Hello. my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. Can you tell me if the locks work fine with the remote?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I don't have a remote I bought it used and didn't get one but when you push the buttons you can hear it trying to work
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 11 months ago.

Thank you. Typically this is an issue with the connection at one of the relays in the fuse box for the locks or there is a loose ground in the system. You would need a voltage meter to run some tests on it. Did you plan on fixing this yourself?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Thank you I will check the ground and relays
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I found the relay and it wasn't plugged in so I plugged it in and the locks work but the drivers lock won't stay locked when the car is running unless you lock it by hand why is that
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 11 months ago.

Does it continue to pop up when it tries to lock?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
it will lock then pop right back up
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 10 months ago.

And it will stay down when the vehicle is not running?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 10 months ago.

The car is programmed to not allow the door to lock if it detects that the driver door is open or if the key is left in the ignition. Do you get a door open light when driving?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I don't know will check tomorrow and let you know
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 10 months ago.

Okay. Thank you

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It's my daughter's car I called her she said there is no door open light when she drives
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 10 months ago.

Thank you. If that is not on then it either has a failure in the ignition switch or possibly the driver door lock actuator.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok thanks I will have them checked
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 10 months ago.

Have a good night.
