My power locks wont work. I can hear the relay switch clicking but there is nothing happening with the locks. How do I fix?

Have you removed the door panels to see if the linkage has come apart?

No. Its not just one lock it is all the locks.

You need to remove the driver's door panel and check for power to the main switch.

I took the driver side door panel off and saw that everything was connected. No wires were loose or broken. I also took the passenger door panel off and found the same thing. Locks still wont work

Under the hood is a power distribution box. Check for a door lock relay and switch it with another relay with the same part number to see if that helps.

I switched the fuse in the box with one with the same part number and the locks still dont work.

Is there power to the relay block?

Everytime you flip the switch you can hear a clicking sound coming from the relay.
