So none of the door locks, windows, anything works from the left front door? Or is just the alarm and the retained accessory power issues?

one of the door locks, windows, anything works from the left front door. Exactly
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Nothing works from there
GM Mechanic: Jerry Newton, GMC Technician replied 4 months ago

OK. First thing I would look at is in the bellows that goes between the door and body, pull that rubber bellows back and look carefully inside at the wiring. Wiring commonly breaks in this area due to the flexing, it wouldn't surprise me to find several damaged wires in here. Is that something you can do?

This service just charged me $21 more dollars and it only said $5
GM Mechanic: Jerry Newton, GMC Technician replied 4 months ago

I don't have any control over the billing on this, I don't get paid until/unless you rate my answers using the stars at the top of the page. Would you like to stop, and I can submit this for a refund?
