2004 Dodge 3500, passenger drivers side rear door electric locks not working. I took it apart and checked the unit, jumping the darker colored contacts will activate lock, reversing the wires and jumping will make it work in the opposite. Light colored contacts seem to do nothing. The wires running to the unit are orange, purple, green with a stripe and green. I do not get anything with a test light when I touch these wires in any combination and activate the locks. Wireing problem? Any suggestions where to check.

Hello -

We apologize for the delay.....many vehicles are being worked.

Please check fuses 18, 22, and 28 with an ohm meter..............

The only wires we show are the Light Green and the Tan/Orange going to that motor....

Also it appears that this may throw a code...it is worth the try to check to see if it has since it is free to check............. Please go to Auto Zone (AZ) or O'Reilly's (OR) and for FREE they can pull the codes to the car. Most important: Once they check your codes, if they find something and you don't get it fixed and need to get back with us, please make sure you tell us exactly what the code was, number and all. Example, if the code was E0568 O2 Sensor bad. Then make sure you give us all of that. While there for FREE also they can bring their tester out and check your battery and alternator.

It appears that the locks work through the dash cluster....

POWER LOCKS
The power lock system allows all of the doors to be locked or unlocked electrically by operating a switch on either front door trim panel. The power lock system receives non-switched battery current through a fuse in the Integrated Power Module (IPM), so that the power locks remain operational, regardless of the ignition switch position.
The instrument cluster locks the doors automatically when the vehicle is driven beyond the speed of 25.7 Km/h (15 mph), all doors are closed and the accelerator pedal is depressed. The rolling door lock feature can be disabled if desired.

Hello -

Though we are still working the door locks, I also wanted to let you know you may have some recalls on your vehicle.
The dealer may fix these for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on these to see if they apply to you.
