Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am

Open Question

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT, the doors will not automatically lock. They will unlock with the power button on the door panel but will not lock. Also, my driver seat is power and it will not lower. It is all the way up and won't go down. You can hear the seat trying to move when you push the button, but won't budge. I was wondering if they are both connected somehow or what the problem could be.

there will be two bolt that are hidden under your arm rest they will probably be hidden little caps that just pop off most likely a star screwdriver you will need a window handle remover tool if you have power windows dont worry about it but you will also need a door panel clip remover tool or you can get by with a screwdriver covered in a cloth insert at bottem of the door an gently pry untill the door clip start to pop and release you will also need to remove a screw where you open the door from the inside hope you get it off if you break any of the door clips(happens all the time) just take broken one to the dealer or canadian tire or parts jobber hope this helps

SOURCE: Ford F150 Pickup 2005 power doors unlock but will not lock

I had almost the identical problem on my 2005 F150 FX4 Extended cab last weekend. The power door locks would not lock using the keypad, remotes, or door buttons. Almost all other functions worked correctly. The doors unlocked, the radio delay functioned, and the interior lights dimmed. When I used the remote the horn would beep twice indicating that a door was open even there was no message on the message center that a door was open. When I used the keypad or remote, I could hear a soft click from behind the seat. I think it was coming from the body security module or body security module - whatever Ford is calling it this year. I pulled the fuse for the Power Door Locks(BSM). As I removed it, I heard a soft click - sort of like a relay resetting. It may have come from the VSM/BSM. It may have possibly been a stuck actuator releasing. I don't think so. It wasn't that load. In any case, everything is functioning correctly now.

SOURCE: how do i remove the rear door panel on a 2003

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls.

SOURCE: how do i go about taking off the inner door panel

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls.

How program my keyless entry remote for my 2003 chevy trailblazer


1. Close all doors
2. Insert key into ignition
3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver's door panel, continue to hold down
until instructed to release in step 9.

4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in a fairly rapid succession.
5. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
6. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
7. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
8. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
9. Release the power UNLOCK button on the door panel. The vehicle should respond by
door locks locking and unlocking automatically. (If locks do not cycle after you let go,
not before you let go of the unlock button, then the vehicle has not entered programming
mode and you must start procedure over. Remove key from ignition, open drivers door
and return to step 1 ). If the locks do cycle automatically then proceed to step 10.

10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the remote until the doors lock and
unlock. This may take up to 30 seconds.

11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional remote. (Including any existing remotes).
12. Turn the ignition to the ON position to exit the programming mode.
13. Test remote(s).

2002 pontiac grand prix - power door locks


I do believe the 3 beeps are telling you that you are about to lock your doors. Additonally that should signal you that have your keys in hand before you locks your keys inside the car. It's just an aural warning reminder that your doors are about to be locked.

99 Grand Am GT - power locks don't lock


easy one... many cars have the option of programing the lock sequence. Your manual (if you own one) shows you how to reset or program door locks. Someone may have press and held the lock switch in one direction for a short while which will put it program mode. If you dont have the manual you can try to hold the lock button torward lock for about 5-10 sec. You should hear a tone, then try pressing the switch again to reset.

Need front door panel removed from 2003 grand am gt


easy.......there r bolts (like 6 or so) that u need to undo. U have to take off the door handle cover and the grasp handle on the door and the triangle cover up by the mirror and disconnect any power windows or locks. When you are positive u have all the screws out and no electrical cords are connected through the door, just pull (gently) on the clamps that hold the panel on. Go around the door and carefully pull them out one or two at a time because you don't want to break any.

2000 Grand Am SE 4-Door


This is only a possible solution to your problem. I had similar problem with my car. It turned out that the window locking toggle on the driver door not only prevented the other windows from being opened by passengers but also controlled the door locks. When I unlocked the window control I was able to unlock the door. Another possibility is the armature inside the door has come off the locking mechanism.

1992 pontiac grand prix SE


get in the car anyway possible, you probrally cant open the door from the inside either. Your gonna have to reef the door panel off and reach inside towards the post where the door latches to, and play with it and unlock it by hand. what it is is the spring loaded locking part in the assembly rust out and wears out so that the door wont unlock. I have the same problem with my car i disconnected the power locks in my car cause when people want to roll the window down they accidentally push the lock button. then im stuck entering and exiting out of the passenger door untill i play with it and unlock it. so me and you are gonna have to replace the latch assembly from inside the door.
