Default Problem with power locks

Having problems with my power locks, When you push to unlock and lock in my car it wont do anything. I dont know if this is common or not, but i would really like this to be fixed. I dont have a good back so i cant reach to unlock the doors :(

Have you checked the fuses(sorry I don't know which one)? Do you hear anything, like a clicking relay, coming from the glove compartment area when you press the door lock switch?? Have you tried both the passenger and driver switches?

Oh, and Welcome to the Club!

Is it from the Drivers side only or all the way around?

Sounds like the relay to me. Is there any clicking noise from behind the glovebox?

The dead battery is a dead givaway that it'* most likely a stuck contact behind one of the Power Door Lock Switchs. The same happened to me awhile back(although my battery did not suffer as much as yours did). Once I freed the stuck contact, it was good as new.

Could a wire possibly be fried or cut somehow?
