i didn't see what fuse was labeled for the power locks but all of the fuses checked out ok, i also noticed that the power windows work without the ign turned on. will that help at all?
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 7 years ago.
If all the fuses are good and the windows work with the key in the ignition, then you have a problem with the body control module, it may not be neccessary to replace it, it may be able to be reflashed, but you will need a scanner to diagnose it properly,Tim
