Hi, does the drivers door unlock and lock all the other doors if it does then you may find that a clip or connecting bar has come off the passenger door lock, you would need to take the door panel off to check,

If how ever the passenger door dont lock and unlock via the drivers door then you would need to buy a new central locking motor for the passenger door..

Your best option would be to remove the passenger side door panel and get someone to lock and unlock the drivers door whilst you look at the passenger side and have a look to see what parts are moving this should then give you a good idea of the parts that could be damaged

Electric lock on drivers door won't come up all other doors work fine


The most likely cause of this is that the power door lock motor has failed, you will need to replace it. Please watch this video at YouTube.

HELP! my 2002 audi a4 drivers window and electric mirrors are not working. also when doors lock on central locking the alarm doesn't arm, but then does 30 secs later also the central locking switch on...


Either a fuse problem or could be a twist in the electrical cable in the door joint . Sometimes chafes the outer core away and causes shorts in stuff like this .

98 Chev Blazer. power lock problem. driver's door would not unlock doors, now it will not lock doors. passenger side works fine


you may just have a bad connection under the lock button under switch panel on your drivers door. check electrical plug in at door lock switch by removing that panel from driver door.it may be that you have to replace that door lock switch .thers only one fuse for door locks and if pass side works, it's not blown.

Electric door lock not working


Any of these three causes may apply to your situation of your driver's rear door not power locking, specifically the malfunctioning of the 1) relay system, 2) switch motor, or 3) the switch/button itself. Here's a handy diagnostic article that explains this:

This should lead you to the correction of your door's failure to lock.

Central Locking


When you use your remote or insert your key in the Drivers Front door all the door locks should work at the same time by the door lock motors electrically. If you have to manually unlock the door because it will not lock or unlock by the lock motor, you need a door lock motor. The drivers and passengers front door can unlocked with the key manually. The rear doors you have to pull up the latch. If no doors unlock electrically with the remote or drivers door lock, intermittantly or all the time, you will need a Central Locking Electronic Control Module. You will hear the "beep" but no door locks will fire at all. If you have odd door locks not working intermittantly you need a new door lock motor for each door lock that malfunctions. You can hear of the door locks are working electrically. Yes, they are common problem. If you can hear the door lock working but the door still doesn't unlock you need to take the door panel off and lubricate the door latch assembly and work the lock, loosening it up. This is common as well.

Doors wont all lock at the same time on my '95 saab 9000cs. i have to manually lock them individually. My dashboard lights flicker, sometimes the lights will stay on and sometimes i have to tap the switch...


When you use your remote or insert your key in the Drivers Front door all the door locks should work at the same time by the door lock motors electrically. If you have to manually unlock the door because it will not lock or unlock by the lock motor, you need a door lock motor. The drivers and passengers front doors can unlocked with the key manually only. The rear doors you have to pull up the latch. 
If NONE of doors unlock electrically with the remote or drivers door lock, intermittently or all the time, you will need a Central Locking Electronic Control Module. Pressing the remote button you will hear the "beep", but no door locks will fire at all. 
If you have a few odd door locks not working intermittently or not at all, you will need a new door lock motor for each door lock that malfunctions. You can hear if the door locks are working electrically. Yes, they are common problem. 
If you can hear the door lock motor working but the door still doesn't unlock you need to take the door panel off and lubricate the door latch assembly and work the lock, loosening it up. This is common as well.
Sometimes a bad door lock motor can blow the central locking fuse. You will notice it because it will take a second or two longer to lock and unlock compared to the others. If the door lock motors seem fine, install a the next step up in amperage fuse. (From 15 AMP to a 20 AMP)

Drivers door lock & key pad not working.


Your lock motivator on driver side front is bad, replace, it should be cheap and easy to do. Goto dealer for part. It's the part that is connected to a rod that kicks back and forth to lock and unlock door.
