is a door or the bonnet is open. Check all the switches for good contact.

Chevrolet 2500 crewcab - rear door auto lock shut off

try punching the remote lock button twice. experience with 4 door s-blazers shows that it has to be done twice to lock all 4 doors. also look for "child safety" switched for the rear doors that may be disabling remote locking for the rears.

2005 Toyota Tundra Lock problem

Auto-lock on the doors is the default setting. You dealer should be able to change this setting for you. If your current dealership cannot, then take it to another, presumably better, dealership.
