Question about Locks & Locksmithing

1 Answer

The keyless switch lights dim and the door will not operate. I found a broken wire, repaired it and the door operated one time and is back to doing the same thing -- light dimming and the door will not open.

What part do I need to replace to get the lights to work on a Craftsman garage door opener?


Sounds like a broken or disconnect wire. At least start their. Unplug operator. Take the cover/shroud off, using a bright flash light check all the wires for breaks or disconnects. Repair or reconnect. Also check the bulb screw housing are connect on the back side.

Rocker switches,nor remote will lock or unlock doors fuse good


So , the power door locks won't lock or unlock with switches inside the vehicle or with the keyless entry remote fob.??? Is this correct ????
Do you know what a BCM - body control module is ? Do you know what diagnostic trouble codes are ? If not your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a GM dealer or someother qualified repair shop.
DTC B3142 or B3143
The body control module (BCM) provides an output to the driver switch assembly through the door unlock control circuit for controlling automatic door unlock, anti-lockout, and keyless entry unlock functions.
DTC B3152 or B3153
It could be the driver door master switch , could have broken wires inside the rubber boot from the body to the door . Do the power windows work ?
The keyless entry system has the following main components:
• The transmitters
• The body control module (BCM)
When you press a button on a transmitter, the transmitter sends a signal to the BCM. The BCM interprets the signal and activates the requested function.

How did you do this ,,checked and made sure locks and remote programmed,they were,but still do not work ?????

Need a scan tool to program
Important: All key fobs must be programmed each time any one fob is programmed. The scan tool must stay connected until all of the transmitters are programmed.
Install a scan tool and navigate to the BCM Module Setup menu.
Select Program Key Fobs.
Follow the scan tool on-screen directions.
When the programming operations have completed, operate the transmitter functions to verify correct system operation.

Door switch wiring


Hi Louis, The courtesy light switch is wired as follows. Power goes to the light. The light is then grounded through either the switch on the light or via each of the door switches. The reason for the interior light to remain on is that one of the door switches is worn and grounding all the time. look for a broken switch or one which is rough when operating. Regards John

We have changed the dimmer switch, but when I have to change my lights from dim to bright my lights go out. This was happening before we changed the dimmer switch, but was not as bad. Last night when I had...


I had a similar problem with my Camry that the light will go out when I go from dim to bright. I found that in the dimmer switch contacts there is a small plastic piece that runs through one or two contact to operate a set of contact. Mine was broken. Seeing that you have a new switch it could be that yours are maybe not correctly in place - that is if it works the same as a Camry's.

Passenger window operates intermittingly. When it


The problem could be in the master window switch on the drivers door, or the window motor could be going out, but most likely the cause is a broken wire inside of the weather boot that runs between the door and the body of the vehicle, and the broken wire is making intermittent contact because the door is being opened and closed all the time, and sometimes the wire will touch and make the connection and that is why it only works sometimes.

Try this the next time that the window stops working, hold the window switch down in whatever direction that you want the window to go (up or down) and while holding the switch in that position open and close the drivers side door and move or wiggle around the weather boot that contains the wiring that is between the door and the body of the vehicle, and do the same for the passenger side door, if the window starts working while you are holding down the window switch and opening and closing the door or moving around the weather boot between the door and the body of the vehicle, then there is a broken wire or even wires that will need to be repaired.

The broken wire can be on either the passenger side, or most likely on the drivers side, and if you do find a broken wire or wires, then you should repair the wires by soldering them well and use the same gage wire if you need to lengthen the wire to repair it successfully, and do not use a wire connector if you want the repair to last.

Driver's door control panel doesn't work when door is open


Hi my name is Allen!

There is a ground wire that breaks between the door and the body, its inside of the rubber protector. If you peel the rubber from the door side you will find the ground wire broken.

NOTE: do not try to repair the wire at the break, because it will break again because of it bending at that location.

REPAIR: remove the kick panel trim and run a new wire from the inside out to the break, this will repair it for a long time. You must solder and heatshrink the wires together to keep moisture out of the repairs.

For further assistance contact me at FixYa!
