Question about 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche

1 Answer

I have a 2008 Chevy Avalanche with remote door unlock. The keyless remote stopped working on the driver door but still works on all other doors and the tailgate. If I use the key only on the driver door the alarm goes off so I have to use the remote first then unlock the door with a key. I tried using the spare remote but I get the same result. Could this be a fuse?

Does the switch inside for that door work ? Does the power window work for that door ? Check fuse DDM - 15 amp I/P fuse panel . Do you know where the insturment panel fuse box is located ?
Fuse Block - I/P
Left of the I/P behind the side trim panel
# 4
DDM Fuse
15A
Driver Door Module (DDM)

Do you know anything about automotive electronic's , control module's ? Serial data communication networks ?
Circuit/System Description
The driver and passenger door lock and side window switches are integrated control module switch assemblies. The DDS and PDS door lock switches are normally open, 2 position rocker type switches, with detents for lock and unlock. The DDS and PDS are directly connected to the respective door lock actuator through the door lock actuator control circuits. When a door lock or unlock function is activated from the DDS or PDS, a serial data message lock or unlock command is sent to the other door switch and body control module.

more than likely the lock solenoid in the driver side door is not working. it located near the latch inside the door.

It could be the power lock motor. You could have a short or bad wiring harness. Might just be a fuse that connects to both. But since you said it's only the driver side. When the power lock motor is bad it can trigger your alarm because they're wired together.

Hope that helps. Good luck.

I have a 07 Avalanche LTZ that will not unlock the back doors and tail gate when the unlock sensor on the driver or passenger door are pressed or if the unlock button is press on the keyless remote.


unfortunately it is probably the lock actuators on all three, this is a known problem on those, I have worked at a chevy dealer for along time and have seen this many times usually due to water intrusion in the connector at the lock actuator, have been lucky a few times and been able to clean the connectors..
