Door locks stopped working. Read on internet to take out IOD fuse and that would fix temporarily. That worked for awhile - now does not work. Took to dealer - they charged $428 and still not fixed and they do not know what else to do.
Do you
have the same problem?

Why should you pay for something if it did not work
I would suspect BCM

Read various repair questions online and tried the following: sprayed WD40 in the key lock of the driver's door, jiggled the wires under the steering wheel and push on the rubber plug that goes between the door and the frame on the driver's side. Locks have been working for a few days now. Unfortunately, I tried all these things at the same time so I don't know what caused the locks to work again.

Did u do the repair a Chrysler dealer ?
they should've flashed the BCM
since u said it did work every time u had removed and replaced the fuse
that make me believe that the BCM need to be at least check and flashed if not replaced
as a 1st step need to use a scanned and read what is happening with the BCM and if any codes is stored in it
and also check door lock switch

DOOR LOCK SWITCH
1.Remove door trim panel.
2.Disconnect wire connector from back of door lock switch.
3.Depress switch to LOCK position.
4.Using an ohmmeter, test switch resistance between Pins 2 and 3.
5.Depress switch to UNLOCK position.
6.Test resistance between Pins 2 and 3.
7.Test resistance between pins 2 and 3 while switch is in its normal unactuated mode.
8.If resistance values are not within the parameters shown, replace the door lock switch.

SWITCH POSITION CONTINUITY BETWEEN RESISTANCE VALUE
LOCK 2 and 3 5.3K Ohm +/- 5%
UNLOCK 2 and 3 2.0K Ohm +/- 5%
UNACTUATED 2 and 3 18.3K Ohms +/- 5%
