98 Chevrolet C1500 Cheyenne 5.7 Door locks not working

Customer Question
98 Chevrolet C1500 Cheyenne 5.7 Door...
98 Chevrolet C1500 Cheyenne 5.7
Door locks not working
Already tested the controls and they are sending out voltage but the voltage is not arriving at the door locks motors. I assume it was the door lock relay but I have already removed the dash board and could not find the relay anywhere

ok be sure that its specific to the cheyenne submodel because I also have a c1500 silverado and I was able to find the relay on it. and its located in the same spot that its supposed to be located in the cheyenne but Its not there.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
thank you
Chevy Mechanic: adamfeather, Technician replied 1 year ago
Ok found it. Hopefully this helps find the problem. I have also seen instances where the wiring gets rubbed through or broken and causes the breaker to burn out. Be sure to look around closely while you have the dash out. Maybe leave it out until your sure you find the problem. Don't hesitate if there is anything I can do for you!
Thanks,

Ok Ill take some pictures and send them your way so you can see what I mean
Chevy Mechanic: adamfeather, Technician replied 1 year ago
Ok I see what you mean.... I just now read an article and someone mentioned the relay sometimes being above the accelerator pedal?? Check around that area and let me know. I have a pinout if you need showing the wire colors but it looks like you can cheat off your other truck it should look the same. Let me know and I'll keep helping if you don't find it there.

This is a bit of the article.Customer Concern: All the door locks want to cycle but do not lock or unlock any of the doors.
Average Reported Mileage: 125087
Tests/Procedures: 1. Access an actuator and check for good powers and grounds on the Gray and Tan wires.2. If ok, replace the actuator.3. If all actuators have failed, replace the relay located above the accelerator pedal.
Tech Tips: Check for a history of a dead battery from the relay sticking on causing the actuators to all fail.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok so I went to look all around the pedal. I did find a connector near the top but the relay was not there and the wires going into the connector did not match the ones from my other truck... I dont think this it the location for it. Could you also send me a wiring diagram of the power locks specific to the cheyenne I want to compare it to the diagrams I got and make sure I didnt miss anything
Chevy Mechanic: adamfeather, Technician replied 1 year ago
I sure can. I will send all I can within the next few mins. However keep in mind even the dealer diagrams I have are general to the 1500 series chassis so they even show as if it has 4 doors. They do say in the diagram (4 door only) so you know it may not apply. Hang In there I'll start getting them together.
Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Chevy Mechanic: adamfeather, Technician replied 1 year ago
Bare with me I'm just going to send things I find may help as I come across them.
The power door lock system incorporates door lock switches on both front doors and on the RH D-pillar, door lock motors in all passenger doors and in the RR cargo door, a door lock relay and a door lock control module.Power for the door lock switches and the door lock control module is supplied from the CIG LTR fuse 13 through CKT 640 (ORN). Power for the door lock relay is supplied from the PWR ACCY circuit breaker through CKT 540 (ORN). Ground for the door lock relay is supplied from G202 through CKT 150 (BLK) and ground for the door lock control module is supplied from G400 through CKT 150 (BLK).The door lock motors are reversible and both sides are connected to the normally closed contacts of the door lock relay. Those contacts of the relay are connected to G202. When any of the door lock switches are placed in the lock position, voltage is supplied through CKT 195 (LT BLU) to the relay lock coil. Since the other side of the lock coil is connected to ground, the coil is energized and it pulls the lock contacts closed. Voltage is then supplied through CKT 295 (GRY) to all the door lock motors and the doors lock. The unlock function operates in much the same manner except that when any of the switches are placed in the unlock position, voltage is supplied through CKT 194 (WHT) to the unlock coil of the relay and CKT 294 (TAN) supplies voltage to the apposite side of the door lock motor and the doors unlock.Door Lock Control Module DescriptionThe door lock control module is used on vehicles equipped with cargo doors. The purpose of the module is to lock the cargo doors after a lock cycle has been commanded from any of the door lock switches with the cargo doors open. When the RH cargo door is open, the module receives a ground signal from the closed contacts of the rear door jamb switch on CKT 1897 (ORN/BLK) to G400. When a lock command is received, the module retains this input until it receives an open input from the rear door jamb switch. Then the module sends a lock command through CKT 194 (WHT) to the door lock relay and the doors lock.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help. I have troubleshooting tree I can send but they can be difficult and tough to navigate through. If you know you have power out of the switches make sure it's getting to the relay. Then out of the relay to the actuators. Worse case follow the light blue wire and the white wire coming out of the switches. You may have to peel open the harness every couple feet or at the intersections with other harness to see which route they go. Hopefully this helps get to the bottom of it!

sorry I didnt get a chance to work on the truck over the weekend. I will start working on it right now. Let me read through your information
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I am still running into the same trouble after reading you info. I already tested the voltages at the door lock module. It all seems in place, in fact I can go do it again and write down the voltages for each of the wires coming out of the module. Problem is that I cant locate the relay anywhere I tried taking off the entire dash board and following the wires to the relay. But it got to the point where I had to remove even more parts in order to get access to the wires so thats why I decided to ask here if you could help me find the relay or if there is something else for this models. Because the normal location where the relay is for c1500 does not apply for this truck
Chevy Mechanic: adamfeather, Technician replied 1 year ago
Ok. Very sorry we haven't figured it out. I'm not back at my computer until around 6pm est.
I'll check into it 1 more time. If I come up empty I apologize I may have to opt out and see if there is another expert that may have a first hand experience like this. I'll be In touch.

IF this is a 1998 Cheyenne & this has Factory Power Door Locks, you likely do NOT have a Door Lock Relay.......
The circuit would be "Reversal Rest At Ground"
IF there is Voltage + on the ORANGE wire at the Driver & Passenger Switch
Pressing LOCK should show Voltage + out of the Switch on the LIGHT BLUE wire (driver switch) & GRAY wire (passenger switch)
Does it??

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Hello thank you for responding... Thank god so there is no relay then... ok... so there is voltage when I press both the drive and passenger side buttons to lock or unlock the truck... however when I check for voltage and the lock motors there is no voltage there.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
To answer your question there is voltage on the orange wire at all times. and there is voltage on the light blue wire and gray wire when pressing lock
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
There is however no voltage at the gray or tan wires directly on the door lock motors
Chevy Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Auto Mech / Electronics replied 1 year ago

As posted the Circuit is "Reversal Rest at Ground"
Meaning:
When Lock is pushed the LIGHT BLUE wire (driver switch) & GRAY wire (passenger switch) will have Voltage +
The WHITE wire on Driver & Passenger Switch will have Ground -
Or the TAN wire at the Door Lock Motor will have Ground -
.

When UNLOCK is pushed, the LIGHT BLUE wire (driver switch) & GRAY wire (passenger switch) will have Ground -
The WHITE wire on Driver & Passenger Switch will have Voltage +

Or the TAN wire at the Door Lock Motor will have Voltage +

.

This is how the Voltage + & Ground - works the Door Lock Motors, by "reversing" the Voltage + & Ground -
Be sure you have a good Ground - on the BLACK wire of the Driver Switch

ok so what stands out to me is the passenger side switch only throws out 1.12 volts when the unlock or lock button is pressed. this happens on all the wires on the passenger side (tan white ltblue and gray)...
Chevy Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Auto Mech / Electronics replied 1 year ago

But the ORANGE wire has at least 11.5 volts DC?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
yeah
passenger side has
11.68 volts on orange wire
lt blue and white wires have 11.56 of ground
but when lock or unlock is pressed all the wires get 1.12 volts for some reason

Doors UNLOCKED:
With Passenger Lock pressed ...what happens if you BRIEFLY "jumper" a Ground - wire to the TAN wire of the Passenger Switch?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
ok with the door unlocked i pressed the lock button while grounding the tan wire... i tried grounding it with a good ground on the truck as well as with the white wire. nothing happened...

IF you were to Unplug both switches & jumper the GRAY wire at the Passenger Switch with Voltage + & Jumper the TAN wire with Ground-, the Door Lock Motors should respond

quick question about the grey wire... on the switches there is not really a grey wire the closes color to it is a dark brown wire and I assumed that its the grew wire... however the wire that goes to the lock motors is actually grey and looks nothing like the one at the switch

I may have wasted your time.........
When you have "both plugs connected"......Press Lock or Unlock, do you here any "clicking" under the dash, as that is a Plug for the Relay version.
The "click" will be faint, if at all

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No clicking there is no relay. I have searched everywhere for it. Everyone tells me the relay is in the same spot. My other truck has the relay in the location that this trucks are supposed to have it
Chevy Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Auto Mech / Electronics replied 1 year ago

the problem with this year is there were 3 types
The Circuit I provided
The circuit for the Relay under Driver Dash
The circuit for 2 Relays in the Fuse Panel
The Reversal Rest At Ground, as I posted is still correct for the circuit I posted & the Relay under the Dash
The BROWN wire is for Park Lamp feed for the Lighted Switches
.

I saw the picture you posted under the dash & I have seen the Relay mounted above the Steering Column area. Not where it typically is.
At this point, after seeing the Plug you have, with the Door Switches in "neutral" position, the ORANGE wire is Voltage +, WHITE wire is Ground -, the LIGHT BLUE is Ground -, the TAN wire is Ground -, the BROWN wire is Park Lamp feed +, but I show nothing for the DARK BLUE, which I assume is Ground -
You may want to see what wires come from the Door Lock Motors to the Switch.
Unplug both switches
Then test each Door Lock Motor by jumpering the 2 wires from each Door Lock Motor at the Switch Plug to see if the Door Lock Motor responds
Then reverse the Jumpers to see if the Door Lock Motors respond the opposite way
I have GM Service Manual & cannot see the 2 DARK BLUE wires goung to either plug
Will have to research in morning, but I am truly sorry for the issue..........

Will post back
thanks

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
One thing to consider is that half of those wires you are seeing are from the power windows
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
you think there is actually 2 relays then?
Chevy Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Auto Mech / Electronics replied 1 year ago

I have the V.I.N. & will need to have a look on which circuit it is........
I still believe it is a non relay / Reversal Rest At Ground type, but the GM diagrams I have here are not showing the complete circuit......
Typical for those years.........Will try to get the diagrams first thing

will have to pass on this, as GM only has those same diagrams as posted........
at this point, I would trace harness from driver door, into dash & trace across dash to passenger door
IF there is NO Relay branching off at the point the diagram shows, then it could have been moved or someone has rewired

last thing I did was unplug the lock motors from both doors in case the reason no voltage was leaving the switch on the passenger side was because one of the motors was burnt or shorting out.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have also read a few forums where people where trying to switch their c1500 from just power locks to the control power locks and they refered to that relay as the one that needed to be replace. I might be wrong, all I am saying is if you could look deeper into that relay to see if maybe it is the one I am looking for its just that the relay is normally also used for the lamp controls.
Chevy Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

OK. It could be the relay. Lets start back at the door. Where the door opens there is a black tube. If you push it into either the door or the cab you can inspect the wires, I strongly suspect you have broken wires in there. Sometimes it is easier to disconnect inside cab and pull wires into door.

I ran a continuity test from the light blue wire on the driver side to the passenger side and it tested good. I did the same for the white wire tested good as well. I also tested the ground wires and they get good ground. problem is when i press the lock or unlock button on the passenger side only 1.2 volts leaves through the tan wire and the other wire

ok so i replaced the relay 15150325 with no luck.
I got some lock switches from a different truck that I know are in working condtions and tested mine on the other truck. My switches are in working conditions as well. So I have crossed the switches out because they cant be the problem. there has to be a relay somewhere that I am missing

Update: so I checked and the grey wire and tan wire that connect to the motors are not grounded. anyone know where this wires are grounded to?

.

I am sorry no one has responded, but this question has a lot of issues
I posted earlier that this is a "Reversal Rest At Ground Circuit"
Meaning:
There are "TWO" wires at the Door Lock Actuator / Motor
When the Switch is pressed to LOCK:
One wire will have Voltage +
One wire will have Ground-
Then, when the Switch is pressed to UNLOCK:
The wire that had Voltage + should now have Ground -
The wire that had Ground - now should have Voltage +
So to answer your last "Update",
At the Door Lock Actuator / Motor:
IF the Gray wire has Voltage + & the TAN wire has Ground -
Then the Actuator should move one way or the other
Then if you switch the wires, the Door Lock Actuator / Motor should move the other way
IF it does NOT, replace the Actuator
I cannot continue with this, as you have not followed thru with my suggestions & hands on cannot be done

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I will follow through with your suggestions whats the first suggestion?
I took off the both switches and both motors and tested them on my other truck all worked fine.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I checked my other truck to see how the voltages and grounds work. when nothing is being pressed on my other truck both the grey and tan wires have ground going to them.
on the cheyenne it shows me that there is no ground going to either wire right now. So I found ground G202 to see if it was connected and the ground seemed fine.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Im pretty good at following instructions if you tell me what to do Ill give you the results back in a couple minutes

That is correct, as I explained a few days ago...
Circuit is "Reversal "Rest at Ground"

.

I believe there is a Relay somewhere in the truck
may not be where it is supposed to be, but by the way you have described it in all your posts, which I have read a number of times, this appears to be Relay driven

.

I would trace harness from driver door, into dash & trace across dash to passenger door

I just took off the entire dashboard about two hours ago and traced the wires from one door to the other. no relay anywhere.
Im not saying you were wrong about the reversal rest at ground. Im just saying that neither of the wires is getting ground right now on the faulty truck. What should I do next? I have pictures of the entire harness from one side to the other with no relay anywhere.
