None of the electric door locks are working on my 1997 GMC Safari. They all failed at the same time.
door locks driver/passenger side stopped working. rear door lock clicks on and off until speed exceeds 45 mph.
The Back Window Hatch Will Not Work. I Have Not Been Able To Get It Fixed So I Am Unable To Open It As Well As The Back Doors.
rear window wont open so I cant open the two doors under the window. replaced everything in bottom of window and still does not work. found a broken wire in the drivers side door boot fixed it and now the passenger side door works LOL because that would not open either with the clicker now it does cant fix the rear window though i am at a lost
At around 32000 miles three of the five door locks quit working. Now at 190000 miles none of them work. I lock the doors the old fashioned way, with the key.
driver side power lock stopped working, passenger side still works and can lock and unlocks all doors. changed out the activator and still not working.
When u unlock doors it loses power on batterry gauge on cluster and only the driver side unlocks sliding door don't even unlock pass. Side lock ot feels like it wants to unlock but it doesn't
