You need to check the master switch on the driver's door. Check to see if there is power out when you try to lock the doors. If there isn't replace the switch.

If there is no power to the switch, the problem is before it. Check the wiring between the door and the door frame.

Look behind the inside door handle. There maybe a screw their. Their are to screws on each side of the pull handle. Basicly the switch has a 3 wire connecter the center wire is the power wire. As you toggle the switch the other 2 wires are for lock and unlock.

I think I found the relay. I found it because when I push the lock button it makes a small clicking noise when I push it. It was behind the passenger seat behind the panel where the seat belt is. Also I tried seeing if there was power and when the wire touch I here another clicking noise coming from where the heater and fan are. Now what. Please help!

The switch is good. Youll need to take the door panel off and check the voltage at the lock actuator when operationing the switch. The actuator maybe bad. If the switch is sending the lock and unlolck voltage its a open wire or a bad lock actuator.
