I HAVE A 2003 SAFARI AND THE ELECTRIC DOOR LOCKS HAVE ALL FAILED IN A SEQUENTIAL MANNER. FIRST WAS THE DRIVERS DOOR, THEN THE PASSENGER, THEN THE REAR AND NOW THE SIDE. NONE WILL WORK EITHER WITH THE FOB OR INTERIOR CONTROLS.THE LIGHTS AND HORN STILL SIGNAL WHEN YOU TRY TO LOCK OR UNLOCK. I'M LOOKING FOR HELP, A WIRING DIAGRAM OR CLUES ON WHERE TO BEGIN TO GET THEM WORKING AGAIN.

First id check the fuse, You can check for broken wires, mainly where the go thru the door jam. Do your other power accessories work? windows/mirrors?

All other accessories work. I don't think it's a fuse, as first it was only one door not working, then 2 doors, etc. Maybe each door is on it's own fuse? It's been a gradual decline. In fact each door had "sometimers "in the beginning-- would work sometimes and not other times and eventually quit.

Not unusal. As the original owner , it's always been in the Detroit, Michigan area. Never been on any lengthy trips or out of town for very long..

Thanks. I checked the fuses at the fuse panel under the dash near the kick panel. There are two 25 amp silver fuses labeled power windows and power acc. As I've said before my windows have always worked, so I switched these two fuses and nothing changed-- the windows still worked , but the power door locks did not. I don't see any fuse labeled power door locks. I did get my hands on a 93 Astro wiring diagram, and it shows a power door lock relay and door lock module, but it doesn't tell where located, so I don't know where to look. I think the problem might be there, as I can hear clicking noises in the doors when I work the locking buttons or Fob. It's like the door actuators aren't getting enough power.
