Diagnosis & Testing

NOTE
The most reliable, efficient, and accurate means to diagnose the power lock system requires the use of a scan tool and the proper Diagnostic Procedures information. Following are tests that will help to diagnose the hard wired components and circuits of the power lock system. However, these tests may not prove conclusive in the diagnosis of this system. In order to obtain conclusive testing of the power lock system, the CAN data bus network must be checked.

  1. As a preliminary diagnosis for the power lock system, note the system operation while you actuate both the Lock and Unlock functions with the power lock switches and with the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter. Then, proceed as follows:

    If the entire power lock system fails to function with either the power lock switches or the RKE transmitter, check the fuse in the Junction Block (JB).
     
    If the power lock system functions with both power lock switches, but not with the RKE transmitter, proceed to diagnosis of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) system.
     
    If the power lock system functions with the RKE transmitter, but not with one or both power lock switches, proceed to diagnosis of the door lock switches.
     
    If the driver side power lock switch operates only the driver side front door power lock motor, but all other power lock motors operate with the passenger side power lock switch or the RKE transmitter, use a scan tool and the appropriate diagnostic information to diagnose the CAN data bus.
     
    If only one power lock motor fails to operate with both power lock switches and the RKE transmitter, use a scan tool and the appropriate diagnostic information to diagnose the CAN data bus.

Removal & Installation
Door Lock Motor

The lock mechanisms are actuated by a reversible electric motor mounted within each door. The power lock motors are integral to the door latch units The power lock motors cannot be adjusted or repaired and, if faulty or damaged, the door latch unit must be replaced.

Door Lock Switch
  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2.  
  3. Using a trim stick, start at the rear of the switch and pry up to remove from door trim panel.
  4.  
  5. Disconnect electrical harness connectors from switch.
  6.  

Installation

  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
