Hey people call this number 888-327-4236 tell them your problem. I did cause I think it should be a recall. I'm having the same issue.. It's a integrated control module for door locks... This part is on a national back order. So that means there's a hell of a lot of people with this problem... It's a big safety issue if you really think about it...

Same thing with my Nitro power unlock only works on the drivers side "most" of the time and the rear wont open which DOES not help as it is hockey season so my son has practice/games 3-4 times a week and his huge bag is back there. Anyone know where I would go to get this fixed?

doorlocks wont unlock with key or lock have to lock it manually and powerlock door fuse keeps blowing out as soon as i change it this should be a recall becuase it may cause other electrical issues and cause an extream accident

Car will not lock from either key or by either of the 4 door panels. Can not manually lock my rear gate which makes my car accessible and vulnerable at all times. Removed battery and it started to work again, battery died today and I jumped it and now they are not working again.

I have a 2007 Dodge Nitro. I am experiencing a problem that many owners of this make and model are having, my automatic locking for the doors will not work. I can only unlock with my key on the drivers side. The door to open up the back to allow me to use the bigger space and for me to access my spare tire will not open either. I'm going to call the 888-237-4236 # to tell them the problem. Hoping that they will do a recall on this. It's a major inconvenience!
My rear gate will not unlock! No since in having an SUV if u can't access it all! :-(

all door locks and 2 windows inoperable
The unlock on the key fob or the auto locks on the door handles doesn't work. The auto lock when the car reaches 15 miles a hour only works when it wants to. It has been like this since a few years after I bought the vehicle. I wish there was a recall to fix that problem.

My car is in the shop right now. The power locks do not work and I cannot get into the back hatch. The only way into the vehicle is through the drivers door.
left rear power door lock inoperative, all others seem ok.
My key fob will not unlock the car, my wife's too. Now after trying to reprogram, the car won't start.
