Odd power lock question

Odd power lock question

Postby thestrange [OP] » October 7th 2012, 12:40am

Hey there first, I am new to the forum, and the van lifestyle but love it. Second, I picked up a 94 astro EXT and the power lock on the passenger door work and control the slider door lock as well. HOWEVER the drivers power lock will not from either door. I tested the switch and it is getting power and directs it accordingly when lock/unlock is pressed. I ran a jumper to the actuator in the door and it worked great. I tested the wire at the actuator and it is NOT getting power at all. I located the fuse and relays and their good. but I am unsure if the relay is a 2 in 1 kind of relay? Any ideas? also if i could get a wire diagram for the power locks that would be great.

Does anyone know if I can see the power lock wires if I remove the engine cover? I don't want to go through the process if I don't have to.

One possibility: The wiring passes from the door to the body thru a flexible boot in the middle of the door. One problem

that seems to crop up is that when the door is opened and closed, the wires flex and move around. I have had to splice

broken wires for just this reason. So, you may want to explore the possibility that you have a broken wire(s).
