Test to see if you have power going to the door lock motor, if you do, then motor is bad, if you don't then there is a shorted wire or switch

SOURCE: Power door locks and driver side power window not

You can do it yourself.

Couple of times when you replace the remote battery, you might have them not working/ responding but just follow the procedure below.

Stand close to the car, hold down the open and close knobs for about 10 seconds. Press them at the same time for 3 seconds; then press the open button as the car opens.

The above procedure is applicable to a lot of car brands. It does not matter how many knobs you might have on the remote fob.

I have carried this procedure out on a lot of brands ranging from Honda, Toyota, Rover, Ford, etc. and it works perfectly well.

Good luck and Rate this.

Cheers

SOURCE: The driver side door won't lock. Manually or with remote.

Look on the door panel for small plastic covers. There should be one or two at the door handle and maybe another closer toward the door hinge. Also, around the perimeter of the door panel, there are some plastic inserts. They are ribbed and are just pressed into holes on the metal door frame. You just pull on the door panel in these areas to get the plastic inserts out. There might be as many as 3-4 at the bottom and a couple on the sides. Where the panel contacts the window, it just slips up. None of this should take too much force, so if you are having to pull really hard and the panel is moving, there must be another screw or something is stuck. Careful not to break your panel. Once inside, see if there is a linkage disconnected. From what you have described, it does sound like something mechanically wrong.

SOURCE: power door locks and drivers window have failed on 2004 colorado

I had the same problem to the T. I look online for all the same solutions and I can only tell you what worked for me. Actually what I think worked, HAHA! I went out to my truck and unplugged both battery terminals from battery and placed them together to supposedly reset the electrical system, "so I was told." After this for about 20 min or so, I went back out and in this order; re-installed positive terminal followed by negative terminal to battery. After this I checked locks and windows and surprise they worked. I've seen a lot of people say that all they did was wait and they worked later, so maybe it was that and not what I did, but who cares, they work now. Give it a shot and if it works for you, GREAT let me know, I HATE CHEVY CAUSE OF THIS......they wanted me to pay for a stupid diagnostic before they would help me........well screw you I fixed myself. LATER

Check inside wiring by the driver's side door hinge. Remove the rubber boot and you will find broken wires. Make a splice and you are fixed!

SOURCE: Power door locks and driver side power window not working

The solution to this issue was recently discovered during our most recent trip to the shop. We told them not to leave the window down when they changed the battery... BUT DID THEY LISTEN...NOOOO.

So quite by accident I was finally able to correct and then test fail the system and test and fix again...

Here you go.;
1. disconnect the battery and connect both the positive and negative cables together(after disconnected))
2. disconnect the window and lock controller in the driver's side door.
3. Leave cables connected for at least 5 minutes
4. Re-connect door window controller and locks wiring harness
5. Place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
6. Connect Battery starting with the negative cable(ensuring not to connect then disconnect, (one swift motion)
7. open drivers side door and turn key to the off position(do not remove)
8. You should hear a series of dings
9 Once dings are heard remove the key from the ignition and you should hear the door lock solenoids activate..
10. Congrats.. Your done and the windows and locks work.

Scion xa driverside door switch wont unlock 2006


That's in all prob the switch itself. If you can, open the switch panel & test if you have power & ground w/ a test lt as U move the switch back & forth, if OK, U need a switch. if no power or a bad ground-electrical short. sounds like a switch or the connection. Good luck Frank M (if elec short & U cant handle it, take it in.

Driver side power window and lock not working


Check the electrical connections for you control switches...there should be at least two of them. Disconnect them and see if there are any recessed pins or dirt. Do this several times as there may be some oxidation on the connectors and doing this will help clean them off. The radio and door light works of the small limit switch on your door frame. Everything else works through the operators window/door lock control panel.

I have a 2006 Chevy Cobalt that I bought used. Didn't have the remote for the door locks. I can unlock all of the doors from the driver's side, however I can't lock them. Any suggestions?


check the lock side of the switch, its not connecting, remove the switch and test it, if the doors will unlock its letting you know the plungers are working, and that to lock its not getting any power to reverse the action, ( check the individual doors, if they work both ways,, then its the drivers door switch that's faulty

Power Windows, mirrors and locks do not work on the drivers side. Wondering if this could be a fuse.


{: ) The driver door module (or driver door switch) serves as the master switch for the driver to gain control of the windows, mirrors, and doorlocks. Yes its possible that a fuse could be open. Check out the DDM fuse 10amps at rear fuseblock, check out also the LT DOORS circuit breaker 25amps on the same fuseblock. If these circuit protections are okay, you need to remove the driver door switch assembly and verify if the door switch terminals have power and ground, Probe on the terminals of the two orange wires for +12volts and probe on the black wire for -negative ground.
If power is present, then the next thing to check will be the driver door module itself, although not that easy. If you're lucky enough to find another switch of the same configuration and known to be working, you can swap it. If it works, then you know what to replace. If it doesn't, you could be having some wiring issues on that area.
A scan tool diagnostic test is a better option. It can tell if the driver door module is communicating, if it is giving proper signals, which lines could be possibly faulty. If the module is communicating, you can try reprogramming the door switch. If not successful, you may need to replace and reprogram the new module. So goodluck.

2006 gmc envoy drivers door has no power to it , no dome light when you open door all other doors are ok


{: ) Try checking the DDM fuse 10 amps at the rear fuseblock. If you'll be able to access the connectors under the driver door switch, check for 12v power by probing on all the orange wires. Check also the black wires for good ground connections. If the windows can be operated on the driver's door switches, then the door lock actuator coud be faulty. But if most or all of the buttons on the driver door switches doesn't seem to function at all, despite 12v power and ground on the respective terminals, then it can be a malfunctioning driver door switch. A new driver door switch will also require programming.
If ever this is the case and you need to be sure, you can try swapping the driver door switch from another vehicle you know of with a similar configuration as your vehicle.

2006 Trailblazer LT with power everything. Driver door & buttons (window & lock control) got very wet yesterday during heavy rain. Everything worked as of 6:00pm yesterday. This morning though,...


I think you're in luck. There is a recall for the master switch due to this very issue. Act like you don't know what's wrong, they'll need to replace it to an updated one that won't be so prone to water infiltration.

How to find fuse for a 2006 chevy equinox driver's power window


power windows are not usually fused. They have a circuit breaker that controls all the windows. So if only one window is not working it is something like a bad switch or window motor. Remove the door panel and unplug the connector to the window motor and check for power and ground when activating the switch.
