1998 Saturn SL2 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles
When I try using the power locks with any door switch or the keyless entry, all of the solenoids buzz but do not move the locks. The battery also went dead after a couple of days without driving. I removed the ground and recharged the battery. When I reconnected the battery, all locks opened so I figured that the door lock problem was causing the drain on the battery. The door lock relay in the fuse block was very warm so I pulled the fuse. According to the wiring diagram this should cut power to the locks and cigarette lighter but I still have power to them. A check of the amperage across the fuse holder shows 5.5 amps. I removed the hot relay to break the circuit but the unlock button on the keyless entry would still operate the solenoids. A single click would lock the front doors and unlock the back. A double click would unlock the front and lock the back. Very bizarre.
I replaced the relay but that had no affect.
