2005 Buick Rendezvous you can hear the relay clicking but the door locks will not open and close


Check for broke wires inside the boot from body to driver door , this is a common problem . If you don't find broke wire's , pull the door panel to get at driver door switch . Check for voltage an ground circuit .
Rendezvous Door Lock System Components
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
Driver door lock switch


?€¢
Front passenger door lock switch


?€¢
Door lock actuators in each of the doors


?€¢
Door lock system fuse into the BCM (BCM D 25A fuse)


Door Lock Operation
When the BCM detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the LOCK position, it switches the door lock actuator lock control circuit to voltage. Since the lock actuator unlock control circuits are at ground potential within the BCM, the door lock actuator motors transition to the Lock position.
Driver Door Unlock Operation
When the BCM detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the UNLOCK position, it switches the driver door lock actuator unlock control circuit to voltage. Since the door lock actuator lock control circuit is at ground potential within the BCM, the LF door lock actuator motor transitions to the Unlock position.
The driver door lock actuator unlock control circuit is a dedicated control circuit used only for the driver door lock actuator motor. This is done so that the driver door may be unlocked by itself using a keyless entry transmitter or an automatic door unlock function (if programmed).
Passenger Door Unlock Operation
When the BCM detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the UNLOCK position, it switches the door lock actuator unlock control circuits to voltage. Since the door lock actuator lock control circuit is at ground potential within the BCM, the passenger door lock actuator motors transition to the Unlock position.
The door lock actuator unlock control circuits are dedicated control circuits used only for the passenger door lock actuator motors. This is done so that the driver door may be unlocked seperate from the passenger doors using a keyless entry transmitter or an automatic door unlock function (if programmed).

Tip

The front light lit on my Whirlpool dryer is showing control locked


Hi.

If the front light lit is control locked, that means that your Whirlpool electric dryer had been set in control lock mode.

Control lock is a special mode that will prevent user from changing settings or using control until the dryer gets unlocked again.

The machine is set to control lock mode by holding down the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for several seconds. In the same way you can stop the control lock mode when the machine is already set to Control Lock.


When the dryer is running and Control Locked is on, the dryer can still be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

If the front light lit is control locked but the dryer door opens and it does not turn off, then you are probably in this situation. In that case, the door will be opening , but the machine still stays locked.

Disconnecting the machine from power, either unplugging power cord or tripping circuit breaker, won't help. The control lock system is designed to stay on in case of power failure.
If the machine is control locked, try unlocking it with the following procedure.

To unlock: Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn the control lock feature off.

If that does not work, try disconnecting power for five minutes to reset the machine, and eventually do unlock again. As said, cutting power alone will not cause the machine to unlock.


If the machine is still not responding, the lights stay on all the time, the dryer panel does not respond to control unlock procedure, and the door does not lock anymore, then it may be a defective control board.

If you are in this situation, before replacing the control board more parts, including the door lock must be tested. In that case the best option may be contacting the Whirlpool support number listed on the Dryer use and care manual, usually in the last pages.

In this case try resetting control lock as explained above, as told the dryer is more likely control locked and then stopped.


Regards.

Ginko.

Why 2006 Malibu door locks quit working but when put in gear they work


No ,it's not the actuators . It could be the BCM - body control module.

How to test computer controlled door locks
Each door lock switch is wired to the body control module (BCM) through a separate door lock/unlock signal circuit. While these circuits are separated between the BCM and respective door lock switch, they are connected into a single circuit within the BCM. The BCM supplies voltage through the door lock/unlock signal circuits to each door lock switch. When either door lock switch is operated, this supply voltage is pulled to ground, providing the BCM with the required lock or unlock signal. In order for the BCM to distinguish between a lock and unlock signal, the lock switch contains two separate paths for this voltage to flow to the same body ground. When the switch is operated to the unlock position, the supply voltage flows to ground through a 1.5 K ohm resistor. When the switch is operated to the lock position, the supply voltage flows to ground through a different part of the switch circuit, which has no resistor. The BCM then interprets the flow of voltage as a lock or unlock request and powers the door lock actuators to the appropriate lock or unlock position.
The BCM powers the reversible door latch assemblies by providing battery positive voltage and ground to the appropriate lock and unlock control circuits of the door latch assemblies. The Lock control circuits of the driver and passenger door latch assemblies are all connected together; however, the Unlock control circuits are connected in a slightly different way. While the unlock control circuits for the passenger door latch assemblies are connected together, the door latch assembly has a separate unlock control circuit. The system is designed this way so that the keyless entry transmitter may be used to unlock only the driver door. Despite this difference, all of the lock actuators perform much the same way. When the door latch assemblies are not active, all actuator Lock and Unlock control circuits are at ground potential within the BCM. Transitioning of the lock actuators to the lock or unlocked position depends upon which control circuits receive voltage and which control circuits receive ground.

Passenger door locks don't unlock.


You need to understand how they work , do you know about automotive electronic controls ? Your switches are just inputs to the BCM - body control module !
Door Locks Power and Ground
For door lock operation, the IP Fuse Block supplies battery positive voltage, through the 15 amp DR LK/TRUNK fuse, to the BCM. The BCM uses this circuit exclusively to apply power to the door lock actuators. The BCM is also supplied a ground circuit, which it uses exclusively to ground the door lock actuators. When a door lock is pulsed, the BCM internally connects these two circuits to the appropriate lock and unlock control circuits to actuate the locking or unlocking functions.
When diagnosing door lock malfunctions, these circuits must not be confused with the other battery voltage and ground circuits of the BCM. The appropriate wiring schematic must be used to locate the correct circuits. Failure to identify the correct battery voltage and ground circuits of the BCM during diagnosis of door lock concerns may result in misdiagnosis and unneccessary parts replacement.
Passenger Door Unlock Operation
When the BCM detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the Unlock position, it switches the door lock actuator unlock control circuits to voltage. Since the door lock actuator lock control circuit is at ground potential within the BCM, the passenger door lock actuators transition to the Unlock position.
The door lock actuator unlock control circuits are dedicated control circuits used only for the passenger door lock actuators. This is done so that the driver door may be unlocked individually before unlocking the passenger doors using a keyless entry transmitter or an automatic door unlock function, if programmed. When the keyless entry transmitter is used to unlock the passenger doors, the BCM requires a repeated unlock command before it performs the unlock function. However, when the unlock input is from a door lock switch, a single unlock command is all that is required to unlock all doors.

Control locked


Hi,

If you want to enable the Controls Lock/Unlock Feature:-
To enable the Controls Lock feature when dryer is running: Press and hold the CONTROLS LOCK/UNLOCK button for 3 seconds. The control is locked when a single beep is heard and the Controls Lock status light is on. This feature allows you to lock your settings to avoid unintended use of the dryer. You can also use the Controls Lock feature to avoid unintended cycle or option changes during dryer operation.

■When the dryer is off, it is not necessary to press the Control On button before activating the Controls Lock feature.

For unlocking: Press and hold the CONTROLS LOCK/UNLOCK button for 3 seconds to turn this feature off.

NOTE:- When the dryer is running and Controls Lock is on, the dryer can be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

Good Luck and have a nice day
