Question about 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

The power door locks do not lock all the time in my 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP. They are intermittant. The UN-lock works good. Locking sometimes fails when: Putting the car into gear; Pressing the lock button inside the car; Or, pressing the lock button on the keyfob. Note that when using the key fob, the horn blows indicating that the alarm set but, the doors don't always lock. The problem is occuring with all 4 doors. I am assuming that the lock relay needs to be replaced but, I don't know where it is. Can yo help?

SOURCE: power lock wont lock door on 99 grand am will only unluck them.

it is more than likely your buttons, if one button is bad neither will work.

Try changing the buttons, if that does not work, then it could be one of the motors,
same as the buttons if one is bad neither will work.

to change the buttons, simply remove the screw on the panel, if there is one, if not then insert a small flat head screw driver on the bottom of the panel and gently push down this will pop the panel out.

once you get it out pull the plug off, there is 2 8mm screws holding the switch in, then screw your new one in and plug it back in, do the same on the other side. the panel will just snap right back in.

If this does not work, check the motor, you have to remove the door panel, then the silencer pad, once you get in, it will be inside the door near the back. about half way down, it is round with a rubber boot, it is held in with some rivets. If you need to replace it you will have to drill them out, and replace with nut and bolt.

To test it, if you have a corless drill... pull the plug from the motor, and stick 2 wires into the plug, one for positive and one for negitive, and touch the ends to the battery. if it does nothing then it is your motor, but make sure you switch the wires from one side ot the other to test both up and down.
One wire is for up and one if for down.

If you do not have a cordless drill battery just use long peices of wire and use the car battery.

Don't worry there is not enough power in a car battery to shock you.

SOURCE: my key fob will only unlock, pop my trunk and set

You need to replace the FOB. I had the same problem. The contact points under the touchpad go bad. Find a local locksmith to proagam the FOB you will save about $40.00 compared to the dealer.

How do I program my remote key fob for a 2007 pontiac grand prix?


Hey Lisa,
You are going to have to take the car and the key fobs to the dealership .
They will need all of the fobs , as they are all going to need to be reprogramed at once ;
The fob on an 07 Pontiac only can be programed using a diagnostic scan tool .
They will connect the scan tool to the vehicle.
Turn key to on position.
Select 1 body,
then select special functions
then select program key fob,
select the number of key fobs you want programed.
Press and hold the lock and unlock key simultaneously for about 15 seconds until the power locks cycle to confirm the remote is programed.

How do you put the seats down from the trunk in a 2007 pontiac grand prix? Door remote will not workto unlock door.


to drop the back seat there is a latch behind the seat at the top on each side. for the door remote check the battery in the remote and make sure it is functional. If the battery is good, the module in the vehicle is defective.

None of the power door lock switches work.


Have you checked the wires between the doors and body, they will break in time, and yours is a year where they could be broken now, they don't last forever.. that will cause the fuse blowing, and the locks not working.
Check all doors, but most likely the Drivers door or Passenger door will be the culprit......
