The passenger side power door lock is being temperamental. Sometimes, the power lock will lock/unlock the door and sometimes it will not. Sometimes, it will properly lock/unlock a second or two after the driver side door works. When it doesn't work, the manual lock switch still moves, it just moves less than when it locks appropriately. This is true of both the wireless and interior lock button. The door will lock and unlock just fine if done manually or with a key.

Hello,

It sounds like you have a lock actuator that is not working. I would remove the door panel and use a test light to confirm it is getting power when you use the switch.

Here is a diagram to help us.

Please let us know what you find.

Both the power windows and power locks will not work at all. I am guessing the switch in center console since it works both? I have checked fuses and all seem fine. Sunroof and other interior items working fine

Hi ralphdeguzman,

Check for a faulty door lock actuator or open wiring circuit.
