When you say power locks, are you talking about the key fob button, or the button inside the truck? Are both doors inoperative, or just one?

im from europe how can i cal to us so easy

I'm not sure that I can call to Europe, don't worry about the phone call.

If you remove the door lock switch, is there power at the orange wire connected to the switch?

did not try it, and if there is a power?

If there is power, then I would go to the lock actuators and make sure they are getting power when you push the button.

If there is NO power, trace back to the circuit breaker, located in the fuse block under the dash, and repair the power circuit.

Lock actuator failure is common, even for multiple failures. I have replaced four actuators at the same time in a Suburban before, due to all of them being inoperative.

I try it out and I want to ask, on fuse number 13, the cigarette lighter is short-circuited can it have a connection?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
can it be related? is a question

No, there should be no connection between the cigarette lighter circuit and the power lock circuit.

Jerry the fuse is on the left side of the dash/ and what number is ***** fuse from the door switch?

This is not a fuse, it is a circuit breaker. Much larger than a fuse, it's metallic. You should see it there next to the fuses in the fuse block.

ok Jerry thx for answ great man

Hi Jerry my powewr lock still dont work, on the circuit breaker A is 12v the braker self is ok but on the door switcher is no power, i do search for a relay or module, under the dashboard but can not find it.

If you have power at the CB but not at the switch, I'd go looking the pass through between the door and the body, wires typically break in this area. Pull back the rubber bellows and just have a look, you know you're looking for an orange wire per the schematic, see if you can find any wire damage in that area. It's fairly common on issues like this.
