Need information on reason all access doors will not lock or unlock. rear gate locks and unlocks properly. Looked for a fuse and dealer said there isn't one. Is there somr connection between the door latches and the keyless entry that if they are out of adjustment, the keyless system wont work?

Did anyone ever find out what the problem was? This is driving me nuts. I'm tired of resetting the battery to fix the problem for a couple days. I don't want to pay the dealership $80 to diagnose the problem.

HELP!

My wife's 2005 is doing the exact same thing. Atleast now I know that disconnecting the battery will fix it temp. I've got all the schematics for the vehicle. if I find anything I'll post it.

My 94 Grand Caravan had this issue appear when we had our first sub-freezing weather this year. The auto-locks would not work either by the door switches or key-fob. This lasted 2 days then it began working again. Has not happend since then in freezing weather. When it did happen I could hear a click comming from the lock module under the dash, but nothing else.

Earle - We had a similar problem and found out it was the programming between the remote and the car. It can be reset by the dealership. We are now having a problem where the locks won't work via remote or car switch but the doors still open and close by remote. Can't figure out the problem yet but my husband works at a University with a technical division that includes automotive techs. Will probably have to put a call into them Monday since we can't find a fuse or relay for the power locks.

yes, they are very good vehicles. You may want to test ALL your fuses as manufacturers tie things together. For instance, the door locks on a Chevy Astrovan are controlled by the cigarette lighter. If that fuse goes out, you lose control of your locks and windows.

Mine came with my car and I was not aware that they use batteries. You can get them for 6 or 7 dollars at Advance instead of paying 20 or 30 at a dealer's. Mine just stopped working one day and that was the problem. They are the little round camera battery type.
