Door lock doesn't work?

5 posts in this topic

I have a 2001 chevy-zo6 that has 14,000 rounds on it. I purchased it with just under 10,000 M. I have had it for 3 yrs. The key fob will open the drivers door but not the passenger door. There is no keyhole on the passenger side so it makes chivalry a real pain. I checked the fuses and they are fine. The lock did not work when I purchased it. Is this a big deal to fix? Trunk and all other features work fine. Just the passenger door does not respond to the fob. Thanks in advance.

Sounds like you have a bad door lock motor, or a broken wire in the door.

Or your not hitting the button twice?

Does it unlock with the switch in the truck?

The lock is broken. I tried everything. It is the 2001 corvette z06. I was just wondering if this would be a dealer repair or if someone that knows their stuff can do this job.

Should be pretty straight forward. There are all kinds of ways to start but I would probably pull the door panel and check the lock actuator. If its getting power/ground than its bad. If it isn't than it should be fairly easy to trace the problem with a wiring diagram and a little detective work.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
