You have a defective door lock actuator motor, more then likey water has gotten into it from a torn weather seal boot. Remove the door panel and replace it.

Something in the transmission is probably not right. Sounds like a small gear has stripped and is trying to go ahead and go into gear, or the gear is chipped and is making that sound because it is chipped and not going into the other gear as smoothly as it should. I would take it to a transmission shop where ever you live and get it checked out. That's one thing about automatic transmissions, they have to be worked on by a transmission specialist nowadays. Try that and let me know what you found out.

The locks on the kias 2007 spectra when you push the button it makes bussing sound in the drivers door also they will lock the doors on you.


Sounds like the electric motor that controls the lock arm is possibly sticking and grinding on itself causing the buzzing noise. Or it could be something inside the panel has created an issue for the arm and motor to move freely.

If you go to this site: http://www.kiatechinfo.com you may be able to find a way to remove the door panel and check out the function of the lock. I'd give it a look see before you take it to a shop, it could be something simple. Replacing the entire lock would probably get a little on the expensive side.

My key won't unlock the door on kia sedona ex


If the key turns but does not unlock the door then it is a linkage problem between the lock tumbler and door lock mechanism. If the key does not turn at all, then it will most likely be a problem with the mechanism. Sadly both of these will require removal of the door panel. If you dont feel comfortable with this then take to a reputable shop

Pull the door panel and find the cause, it can be a faulty lock motor or the linkage rod has come off due to a broken retainer clip.

it sounds like you may have a door switch going bad or in need to adjustment, the car thinks the door is ajar and then cycles the locks. the hard part may be to figure out which switch is making it act up.

Power door locks dont work right


THE ONLY WAY TO FIND AND TRY AND FIX PROBLEM THAT IS YOU'LL HAVE TO REMOVE THE DOOR PANELS THAT ARE MAKING THE GRINDING SOUND, AFTER YOU REMOVE THE PANEL TRY TO OPEN THE WINDOW WITH THE REMOTE AND THIS TIME YOU'LL SEE WHATS MAKING THE GRINDING SOUND...MY GUESS IS THAT THE GLASS COULD BE OF THE TRACK. AND WHEN YOU USE THE REMOTE THE FORCE OF MOTOR AND GLASS CAUSES THE GRINDING SOUND..
GOOD LUCK.
