I suspect that the problem is a badly adjusted latch mechanism.. Try that first. Make sure that any cable opening or electric opening latch is properly locking

Power locks wont lock doors with switch


All doors? Check the fuse...see owner's manual for info. Also verify that it is the vehicle's lock switches...or the keyless entry fob. If it is a single door, this can be a tricky difficult ordeal to find the "source" of the problem.
The difficulty is due to the fact that the negative/positive wires reverse polarity at door lock relays each time the lock is electrically exercised. The locks are activated by an electromagnet solenoid, which reverse when the supply current reverses polarity. For example, you may be able to lock a door with the switch then not be able to unlock it...or vice versa. If one of the wires has a fault, and the door locked [or unlocked], the relay was also "tripped/switched" with the "good" wire. When that happened, the relay effectively reversed the wire polarities...meaning that the faulty wire cannot energize the relay/solenoid to activate the lock-unlocking mechanism to reverse the process..

Simply, put...this is not likely a do-it-yourself fix, unless you have fair DC electrical skills, and a shop manual with complete wiring diagrams. The problem could be a poor wire connection, a broken wire, a faulty relay, a faulty solenoid, or a combination of these...or even a physical fault in the mechanical linkage for the lock.

If your vehicle has a locking lifting hatch back...and this is the "door" that won't operate, this can be very aggravating as there is no manual override, without removing the door/hatch trim and manually moving the linkage.

Hopefully it is the fuse.....good luck.

Hatchback doesn't unlock on 06 Kia sportqge. Hatchback window does open but the whole hatchback doesn't open. Not sure if it is electronic or mechanical problem


Hi

Can you hear the motor working inside the tailgate for the central locking when you press the eky fob lock / unlock button? if you can then the motor is fine and most likely the mechanism is jammed up. try pushing the tailgate inwaqrds while using the keyfob, this can often take the pressure off the mechanism. if you cannot hear the electric motor in the hatch then it has most likely failed,you should be able to get into the back and remove the trim to get the hatch open.

Get back to me once you have tested for the motor noise and I will send more info

Regards

Dan

Locks and hatchback


Open the rear inside cover and you will see where the keeper for the handle mechanism may have broken. You can get this from any part store. It is difficult to get in there but a small hand can open it for better access.
