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?

The auto door locks on my 1991 buick regal quit or only work intermittenly. I bought a new transmitter (hand unit) and replaced the relay under the dash. The dealer could only program the new hand piece to work only the doors not the trunk. Ont the inside of the car the lock and unlock buttons only work once in a while. Are there anymore relays associated with the auto door locks? Tired of opening the dorrs with a key! Wolfman

Okay, this is a new spin on my old problem, which is I can't get me shift lever out of park on my 1998 Kia Sephia. Shift lock actuator has been changed, no luck. I get no click when I step on the brake pedal, and the new spin is that my brake lights now do not work. Is there a switch that actuates the brake lights that also allows voltage to flow to the shift lock actuator?


Hi\015\012\015\012If your car won't get out of park and your brake lights do not work, then it is most likely a defective brake light switch. The brake light switch energizes an unlock solenoid that allows your shift lever to move out of ... Kia Sephia

Having problems with front doors on 1999 Ford Explorer. I want to replace door locks and actuators. The doors don't always unlock, had actuators and one lock replaced by dealer on back doors ( cost me big bucks $$). Need to save some money so I want to do it myself. Can you give me step by step instructions and if any specials tools are necessary? Took off door panel and looked at lock and actuator as I replaced a speaker. Looked pretty tight and I see a rivet for something by the lock


You will probably find it easier to replace the actuator after removing the door latch. \015\012\015\012The actuators are held to the door with a 1/4" rivet (#1) that will have to be drilled out, but the way the linkage is made it is almo ... Ford Explorer

Liftgate will opened manually but won't open under power....I was told it needed a motor but can get no info on where it is, in the liftgate or on the side panel where thr arm is. 2002 Chrysler.

2002 chevy blazer, while the children were playing with the door locks and the remote locks at the same time, the security system was tripped and the horn started to blare and the lights stayed on which started the car by its self and wouldnt shut off. then it started to smoke from the right side of the engine which the fire department told me that maybe it was the starter that was probably burned out and may need a new replacement. I'm going to get a new starter in a minute, but what would i do


I believe the problem is much greater than just your starter, sorry to say. So many systems were overloaded that internal damage was possibly and likely done to the circuitry of the security/ keyless system for the car to start and starter remain eng ... 2002 Chevrolet Blazer
