If it was mine I would take the rear inside door panel off and see if there is any rust or bind in the power door lock motor itself and also make sure that no one has broken a key off or stuck anything in the lock cause I had an expedition with this same problem and it was a broken key in the lock

When I lock and unlock the power locks on my 1999 Grand Cherokee I here a high pitch squeal coming from the back lift gate. I recently fixed the same problem on the left rear door. I need to know where I can get a new lock motor without having to pay the dealer their outrageous prices. The auto recyclers here are only willing to sell me the entire door so I can pull a single part off of it. Can you help me?

On my 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan EX equipped with right and rear power doors, they will unlock but will not open. I removed the motor on the right door and it seems to operate just fine on the work bench in both directions when power is applied. Is there a relay, fuse or something else that I might be able to replace or fix to cure this problem? Also, how often should I chage out spark plugs? My driving is about half and half city and open road driving. Thank you for your help on this.
