Power Door locks don't work

Recommended Posts

I don't know if Ive posted on here yet...must be the age?  LOL

 

Anyway, picked up a '95 Pathy XE a few weeks ago.  160k but the motor and trans are still strong.

Had a few little issues I have solved already (cruise control, tach, exhaust leaks, etc).

 

Next problem on the list is the Power door locks.

I have not completely gotten into it yet, but I have taken apart and cleaned the switch on the drivers door (the one with the window controls as well) and that seems fine.

All my fuses seem to be ok, but there is absolutely no movement, no click, no nothing when I press the lock/unlock button.

I keep hearing about the door lock timer, but reading the symptoms of that, it doesn't seem to fit my issue.

 

Any tips or advice on where to look before I start pulling door and interior panels?

 

Thanks in advance...

Being that it is a high power-demand circuit I suspect that there is a bad relay causing your issue. Not that I have a circuit diagram anymore, but I recall there being a  crap-ton of relays in the engine bay on both the left and right sides. IF anyone has more specific directions for this fine gentlemen please chime in!

Thank you for the clue!

 

I found the service manual and found that power goes through circuit breaker 211M.

Found that 211M is "supposed" to be behind the kick panel on the passenger side....nope. Or, at least I couldn't find it.

I did find the power window amp, but no CB.

 

There is a reference for a '90 Pathy and 211M is drivers side, near the fuse block.  Will check there tomorrow.

I didn't have any relays on the drivers' side kick panel, but I do recall the power window relay. I was under the impression that the PW relay and the power door locks were both over there. I remember a round thing and that was for the power locks (two big wires?) and there was a square box (6 small multicolor wires with a split ground) which was for the power windows. Both should be hiding under the carpet, behind the kick panel and held on with a big 'ole Phillips screw through the inner steel body panel.

That big round thing is what Im looking for, the circuit breaker.

Thanks again for all the help. 

Found my circuit breaker, it has power to it. 

Also found a bunch of relays and they all worked fine. 

Nit sure if one was the lock relay or if I didn’t find that one.???

I'm out of ideas at this point! Maybe a bad ground (god knows that I did a lot of re-grounding of ground wires on my weekends)??

It was the timer.  Replaced with a junk yard box and all is good.  

Thanks all.
