Resolved Question:

I have 1995 Suburban. The power door locks do not lock. The switches make contact and the doors sound like they want to lock. I tried lubrication but no help. I am pretty sure the relay is bad but i don't know where it is located.

Sorry for the slow reponce.


Either the door lock relay or a bad wire could cause your problem. I would say the relay is the cause but with out a few test done I can't be postive.


There is a door lock relay which is located on the drivers side under the dash to the right of the steering wheel. Below is a diagram to give you an idea on its location.
