1999 Chevy Suburban V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 63000 miles
When using keyless entry button or switch on driver's side I can not lock or unlock any of the four doors. When I push the button it seems like the power output to the door lock actuator is not powerful enough to actuate the solenoid to move the lock switch. When moving the switch manually it seems like it is relatively hard to move. The more times that I push the button in succession the weaker the actuator seems to be. I have a hard time believing that all door lock actuators would fail at once. I notice that when I activate the switch that there is a clicking under the dash somehwere in the proximity of the steering column. I am wondering if there is some sort of a relay/capacitor module or something that needs to be replaced? Is there a way that I can use a 12 VDC jumper to energize and test each door lock actuator? Have you ever heard of the mechanism needing to be lubed so that it moves more easily? When can I expect an answer?And by what means?
