2008 chevy equinox power locks not working

I have a 2008 Chevy equinox 63K miles was brand new when purchased in 2008. None of my doors unlock with the key fob or the unlock button inside. I have to unlock each lock seperately by hand which with 2 small children is a pain in the a**... Please help on what could be the cause. I did notice that it seems as if my sunroof is leaking into the car maybe this is y, shorting out some wiring?? My rear door has no problems opening with lock or key fob HELP!!

1) Your key fob could need a new battery.
2) Your fuses could need checking.

SOURCE: Power door locks won't unlock + tailgate won't open

your issue involves the master control switch panel on the drivers side and or the passenger side as well some how the contact inside the switch assembly has either shorted out or no longer makes contact for the unlock side of the circuit. replace the drivers side panel switchs it's either a series of switc hs or mostimes one sigle board of switchs. you are better off going to an auto parts store rather than a GM dealership this will save you quite a bit on cash on the parts. now as to the rear tailgate. if it is electronic controled and there is an issue with the master switch you can,t manually unlock it because of a safty issue built in the system. you can manually unlock the passenger compartment doors for thew same reasons of safety but doesn't apply to the tailgate. just replace the parts and this will take care of the problem

SOURCE: power locks for rear doors and hatch not unlocking

you have two relays on the interior fuse block one for locking and one for unlocking. Swap them and see if the problem is now such that they will not lock. If so you have your answer.

SOURCE: Remote Door Lock/Unlock will not work.

At first look, I would have guessed that your battery in the door opener was dead, but that is not the case. I suggest driving to a nearby Chevy dealer and ask one of the salesman if he/she can help. They have always been helpful to me. If not try another one as they are in business to sell not only cars, but service also. They will be your best bet to fixing it. :D

Power door lock on chevy equinox does not work on one door how can it be fixed


I had the same problem but on the passenger side door. The wire harness on the passenger side had broken wires. Purple wire was for the lock and thicker blue and darker grey was power for the windows. I used butt connectors to repair and it worked like a charm. Area was tight to work in between vehicle frame and door. Was easier to remove door panel and disconnect harness at vehicle frame and pull harness through door to complete the repair.

The key fab will lock and unlock all doors except the drivers door and the lock botton in the car on the drivers door will not lock or unlock the drivers door either. How do I fix this problem?


sounds like the lock actuator in the driver door has failed, probably have to replace the actuator, but first check the fuses for the locks, chevy has a habit of using a fuse for the drivers door that doesnt power the other doors. If the fuses are ok, then its probably the actuator
