Default Power locks on the fritz.

What the Olds does:
Locks and unlocks fine with the one OEM keyless remote.
UNlocks all doors with the driver'* door button.
UNlocks all doors with the passenger'* door button.
Locks and unlocks fine by manual means.

What the Olds does not do:
Lock doors with any internal power button.


...I have no idea where to start with this one.

Might even have something to do with your power antenna issue too.

some of the cars those years were wired with different supplies for different functions, check the fuses first. then i would check the output at the switch it may be that.

Thanks for the tips.

Car is sitting for a few weeks, need to gather up for new repairs, my radiator cracked on me. Hmph. Least the spraying coolant washed some of the leaking oil off the engine. Find the positive, find the positive...

Several of the links are broken in that thread I think. Or the issue might be on my end, but I can only see the last 2 pictures.

Nope.

The first 3 pics are merely links that say "Click to open the image in full size." and when I do so I get a screen for a vbulletin error message.

Hope this helps then! I had to refresh my browser once as it was slow to load the photos.

1-You will find a large electrical conduit with a 'ground buss' taped to it on the out side.

2- Very carefully cut the tape and pull the ground buss from the conduit.

3- Now with a small flat screw driver pop off the cover of the ground bus.
Pull the metal buss out of the connector.
