Chevy power door locks quite working?

Question

orangestew

Where do I begin trouble shooting? The other day all of the power locks quite working in my 2001 Chevy crew cab. Never relized what a luxury it is to have power locks until you have to reach into the back seat and unluck the door.

I checked the fuses and they all seemed ok. How do you know when they relays are bad? I pulled out all of the relays and reseated them and nothing happend right away and then just when I had given up the locks started working again. They worked for about a day and now they have stopped again. What else can I do to trouble shoot this problem? I would think it must be something electrical for all the door locks to stop working at once without any warning? Is there another relay or fuse that I should be looking for other than the obvious ones that are labled for the door lock?

Anyone ever have this problem? Help??????

What happens when you try the switch on the passenger side?

nothing happens? There is a clicking sound in the fuse box.

I am not an expert here, but with it working intermittently I would start looking for something loose somewhere. That and maybe pulling your relays out again using contact cleaner to clean things out a bit.

It may be the Driver Door Module. or DDM. I Have a 2003 Crew cab, and it has been replaced twice. I had the same symtoms, except the mirrors were the culprit, not the door locks. If I remember correctly, it is all one unit in the driver door.

Good Luck.

The first step is to check fuses. There are three that run these. TBC fuse in the under hood block, mirror/lock fuse and door lock fuse in the interior fuse block. If these are fine the next step is to hook up a scan tool and check for codes in the body control module. This is a fairly complex system as far as checking out (there are thirteen wires for this system just coming out of the fuse block).

Looks like I got it figured out. Replaced a relay after a process of elimination. The cover to the relay was even cracked and would get very hot. Replaced it today and so far has be been working just fine. In the owners manual the relay was labeled "Rap#1", whatever that means.

Thanks for all the replies and ideas guys.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?

      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
