Re: I own a 1997 pontiac sunfire back right tire locking.
Youre obviously dealing with rear drum brakes. one of the issues is the quality of brake linings back there. if you feel confident enough you can try taking a wire brush just behind the contact points(there are 3 points per side) and clean them well. oncde they are cleaned, use a lithium grease applied to all 3 contact points on each side. make sure these brakes are not adjusted too tightly. if this fails to accomplish the fix a quality brake shoe set will need to be purchased and turn the drums.

No, The 2.4lt quad 4 has a timing CHAIN when it starts to get sloppy the chain must be replaced. As these engines have an internal ignition pack under the valve cover ther is no adjustment. Unless you are an acomplished mechanic I don't suggest you takle this on your own.
take the lock out and have a look ,if it appears ok thenm you have the wrong key ,someone has changed the lock for whatever ,if so remove the clip retainer off the end and remove the barrel ,the you will see the that with the key tumblers are not retracting into the barrel ,now sometimes you can swop a few around but you always end up with one or two not right so i grind them down then the key will work ,refit the retainer/clip refit the lock and away you go all locks work with the same key .
Hello, with this body style, we have found this a lot. If the rear shoes are not adjusted really close, and I mean close, we have many issues the same as you are having. ABS is coming on, because rear wheels are locking up. You didnt mention if you cut the drums. A course cut will also cause this condition. We now set the brake drag so it turns 1 revolution after you spin the tire on the hoist. Hope this helps you get this repaired.
It is likely the handle or rod came of the lock mechanism. YOu will have to remove all the screws in the door panel and then take a pry bar or huge flat-tipped screwdriver and pry the panel off the door. Then take a look inside to see what doesn't look right. You may see the rod hanging there or it may be lying on the bottom of the door. It should snap back in place, if it doesn't stay in place, then a new little plastic fastner will need to be installed to hold the rod in place.
I might be able to help this one is testing my memory, There may be a small clip on the inside of the glove box on the right hand side this is holding the connector that has to be jumped . connect the 2 leads with a jumper wire and the door locks should cycle up and down ..without letting the wires go push one of the remote buttons and they will cycle again, do the same with the other remote and then release the jumper wire and they should work..the other popular spot for therse connectors is under the side trunk carpet beside the radio antenna hope I was a help and hope the connector locations were right..also some remotes require what they call syncronization ..Hold both lock and unlock buttons on the remote at the same time untill door locks cycle up and down..this could take as long as 20 seconds..do this on both remotes.. good luck..
