Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the power locks don't work at all yet the interior lights and radio do then the problem may be with the instrument cluster, wiring, or door latches. you may have a combination of different problems affecting different doors if they didn't all stop working at exactly the same time.

Do the lights flash when the key fob buttons are pressed?

Do the radio and interior lights work?

Did all doors stop working at exactly the same time?

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT.

I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
