rear door plug ID?

rear door plug ID?

Postby markmitch [OP] » May 11th 2020, 2:02am

Ok so I am close to being done with the barn door to dutch door fiasco but I seem to have a plug inside the rear passenger door that I can't find in my notes I added a couple pictures of it so if anyone know what is for please let me know. It is inside the door as I said but nothing plugs into it?

I have the same plug in my Dutch door and it’s not plugged into anything. It was just hanging there. I’m pretty sure it’s for a door lock actuator in the barn doors.

I THINK that "UncleBilly" meant that you don't NEED it? Unless I'm wrong, would there be any reason to "Lock" the passenger-side swingy door when the hatch is locked and preventing the bottom doors from opening? This is a detail that I've never really given much thought to until now; I hope you find a definitive answer to this and post it up for us Mark.

EDIT: Maybe you could plug your test-light into it and cycle the lock/unlock switch a few times?

I just took that door apart and I do believe rom memory it was the actuator plug. It just makes the closure more secure and will not allow the door to be unlatched when the vehicle is locked so there is no slop in it if it was opened when the rest of the van is locked.

more coffee-talk...I don't have any way to unlock my dutch doors except the key lock or dash button, meaning once the liftgate is latched the doors are locked. I have to agree that the unused plug is likely there for the barn door actuator, and that if you really wanted to know the test light would probably tell you.

I still have to wire all the switches and wiring harness for the hatch before I can test that plug. That is why I asked in the forum. I ordered this so I can unplug the switches to move the console I built to house the switches if I ever need to get into the dog house. https://www.walmart.com/ip/seort/931058213

that's always good reasoning, quick-connections.

my 95 may or may not have the same mystery plug inside the door, and I don't care until i have to, so i was just gabbing with my morning smoke. what i know about this place is, the person who knows your answer will be along, and i'll wanna know too, just because.

Should be in the component location views in the FSM.

My guess would be the key lock switch that the dutch doors don't have.

Just removed the actuator from the dutch door. No key but it does lock.

I still have the barn doors with the type of windows that hinge open if someone close by wants to grab the windows and hardware they are free for the taking doors and all if needed. Anyone here know how to wire in relays so the dash light harness can be used to light the switches without blowing fuses, I could use the knowledge from someone.

Mark, you really should not need a relay to light the switches, unless you have some strange switches
