Power Door Lock Question

1329 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  blueraven
My 88 Ramcharger has power door locks. The switch does not activate them or even make a sound when you push it. I tried to lock it by pushing the lock down with my hand and it will not move. I tried locking it with the key from the outside and still nothing. Does anyone have any experience with this problem? I have never worked on power door locks so I am not sure where to start or what the problem may be. Is the switch bad? Is there a problem with the linkage? Thanks in advance.

both of my 89 RC doors are the same and the selonoids are dead. Remove the door panel, with a phillips, unscrew the screw that attaches the locking rod to the selonoid. You might want to remove the selonoid just to keep it from snagging on the rod. This procedure will allow you to lock the doors manually. This will give you time to search the junk yards for the selonoids. Total time for both doors 30 mins.
